Fishing Notes

We took off today from PB2 at 6:00 AM with high expectations to compete well and objective to catch 20 pounds. We ended up with 15.47 pounds and left some good ones in the lake, including 5-6 pounder that came undone as Wayne was reeling it in from deep 30′ plus water and a 4 pounder that came off at the boat when trying to net it. Everything started off pretty slow, we had one small keeper off the first spot and then proceeded to catch a small limit by 8:30. We moved pretty often. We had a bites at every place we fished but no big ones, just shorts and more small keepers. Our first big bite came about 10:30 when Wayne caught a 4 plus pounder on the jig off a main lake point in about 20-30′ of water, about 12:30 I caught a 4.37 pounder off a long tapering point and about 1:00ish Wayne caught a nice 3 pounder on a bluff ledge point. We really needed at least one or two more good ones, we culled three times but had two small keepers that we could not upgrade. I think we finished in 6th or 7th place. The winning bag was 20+ pounds. It was a fun day but a bit disappointing in the end, as the 6 and 4 pounders that came off would have put us pretty close to winning. That is tournament fishing however.
