    Well, my partner and I got 2nd at the tournament last Saturday. That makes about the 8th time I've placed 2nd. We lost by less then 3 lbs.

    There were only 15 boats. 215 lbs total fish caught with the top five boats getting 200 lbs.

    It was a stormy Saturday morning. The lightening got us to goosy that we got out of the water and under a shelter for a bit. The weather cost us about an hour of decent fishing. After the storm let up, we caught most of our fish by drifting.

    river limit rules, so 30 fish per 2 man boat. The winners had 18 fish and 50.3 lbs. My partner and I had, I believe, about 15 fish for 48.7 lbs. My brother-in-law in another boat caught big fish at about 8.5 lbs.
