Lake of egypt Federation Tournament...

Well went to practice at Egypt on Thursday and caught 8 or 9 keepers (over16") and total weight was about 21lbs. Then on Friday me and my Partner went up again and had a limt by 1030, so I wasn't feeling to bad although the boat pressure was going to be overwhelming for the next 2 days. Sunday Couldn't get my spot where I caught 5 keepers on Friday so went to next place only shorites. Then the next spot produced 2 keepers. By the end of the day I ended up with 4 keepers (4 fish limit) and 10.45lbs and 7th place overall. Did have a chance to have more weight but just had a mishap with the net, it was only 5lbs! Have a BFL next weekend and I am going down Thursday and Friday. Good luck fishing and God Bless!

Fun Fishing.....

Well I got to go fishing at Guntersville this past Thursday and Chickamauga on Friday with my good friend Andy Morgan. He called me on Tuesday night and invited me down for a few days to go have some fun and hopefully be able to learn a few things from him. While we didn't catch a lot of fish (trying to catch a 10lber)we were able to catch a few good ones from each lake . On Guntersville we fished swimbaits, rattletraps, and soft plastics. On Chickamauga Andy's good friend Tiper joined us for the day and we fished swimbaits, jerkbaits, jigs, and rattletraps. I will say that I learned a lot in those two days with him and hopefully I can put that knowledge to use in future events. Well got to try to get ready for the TBF event on Lake of Egypt this Sunday hopefully I can get a good start . Until next time good luck fishing !

Kentucky lake BFL

Well got down to pre-fish for the BFL on Kentucky on Thursday and on my first stop I caught some small fish and lost a fish over 4lb. Then my next stop resulted in 3 keepers ( one of them on left at top 6lb 10oz) at this point I had three in the boat with 13.5lb. My next stop I caught another keeper that put me over 16lb. As I kept working the main lake points with a jerkbait and cranbaits I culled up to 24lb 12oz for the day with 5 keepers( caught 9 total keepers). The next day I came down and worked a different part of the lake and thought I would try the same pattern here. My first stop resulted in three keepers and several shorties. Then a few more places without any keepers. And then on my last stop I caught a 4lb8oz and 6lb 1oz and my partner caught a 6lb 5oz all in the same general area about 100yard stretch of bank. So after this it was only 1100am and we already had 23lbs so we left the lake feeling pretty good about my chances on Saturday. On Saturday I managed only 1 keeper for 3.5lbs I don't know what happened to the fish but I could not catch them that day. I was throwing the jerkbait on a 6'8" powell rod(#684) and crankbait on (#703) using 10lb and 15lb lb triple fish flourocarbon line. Maybe next time it will work out.

Kentucky Lake...

Got down to Kentcky Lake on Thursday and Friday last week and had pretty good success. We caught most of our fish on crankbaits, jigs, rattletraps, tubes and other soft plastics. We caught our fish from the main lake all the way in the back of the pockects. I caught 7 keepers for the day on Friday and numerous other fish. Hopefully I will be able to get enough fish found for the BFL on 3/14. Here is a picture of one of the fish I caught. I think I will need 3 of these and a couple 3 pounders to be in contention.
