The afternoon wasn't too bad, weather-wise. Overcast skies, highs in the low 50s, light wind. Water was slightly stained where we were (McKaskey Cr) with 46-47 degree temps. There was a pretty good turnout today with 29 boats plus mine, 51 anglers weighing 64 bass for a total of 100.31 lbs (6 LMB). We managed a pretty smooth launch and load even though it was a bit slow with only one ramp open. Thanks to Mark S. for volunteering to blast everyone off!
Here's the way the money paid out:
Jacob and myself had sixth place with 3 fish for 5.29 lbs and $22
Kelly had 5th place with 3 fish for 5.68 lbs and $44, Hopefully someone who knows him will let him know that I have an envelope for him. Ironically this is the first event he's fished in about 5 weeks and today we managed to get him the envelope from the last time he won a little money! Stick around for the pay out guys, don't assume your sack won't get anything until it's over!
Mike G. and Andy had 4th place with 3 fish for 5.78 lbs and $74 (See what I told ya, Andy?? you picked a ringer!!)
Wayne I. was in the money again with a 3rd place finish with 3 fish for 5.86 lbs and $87
Bob (FnF) A. had second place with 3 fish for 6.42lbs for $100 (that's the second time this winter that Mr. Bob got in the money with the Float n Fly!
Largemouth Master, Joe C. got the trifecta (again) with 3 fish for 8.51 lbs and Big Bass with a 4.38 lb LMB. He picked up $108 for 1st, $145 for Big Bass. and $300 for the side pot!!
Super Bowl Sunday next weekend but you can get this tournament done and still make it home (or wherever) for the game. Personally, not a big fan of the NFL anymore so I ain't worried about it. Come on out and join us!!
