Another tournament down!
Crazy day, weather-wise. The morning was windy and cloudy with a bit of sun. After a few hours the rain came barreling in and poured on us for another three hours or so, and then the wind calmed down and the sun came out and cooked us for the last two hours.
We had 14 anglers today and paid out three spots.
The bite was tough for me. I had one 11.25-inch dink until about 9 AM, then added a 15.50. I hopped over to Robbins Pond around 10 AM and was able to cobble together a limit of small fish. My last—and biggest—entered my net at 1:56 PM, four minutes before the tournament’s end.
Despite my struggling, plenty of fish were caught by the other guys. Some big girls, too, and one absolute BEAST! That would be Bruce Levy’s 23-inch slooooooob!
(Adding insult to our injury, he also had a 20.25.)
Bruce thought he didn’t have a scale, but it was in his yak all along. Bummer. The fish was over 7 pounds all day, though. No doubt.
And of course it was tournament lunker. Hard to beat a fish that big. Congrats, man!
Taking third place for the third time in a row (and fourth time this year): Donald Davis. He had a respectable 70.50 inches (as did Domenic Eno, in fact; but Don had the bigger fish for the tie-breaker). He pulled this off even after taking an old-man nap during the rainstorm.
Though the fish didn’t come easy for me today, I somehow managed to haul in a decent limit of 75 inches. That was enough for second place.
And for the third time this year, Bruce Levy comes out on top, taking home the trophy, the money, and Edmar! Anchored by two big fish, Bruce laid 84.75 inches down on the board today. Dude is on FIYA! Congrats, man!
As always, I appreciate everyone coming out.
Our next tournament is an evening/night tournament at the Nip on July 22. We will be fishing from 4 PM till midnight. If you plan on fishing with us, make sure you have the appropriate lights on your person or kayak.
Before that, though, we will be hosting the KBF Trail Event on Lake Winnipesaukee. This one goes down on July 8 (click here for details).
