#TBT My 1st Tournament Out of the Trophy???
memory of fishing the Excel Bass Tournament on July 17th of 2004 on the Whitefish Chain and I'm now absolutely positive I fished that tournament out of the Trophy. Was it the first tournament I fished out of the Trophy? I'm not 100% positive on that, as I might have fished a Team Bass tournament out of it on the 10th July and I think there was a Fishers of Men Club Tournament in that area as well.. But I do remember fishing the Excel Tournament out of the Trophy, I am certain of it. Interestingly, I didn't fish out of the Trophy for a very memorable tournament on Koronis Lake on July 31st with Team Bass where my 6 fish limit weighed 20.44lbs. I know for a fact that I fished that out of MT's old tin boat, the same one I fished the first two Excel Bass Tournament's out of that year. No wonder why I had such a hard time remembering when I got to use the Trophy. I didn't have it all the time depending on the needs of GEM Camps. I wish I would have started the blog earlier in 2004.
