    Default Pressidents Day Tournament

    Lee and I rode down in a somewhat steady rain and immediately found an empty space under one the covered storage sheds to load and get ready for the day. Wayne had 11 boats registered with some really good sticks in the crowd. Felt like we might be in trouble. Luckily by 7AM start it had stopped raining but it was cold and remained that way all day. We started at our usual spot in Contrary and Lee popped a 14" fish off the point on a JB. We fished there for another hour w/o a bite. Checked up into the S-turns and it started to get really muddy fast. From there we hit a couple of community spots on down to the Plant and Boggs Point. I caught a nice 3 lb+ fish on a JB across from the Plant. Yippee....first fish of 2018 out of the way. Lee caught a real fish on Boggs Point on a Jig on one very specific spot within the spot. SteveO knows the exact spot.....lol. We didn't venture any further down and decided at Noon to head uplake to satisfy Lee's need to see what the back of Plentiful looked like. Yep....MUD. Didn't spend hardly any time at all up there and came back down to where we started. Lee catches another on the same point....a 14"er. With 4 fish in the livewell we decide to hit the location across from the plant as our last stop. It is now 2:30PM. We try everything and on my very LAST cast with 7 minutes to spare, I catch our best fish at 3.83 lbs....tie chit down and haul a$$ to the ramp. We held our breathe that our 12.56 lbs would hold on for a little pocket change, but it was not to be. Jim and Jim bested us with a 12.79......Turkeys!!!!
    Congrats to Nate on one helluva bag (by himself), and Wayne and George for the really nice bag for 2nd. 4th ain't too bad out of 11 I guess. Until next time.......I remain.....clueless......lol.

    I know you don't brother. Appreciate it. Thanks. A LOT of people know that point, but don't know the little details that make it special.
