    Wow, what a roller coaster ride I have been on this weekend…
    It started when I took this past Friday off to make sure I stay in the top ten for my club…

    I messaged around and got some tips since this would be the first time I fished the Harris Chain of lakes in my own boat… So, I met up with Rodney (from The Bass holes ) and he said he was pretty sure he could put me on some fish…

    The long and short of it was he was RIGHT … the spot he took me too was flat loaded with fish… I stuck two fish (one by accident) which together would have weighed 3.25 pounds or so…
    I was expecting Saturday (Today) to be the same, boy I could not have been more wrong…

    This morning I arrived at the same spot, and the fish were there, but simply were not on the feed… The fish had shut down because of the front moving through...

    I did however, catch one keeper fish…

    It is always quality over quantity… and QUALITY I had…

    She weighed 7.9 pounds… 2 tenths of a pound heavier than my personal best… and in a tournament to boot…

    This big momma got me Second Place and Big Bass for the tournament and so long as one bigger is not caught next month on Crooked lake, I will have the Big bass of the year as well…

    Which will be a check worth $495 USD!! :laugh:

    To put this in perspective I am 6 foot 5 inches tall or for you metric folks 1.98 meters

    Mike A!

    Johnny, anytime wetting a line, whether you catch one or not is good for you in the long run...

    Fishing is one of those sports which lowers your stress levels immensely probably due to the nature which surrounds you while you are on the water...

    Cheers!

    NEW INFO!!!

    I practiced on the lake after this tournament and came in 2nd place... no big fish but I did manage a limit of fish (5 fish) per tournament rules which got me another check.

    It also solidified my 7.9 pound fish as the big bass for the year...

    The last three tournaments I moved from 10th Place to 3rd place in the points standings for my club!!!

    and took in a combined: $306 USD NOT counting the $495 I will get for winning Big Bass for the year!!!

    Here is a picture of my friends Chain pickerel from the lake we were fishing:

    The chain pickerel is a smaller cousin to the pike
