Well done, ye brave souls! I signed them up, went home to my toasty office and came back to weigh them in! We had 8 boats, 12 anglers and every boat weighed fish today. That was a bunch of haggard looking guys, cold and wet to say the least!! When it was all over we weighed 23 fish for a total of 40.29lbs (average 1.75lbs per fish), and a 3.61lb spot for Big Bass. There were only two places paid today and the young guns ran away with the cash!
2nd place went to Stephen and Chase with 3 fish for 6.30lbs and $48
1st place went to Garrett S. with 3 fish for 8.99lbs (awesome!) and Big Bass with 3.61lbs (he had another one almost as big!). Garrett won $72 for first, and $40 for Big Bass and the side pot of $80. WTG, Young Man!!
Next Sunday we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, so we will not be out there. We will be returning on New Year's Day to get this year kicked off on the right foot (be sure and eat some black eyed peas at midnight to get your good luck going for the new year!!).
We are finally down to one lane at Gatewood with the water below the line and dropping. I am hoping they pull it all the way down this year, but you just can't predict what the CoE will do for certain
