Well if you believe the weatherman the forecast calls for perfect weather w/ light winds. That calls for BIG sacks of fish to be caught. Everyone I have talked to since Friday have seen fish everywhere on and near beds. Some have reported seeing some in the SAL range. Let the next SAL donated be from the Wed. night tourney, how awesome would that be!! Lets beat the all time TTZ record of 29 boats as well. If you need help finding us at City Park, look for the pile of dead blue soda cans and the row of boats… See everyone there.

Wish I could be there, but am skipping out this week for a few reasons. Mainly though because I've been fishing A LOT lately, and I promised the wife last week that I wouldn't fish tonight so we can have a date night. Plus in addition to that, I've got a lot of small maintenance things that I need to work on with my boat before I can get out fishing again. Things keep falling apart and I just keep fishing. heh :cool:

There were some nice fish brought back in. If I remember right, big bass was 7 something. I think a bag of four was the largest sack brought in. I can’t remember the total weight though. Maybe 12 something. Most of the anglers had one or two fish, it was a tough bite for sure. We graphed a lot of fish, but they all had a bad case of lock jaw.

I better shut up and wait for the results because I’m not 100 % on my facts, but at least you get a some what picture of the results.
