Our monthly TBC tournament was there this weekend. It was great. No we didn't win, but there weather was great, we caught lots of fish and just had a great day all together. It was a rough start. Where we started we only caught one fish and we stayed there for the better part of the day. By about one we had four fish in the boat. We had decided that we were just stuck in a rut of catching four fish or less. But then a front hit. We could see it coming. The wind had been at a minimum all day, but on the leading edge of this front the wind really picked up. The water color changed from the normal clowdy brown and turned this really erie bright green. But the fish also started biting! We ended up culling fish! It was great.
So we got out of the four fish rut, yeah us, but we are still stuck in a 12 pound rut! The last few tournaments we have fished, we have weighed in 12+ pounds, but not more than 13! Yep, we had five fish and they weighed 12.97! Oh, these ruts! Well, we will get out of it eventually, I just hope it is by breaking the 13 pound weight and not by coming in under 12!
We topped off the afternoon by taking Buddy, Katie and Mattie May on a quick run of the lake. Mattie May is now 3 and we have been trying to get her on the boat since she was born but every time the weather would turn bad and we didn't want her to have a bad experience on her first time and not want to go back out. Well it took awhile but we managed. I have attached a little video. It is pretty rough but I was sitting in the floor with my back against the front deck, holding the camera and nothing for me to hold on to. Enjoy your ride!
