"Tournament Catch Up pt2" - August 31 2017

A couple more tournaments and we are all caught up. I've had a nice little break with a vacation up north and some Charlevoix smallies. After that the focus is all on salmon until the Michigan Bass Nation State Championship on Muskegon Lake.

Tournament Catch Up

It’s time to catch up on some tournament news/details. I’ve got a couple to go over, the Payback Bass event on the Grand River and the D&R series event on White Lake. You are probably thinking why Shaun and I would go back to the Grand after the beating we took. We just can’t help it!

The Payback tournament is a little different than most, 400 dollar entry fee with a 5000 dollar guaranteed first place. Also you have to have your money in ahead of time, so no one is pulling out of the event because of a bad practice. I was hoping to get some more practice time on the river that week, but we ended up going to Lake Huron for work. We did get a day in right before the tournament and tried some vastly different things than we are used to. We had some decent fish going in 4 areas, so we had high hopes for the next day. We started in an area we don’t really have much experience in but had a bunch of fish in it.

Give Em The Shank

I'm coming off the most disastrous tournament in recent memory (a few weeks ago now). Yes we had a limit of fish on, but even then they weighed about 8lbs. Things Just didn't turn out our way at the Grand River D&R tournament, so we dumped our 3 and got on the road.

I don't have a whole lot of details on this one. Practice was brief for me as Amanda, Mabel, and I came home from the hospital that day. I met Shaun at the lake and immediately had to put the plug in the boat. Meaning practice was starting with me fishing in my underwear, hopefully everyone enjoyed the show. There wasn't much to see in that little bit of time, and we had nothing good to go on. If there is one place where that doesn't mean much it is the river. We just went fishing and despite catching a bunch of fish, the size was terrible.  It wasn't like we were fishing places where little fish were common. But every time one would roll on the rat and then eat a bullet craw, it would be a disappointing 13 incher. That's really about all I've got to say about that one so we are going to move onto something far more important.
