I ended up pre-fishing Thursday and Friday and then had the tournament that Saturday.

Here are my Thursday, Friday, and Saturday totals:

24 hours of fishing
8 hours of driving
5+/- smallmouth bass
20+/- largemouth

Biggest was largemouth: 3.5+ pounder that spit the hook at the boat Friday.

Biggest smallmouth: 2.5+ pounder also Friday.

Saturday I ended up weighing a 3 fish limit for 5.64lbs. 2 largemouth and 1 smallmouth. After looking it up it I missed being in the money by less than a pound frown
Officially finishing 22nd out of 75 Co-anglers.
But I have no regrets and never lost any fish that would have helped me. Instead of getting angry missing a check by less than a pound in multiple tournaments this season I am using it as motivation to continue getting better.

Congrats to my buddy Matt West with a 12th place finish on the boater side with 13.18lbs with 4 fish.

Also, congrats to my boater Gary Howington that finished 3rd place with 14.98lbs 5 fish limit!!

What an amazing last couple of days. My boater ended up being a retired BASS ELITE SERIES Professional Angler that fished the Elites for 23 years!! Man it was fun and did a lot of learning and got to hear some awesome fishing stories.

I ended up catching all my fish off a dropshot roboworm , shaky-head grandebass worm, or Carolina Rigged Senko.

Next Event for ABA WBS Alabama North Division will be at Lake Weiss June 7th. This should be a fun event. It will be my first time on Weiss and looking forward to it. I should be able to pre-fish at least one if not 2 days on Weiss before tournament day.
I have a good idea on what to expect at Weiss but if anyone has any small pointers or tips to possibly keep in mind it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time,
Frank

The most I have heard about Weiss during the summer months is how powerful shallow boat docks can be with flipping jigs.
