My son caught his fish early on a toad. Mine came at 2:47 in the afternoon on a jerkbait and I caught a yellow perch that was bigger than my bass on the very next cast. I caught another 5 short fish. I prefished last Saturday and only managed 2 small keepers. The big fish of the tournament came on a shadrap early in the morning.
Our next tournament is scheduled for Santee in November.
Bubba fished with his son and left early. Richie hasn't fished with us in quite a long time. The river was really crowded that day. I had never seen so many people fishing there at once. I heard that there were at least 4 tournaments going on.
