Fished the Big Bass Tourny on LA with Son Billy today.  Bites were far less today than yesterday.  Only had three keepers around 1.5 to 2 pounds.  Joe Connell had much better luck as he had  a limit that would weigh 15+ pounds.  He actually won the Big Bass Tourny with a 6+ pounder.  Congrats to Joe.

We had 6 participants:
Larry P. and Billy P.
Joe C.
Dan and Don

Three separate times today I felt something like a bite, set the hook, and reeled in....a tree limb. I'm no expert, but they looked like pretty good specimens, and they fought well.

I didn't think the weigh bag by itself weighed much at all, but got home and weighed it and realized bag does actually weigh 8 ounces, so Joe's winning fish was an actual weight of 5 lbs. 10 ozs.

Nice going, Joe, and thanks to all who came out.
