Fished this tournament to show our support for BSCBC, a couple of their guys have shown up to our weeknight tournaments and some fish them on a regular basis so we wanted to return the favor.

It was hot out there today, caught fish all day but most were 13.5 inchers; had 6 keepers and ended up with 12.75 after dead fish penalty.  

I think they had 14 teams and were going to pay 1 place and 1 Big Bass.  When we weighed in I think 17 pounds was leading with a near five pound Big Bass.  Since our big fish was 4.12 lbs and my partner and I were both going on an hour of sleep from the night before, we decided to leave before the rest of the teams came in.

I am curious though as to what the other weights were.

Dad and I fished the tourney. Was like you said Andy, hot! Our outcome was close to yours, we caught small fish one after another all day, just couldn't get the keepers. We ended up with 2 had a 4.10 and a one almost 2. Had a great time fishing, just couldn't get the keeps. Anyways, off to the next one! Eat Sleep Fish Skeeterdale
