Default BASS TOURNEY..another amendment

Folks ,
It will be like last year with a northern and southern division..I also have a special surprize if anyone from the north can beat Buckhunter..he's very good and needs to come in second this year.{ -; no offence Buck..just need to see some more fish on here { -;

Smallmouth will stay the same...the seem to run the same size all over..Obviously we grow bigger largemouth down here.

Good thing you can not see me laughing at you...LOL

Chuck while Maines record largemouth bass is currently at 11lbs. and 10ozs. That does not mean we do not have them any bigger or not. Largemouths are relatively new to alot of us. They have been straying up rivers and into streams with a decent size pond in them. These ponds are normally brook trout ponds that some places require artificial lures. They hardly get much of any pressure at all. Some of these I will be putting to test when warmer weather opens up for us. I will admit our growing season is much shorter. Where as your bass are spawning we still have around 16 inches of ice on our lakes. But again we do get some decent size bass up here just the same.. Just harder to come across..

I respect you for changing the tourney rules again but I was ok with the way it was..

I wish we had brook trout ponds here. I have to hike into some of the most treacherous and shin-splinting places to catch them. After all that, a 9" fish is big. A pond would be nice.

I guess one has to adopt to his/her surroundings .

In Maryland growing up ( from 5 to 15) . I fished to get away from the house. I was raised in a very disfunctional home.My fishing was a creek about 1 mile away. It had eels,Northrtn Suckers, bluegills, a limited amount of smallies and rainbows...and one farm pond with bass up to 4 pounds...surrounded by mean bulls..not sure if I was allowed to fish it or not..we just did.

At 16 I got my drivers license and bought a book.Fishing in Maryland. This where I discovered many more places to fish..which included a beautiful trout stream one county over and a river not far away with tons of White Perch. My mom had subscribed me to every fishing and hunting magazine available. I grew up with a very strict step dad and fished and hunted on every opportunity I could find. In the summer I hunted crows and ground hogs...our ice never got that hard to safely ice fish..

I used to read about bass fishing in Florida. It's unreal .However, with all the pressure they just don't jump in the boat.

Presently my step dad and I get along very well. My mom and him ended up getting divorced and we have grown quite close.He's the best mechanic I've ever met. He retired as an electrician for I-95 highway. He restores antique engines and drives a Model T Ford. He's 82 and just last month put a new head gasket on..He's very smart.His education is 5th grade. I'm sure his hard beltings have kept me out of prison..so his strictness was most likely for my own good.At 17 I ran off with a very tough group of young men..most are dead now. I met the Lord at age 22...if not for that experience I know I'd be dead and suffering somewhere.
