    I think there were about 20 boats and 10-15 bank fisherman.Chris's big fish weighed 32 or 34lbs. and he said he lost a couple of good ones that cost him the win:sad2:.The guy is going to have another one next year again some time.

    There were 20 boats and about a half dozen bank fishermen. Our big fish was 33 pounds. We another one in the twenties and a couple of small ones. It was really a nice day to be out.
