what a blast! looked like everyone caught some fish and had a good time. surprisingly there were a ton of fish caught today and the competition was delicious!

the lead changed several times throughout the day but with 3 minutes left before the final buzzer, tony (cubsfan) landed a 1.11 lb qualiifer to over take me for the win. 3 minutes dude! nice job tony! fishkid took big fish honors! big fish competition was really tight too. your 2.5 lber held up kid!! aris has your money. tony had a 2.4 oz and i had a 2.1. doc probably had a big one in there as well. as you can see, the competition was really tight right up til the end.

every time you hear a splash your like, "oh shit"! :mrgreen: LOL! we all felt it, admit it!

i'm not sure what the exact weights were. aris should post it soon. but i know i had the lead early, then toothdoc took the lead for awhile, then i believe fishkid took the lead with his big bass. then i believe tony took the lead, then i took the lead with a third fish right up until 12:57!!

I had a 3lb fish on with about half an hour left to go that would of sealed the win and big fish honors, but alas, it popped off! i know toothdoc lost a big one at the shore early and so did tony, so all is fair. but man, it hurt bad when i lost that fish. i was shaking!! that adrenaline is some powerful stuff man! :lol:

i think this was by far the most competitive round yet. it was neck and neck all the way to the last minutes. AWESOME!!! that was so much fun guys. thanks for coming out!!

thanks mr. 2007 Angler of the Year for being the official for this round!

there were 14 competitors and lots of new faces. also lots of friends and family that stopped by which made it look like a circus at the wwd! it was a sight to behold!!. it was shoulder to shoulder but we all managed. somehow!

sorry i wasn't able to meet all the new faces in person, i was "in the zone" so to speak. :mrgreen: glad you guys made it out and hope to see everyone back at round 2 in Feb.

deep lake tournaments are fun, but i have more fun at the wwd because i get to interact with everyone and see all the action.

anyway, i'll stop babbling. until next time gentleman!

Great Time with everyone again its only 3:15 and I'm already looking forward to the next tournament. I got a lot of Little Bass today 8" to about 11" about a dozen. I saw more Bass caught today than anytime I've been to the WWD. I still had a blast Congrats to all the winners I'm looking forward to next month. Pat

Had a great time out there today. I lost a nice fish right at the shore when he went under the bank. :cry: Like Bassman said, it was over 3 lbs for sure. One of these days I'm not going to lose a single fish and maybe I'll win one of these.

Although I kept getting fish that were about 12 7/8", I had a balst fishing with all of you guys. Funny, I don't think the minnows were working for me, but they sure liked the crawlers. It the exact opposite the last time I was out there.

My only complaint was the mud. I wish it was snow instead.

See y'all at the next tourney. Congrats to all that placed!

Although I ony had 2 qualifiers, I caught at least 10 fish at this tourney. Had a good time, nice to see everyone. All the old faces and the new ones but still the same old B.S. :D

Laughed my ass off at Toothdoc's expletive filled tirade, after he lost the "Big One", sorry Doc. :( Aris did one hell of a job as tourney official (I'll bet you would have had a better chance if you weren't running all over the place to weigh everyone's fish). There has to be a better way to officiate at the WWD tourneys.

P.S. told my wife that I had to work so I could make it for the tourney. Kind of hard to refute when she watches you unload fishing stuff from the car. By the way, does anyone have a spare room or couch to crash on :?:

Maybe we could have 2 officials(weight and photo ) one on each side of the discharge. I would be willing to do it as one for the next tournament. We can just all take turns at each event. That seems to be fair.

Congrats to the winners and qualifiers :D.

It was a fun but frustrating day for me. The closest I got to qualifying was an 11" and a 12 3/4" :roll:. Hey Mike the top if your odds were right on! Keep up the good work!

That sounds like a great idea to me!
