This past Sunday seemed to be a tough outing for most of the 160 anglers in the Bassmaster Weekend Series tournament on the
I went in with expectations of putting together a solid limit and getting some good points for year to date standing based on my less then stellar practice. In the back of my mind, I thought if I fished hard and did not lose any fish, I could possibly cash a check.
All in all, things went well, did not lose any good fish and got one big bite. At the end of the day, I had a mixed bag of smallmouth and largemouth that weighed 12.03lbs and was good enough for 12th place and a decent check. See full standings here.
My key baits were a 3/8oz Tru-Tungsten Jig in a brown/purple color with a Green Pumpkin Rage Chunk trailer, plus I got two good bites, one on a Crazy Legs Chigger Craw and the big fish came on a Chatterbait.
Tru-Tungsten Jig was my work horse&chatterbait score my kicker fish!
