Clear bluebird skies, nice stiff northwesterly wind, high temps in the 40s and water temps around 61-62 degrees, definitely a late fall day in north Georgia! We ended up with 21 paid entries, a total of 22 boats and 40 anglers including Wally and I. Fishing wasn't bad at all with 37 fish weighed for 62.13lbs (average of 1.68lbs per fish). WE also had a few more little fellows fishing today, I always enjoy seeing them out there with Dad fishing the tournament (keep bringing them out there, guys, that's the future of what we enjoy doing!).
WE paid five places today, Big Bass and a Side Pot. Here's how the pay got handed out:
5th place went to John (Shrek) and Lonnie with 3 fish for 4.85LBs for $32
4th place went to a couple of Young Guns, Garret and Jake, with 2 fish for 5.15lbs for $47, they also had Big Bass honors with a Spotted bass for 4.03lbs for $105.
3rd place went to Mike and Paul with 3 fish for $63
2nd place went to Mason (Young feller) and Scott (Dad type guy!) with 3 fish for 6.36lbs and $79
And our winners were Rick and Danny with 3 fish for 6.82lbs and $94 dollars, they also collected the side pot for about $210
I enjoyed seeing all of you today and look forward to seeing you next week. Until then, enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday and be careful!
