    Default Team Williams Iron man re-cap

    Had a great day. The weather was a downpoor but that just meant two things to me, not so hot and no pleasure boaters
    Our initial game plan was to run docks all day. I went and bought 4 bags of senkos Friday night. Weeelllll, that didn't happen. Early in the morning we decided to hit a main lake area with a deep drop off next to shallow water. We caught a couple nice fish there and chased that pattern the rest of the first period. I caught all of my fish on a dropshot(8" tag to weight). My dad mixed it up a little with some on a crankbait(5xd) and Carolina rig. The bite was pretty slow. We had to comb the areas multiple times at different angles to get bit. After the break we headed up the north anna arm to try to get something else going(docks). That wasn't happening again so we went back to our break lines to grind it out. Only managed 3 keepers the second round but was good enough for the win. Thanks to those that hosted for your help. It was nice to meet some of you guys and see some others. God bless.
    You cant catch'em if your baits not in tha water.

    That about sums it up. I will add that we caught all or most of them 10-20 ft deep. We found that we really had to be patient and fish reeeaaalllyyy slow. It was really good meeting some new folks and looking forward to another event somewhere down the road. It was a bummer that the defending champs were not able to be there to defend the title, but hopefully Jim did well in the FOM on the James and Eric is healing up.
