This past Sunday seemed to be a tough outing for most of the 160 anglers in the Bassmaster Weekend Series tournament on the Mississippi River out of Red Wing, MN.  Usually these pools produce better weights then it showed on Sunday.


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!
