    Jerry did well the day before the tourney and the day of the tourney got to talk to him a little bit, it was tough fishing. We had been doing well all week and then the day of the tourney we got a few dinks and alot of misses. Tough fishing and lots of wind.

    Cuz and I were there, I can say it one one big NUTROLL.:confused2: Pretty much everything that could've went wrong for us, did. Lost castnet, someone backing into my boat trailer, ect, ect....Ill let Cuz fill yall in. We did weigh in 3 fish for 20 lbs. You could call miserable conditions and understatement. When you don't feel safe in a 24ft SeaArk, somethings wrong! LOL. Surpisingly, there were alot more boats weighing fish than I figured there would be for such tough conditions. I think 1st place was around 120 lbs, which is kinda light for Henderson from my experience. On another note, It was nice seeing some old faces again, Jerry, Michael Jake, Kirk, and others.:wink:

    Nutrolls are weird. They suck at first, especially when you are in the middle of one. But if you think about it, when you are with your boys telling stories, reminiscing -- it often goes into discussion of "nutrolls" past.

    So in time, all i can say is that they get better. Appreciate them...:wink: Of course, I might be rationalizing my lack of catching fish, so it may not be so pertinent to you fellers that actually have fish catching stories. :roll_eyes:

    Russ, I have no clue what place we finished in, we didn't think we made the cut, so we pretty much hit the road. 2 hours of sleep in the cab of the truck had us fatigued for sure, and we were ready to get home and get some rest.:eek:oooh: I don't think Im gonna fish the New Madrid. Cuz is running a tournament at the boat club, he's the activity director, so I don't think he is gonna get out of that one.:confused2: Looks like I may be headed down your way this weekend to prefish with a buddy who is fishing it though. I might look you up later in the week!:wink:

    It was in the newsletter they sent out. "On Saturday, May 9, 2009, we will be having our first Spring Fling with an amateur catfish tournament at the club grounds. The catfish tournament is for members only and their guests. It will be held no matter what the weather or river conditions are. Immediately following the end of the catfish tournament at 3:00 PM we will be holding a cook out at our new club house."

    If you didn't get the newsletter or can't find it and want to enter, let me know & I'll send the rules info & such to ya.
