Pair of sixes takes the tourney today...
WOW!!! It was a nail biter...Thirty minutes into the game I check with Matt and Zack. Zack and I havn't had a bite..Matt has lost a 6 pounder on a 'Certain ' sandbar.

Zack and I decided to flip.Matt was drifting sandbars. At 8:00 I boated my first fish..a 2 1/2 pounder..This fellow here was looking for a Chuck roast.

15 minutes later..close beside this gator I got a good bite..I'm a yelling,Zack can here me from far away.."How much is it", says,Zack..."It weighs in at an even 6 pounds"says I.

I'm thinking I got this tourny in the bag. I now have 8 1/2 pounds .I ask Zack, "Catch any Zack?" To my surprize I hear,"Ya, I got a 4 1/2 and a 5 1/2 ." Oh crap! That's 10 pounds..I then flip my buttocks off...caught a dink, a 2 pounder and lost a good one in the thicket..

Touney is over at 11:00 ..At 10:30 my arm is going to fall off..I was heading to a secluded spot only known by me I think..very secret.On the way there I said.."Shoot,I'm going to crankbait this "Certain ' sandbar where Matt lost a 6 pounder this morning.".First cast...rod is bent..a good 4 to 5 pound is hooked..drag is too comes unbottened..heartbreaker for sure..Next cast...dang..rod is bent over...and after a nerve racking fight..I boated my 2nd 6 pounder...
My next cast....I hooked into what looked like a 7 or an 8 ..I got her to the boat..she tarponed clean out of the water..hitting my net barely and ...swam away..:s7::violin:

Good game.
The crankbait was a Norman DD 14 Tennessee Shad.

It was a great day of fishing. I boated 8 total fish with the biggest being 5 1/2 and the other 4 1/2. This is a picture of my 5 1/2 pounder. another close call to getting the win behind Chuck haha.

How did the Lightning Rod do for ya??
I only boated 5...and lost 3 very nice ones..I thought it was impossilbe to lose one on a crankbait..NOT!!

It worked great! I didn't miss a single fish with it. All my hook sets were great, right in the top jaw. I was very happy with it and the braid I was using.

GREAT!!!! You need to put a date in the picture of your 5 1/2 pounder and post it on the toruney thread..your 4 1/2 won't count because you don't have a pic..Sorry about that..

Sunday and Monday will be very good..I'm going Monday with Andrew's girlfriend with some shiners..

Congrats Guys! Nice pic of the gator as well. I think I would have a difficult time fishing with those gators watching my every move...LOL An even harder time if I was fishing from a Kayak or a canoe...

flhunter91 06-30-2012 08:13 AM

I'll get the date thing fixed. I'm thinking of going out tomorrow and just try to fish those bars. I avoid them every time because of the lack of experience and confidence fishing around them. I just want to get used to the different areas besides just some good shore line spots. Had a great time today though

Chuck7 06-30-2012 08:30 AM

Zack..if ya want..come on over ..right now and play some chess.

Appreciate the responde brother Phill...the gator was 30 inches from the boat...a small gator but still has teeth...and vise like jaws.

flhunter91 06-30-2012 08:34 AM

I would like to Chuck but my sister and my brother in law are coming into town tomorrow afternoon and my mom has a whole list of chores I need to get done to get the house in a more presentable shape haha. We definitely will get some chess time in though.

10-4 good buddy..Matt wants a different lake next week...which is understandable..are you up to fish another tourney next week..I"m sure it will be a Tenoroc lake.
