    As a lot of you know, the Rising Sun Tournament was last weekend. I was lucky enough to get a last minute invitation that I couldn't pass up. I went out with MisterWhiskers. We headed out Friday night, got into bait really good the same night (aside from tearing up a net). We pulled an all-nighter Friday and headed to the ramp Saturday around 4:00 AM to start the tournament. I'm pretty sure we were the third boat in the water, beating all 106 boats was definitely worth getting there early!

    There was a lot of traffic. Being held in the daytime, the water got really choppy and there were a ton of pleasure boaters. Needless to say, we were still able to stay on the fish.

    Between Saturday and Sunday (it was a two day event) we caught over 14 fish - blues, channels, and one flathead.

    This being my first tournament, I had a great time. It was great to meet some fellow BoC members. I had a great time experiencing this tournament with Paul, he's a heck of a guy and he provided me with a wealth of knowledge.

    We didn't take home any money, but the most important thing is we had a great time altogether. Taking home the cash would have been a plus!

    Finally got the pictures, so this is kind of a late post. I'll attach a couple of pictures from the trip. The river was beautiful. The fog really made for some awesome sunrises!

    Nice job guys, they ever post the results yet?? Seems like the last few years, they took a month before they ever posted them. Kinda frustrating. I wish they would get it back to a 1 day tourney then I could fish it again.

    Glad I was able to help find Paul a partner, he is a good dude and it really helps a brother out when you can split the cost for something like that, those tournies get real expensive...:wink:
