FEBRUARY 24, 2007

The morning started out looking pretty nice, the forecast was for high winds, 20 - 30 mph. When we launched it was nice and mild ~ 45 degrees and not windy at all. But that was short lived, around 7:30 the wind started kicking up. By mid day the water was sure enough getting rough,
especially out on the main river.

Me and my partner tried some Carolina riggin' but it was just too windy and we headed for some more protected waters. It was one of those days that if you happened to pick the right spot and found some fish and it was out of the wind then that was the place to spend the day. That was Mack's strategy and it worked out well for him. The creek he picked produced quite a few keepers and with the wind building stronger and stronger as the day wore on he decided to stay there. It was overcast the entire day but fortunately it did not start raining.

Unfortunately for Dan Nash, winning the 50/50 raffle did not have the same effect on his fishing as it did last month for John Buck.
Overall not too terribly bad of a day, better than Blackwater but not as good as our last trip to the Tensaw in December when we launched from Scott's and caught 7 limits and almost 60 lbs of fish. Our catch this time was a little more than half that with 35 lbs.

This was Brian's first tournament with us this year and he jumped back in with a bang bringing in the lunker of the day and winning the big fish pot. Next month is our first 2 day tournament and we will be having a fish fry on Saturday evening - Thank you in advance to Dave Dyess.
