IL Bass Federation.....

Well fished the first Illinois Bass Federation tournament on Lake of Egypt Sunday and if it could go wrong it did. As far as practice on Thursday and Friday they were great had over 17lbs both days and did'nt catch more than one fish off any spot and fished different parts of the lake and different patterns. Tournament day the crankbait fish just would not cooperate so went to a jig and broke off a big one and another 3lber pulled off by the boat. Had several other fish on the jig that just would'nt hold onto it. I ended up with 3 keepers and 7.47 lbs. As far as equipment I had the crankbaits on a Powell 703cb and a 753cb, with 12lb Triplefish Flourocarbon Line. The jig was on a Powell 705, with 15lb Triple Fish Flourocarbon Line. Going to fish a team event on Kentucky Lake this weekend so check back to see how we do.

GOD Bless

Lake of Egypt....

Well me and my buddy Doug went up to Lake of Egypt to get an idea what the fish are doing before next weekend. We have an Illinois Bass Federation tournament there. We ended up catching 4 keepers for about 13lbs and I lost another 4 to 5 lb fish, so we could have had a really good day if I would have got it in. We caught most of the fish on jerkbaits, crankbaits, and jigs. We were using Powell 684, 703 and 705 rods with 12 to 15 lb Triple Fish flourocarbon line.

GOD bless

First Kenucky Lake BFL...

Well finished the first tournament for the year at Kentucky Lake and it was not as good as practice.  During Thursday and Friday we caught well over 100 fish and at least 10 keepers.  On Thursday and Friday we caught all of our fish on crankbaits and jigs.  Thursday we had 16lbs and Friday we 13lbs in just a few hours running the same pattern as Thursday.  So we thought we had something going.  But a cold front came in and I guess it shut the fish down  that we were catching.  Had a buddy down there and he was catching fish in the same area as well and his pattern also dissapeared.  So after the first two stops of the tournament we had 3 keepers in the boat by 9:30 and thought it was going to be a good day but all we managed to catch the rest of the day was plenty of short fish. I ended up with 2lb 14oz and 117th.  Hopefully next time it will work out.  Here's a picture of a fish in Practice.

GOD Bless!!
