First off, Congrats to JP on the win :wink: There were lots of nice fish caught yesterday and it was fun to hang with the WCF crew once again. I did indeed lose a very nice stringer of 5 fish :oops: I started the motor to head back to the weigh in and forgot the motor was in gear. The stringer chain caught in the prop right as the engine turned over and pulled the stringer snap out of the oarlock. Unfortunately the water was very dirty and I was unable to recover it. I had a good friend send me a very nice email telling me how good things come out of bad situations in life. When I look back at it, I take solace in knowing that I never lost my temper or composure about the whole situation. I often have a problem with my temper, and although it was hard to go back and weigh the rest of the fish, I took everything in stride the best I could. The worst thing to me is that the fate of this fish is probably not good. They definitely deserved better then that. Again, congrats to JP and it was great to see you guys again.

Congrats Jaypee! You were on fire! I had one busy day grabbing all the fish you were catching. I got major bass thumb from your fish and not mine - lol.

Cooler with aerator works when you don't have too many fish in there. We had eight fish at one point and my biggest (about 2lbs) died right before getting to the first weigh in. :cry: That was most unfortunate.

Yeah, another great tournament to be a part of and again several guys were within one fish of being in the top 3... Having it so close after the first weigh really makes the last few hours so much fun to fish... MPlant, my 2nd short is probably 14 inches now, maybe I shoulda squeezed the tail a little more! And by the way, get that motor fixed!!! :mrgreen: Great to fish with such a class group of people and I can't wait to join you all again in July...

Fishing the Bass open at Shabbona next Saturday with my wife... Hope the weather cooperates next weekend because she sure ain't gonna put up with a 2 hour rainstorm that's for sure... Anyone here thinking of fishing? One fish could win you a crisp Benjamin! - BPM

Tough luck Matt! Its just one of those freak accidents. I had that happen. It was only one fish, but it might have been big fish that day. I really didn't care about that though. What I felt really bad about was the fish swiming around for its last day with a chain stringer attached to its face. It actually made me rethink if I was really all that interested in tournaments.

Congrats to the winners and all other particpants! Looks like it was a good day for it.

Thanks guys for running a great program. I had a lot of fun fishing in my first WCF event. I'm definitely in and looking forward to the next one. It was a very close race...one more fish for a lot of guys would've put them in the money running!

Cya next time

Anyone care to share what techniques were most productive this weekend? Hot baits? And where's the pics of those two 3.3# fish?
sorry I took no pics of the big fish...it was raining, and pic taking is a pain in the butt in the rain!!

hot baits haha... one green senko, and one hot pink senko wacky rigged on a size one circle hook. muhahaha :twisted:

oh and i think the cooler that was left was Aris...i think he had his fish in there at the frirst weigh in...but im not positive.

Thanks again

JaYPee The HHF!
