    Nice fish Russ! It was a frustrating tourney day to say the least. Bites were hard to come by. I knew a few teams would get them though. Good time none the less!

    Catfish Tournaments have a way of humbling the heartiest of anglers. I speak from experience.

    Happened to me same day as Russ also, but I was not on legal tournament water. A barge had me blocked off from getting the boat out so decided to go up an fish where I had seen some fish getting bait just for fun. 5 minutes later. I Hooked a hog. I was trying to get the bogas on her when the leader snapped. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 70 pounds I'd say. There were fish everywhere up there. Too bad it was out of bounds lol.
