    I went down and checked out the weigh in board this morning. Two fish winner79.8. Biggest fish winner, 45.4. I counted 4 fish, 40+ and 5 fish, 30+. Just think, IF I had entered, and IF I caught that 50+lber that I'm after, I would have won the biggest prize. Instead, I wore my tail out, bushhogging the pasture. At least, I know there are plenty 40+ lbers in there, getting fatter every day.

    That was a fun tourney to fish it was my first time on the Rap last night and I am sure I will be back for more. We feel we did pretty good with finishing 5th spot with out having the knowledge that some of the local folks have on it.

    I'd say 5th out of 20 teams on a river you've never fished and at night is pretty darn good too. I think your partner had only fished it one time before so great job to the both of you. I couldn't get my boat ready to fish it but I was at the weigh in and am looking forward to the next time.

    I've never been out on that section of the river. It sure is an interesting river. As part of my job (environmental planner with Caroline Co.), I've been working with the Rappahannock River Basin Commission, mainly focusing on water quality improvement. The experts talk about computer models so much that folks get quite a laugh when I talk about fishing and other 'recreational opportunities.' Clean water and good fishing go hand in hand. It's a win-win situation. The bass fishermen are on board. Re-stocking, habitat improvement, shoreline stabilization, sediment removal are up for discussion. Catfishing generally doesn't get much respect, until folks realize the number of people involved and the economic benefit. Twenty teams and folks coming from Maryland to fish in the Rapp are proof and support for the restoration effort.

    Ok, I'm on my soapbox....Your ideas and comments are welcome.
