It kinda stunk getting beat out on the last day for big bass, thats for sure ( lost $400 ).

BUT all in all I am pleased with my performance at the classic. I got my limit of 5 fish each day. I just couldnt get any big fish. My 2 biggest came on the first day. One being close to 3 1/2 and the other almost 3. Then the rest seemed to be 12 1/2 " - 15 " ( we had exemption cards to keep 12 " bass )
