And so tournament #4 is in the books!
The day started foggy and ended rainy. The forecast I watched called for rain at 3 PM. But of course it started at 1 PM—and it was cold! It also stopped the moment we got off the water. Figures.
Anyway, I caught most of my fish on spinnerbaits, but all were relatively small. The foggy morning was begging for topwater baits, but no matter what I threw—frog, Whopper Plopper, buzzbait, etc.—the fish weren’t biting. For me, anyway. I had 72 inches total.
Edward Neely had a pretty good day, catching all his on topwater. He had five fish for 74 inches, which got him third place. Unfortunately, with just six people showing up we only paid out two spots.
Donald Davis and his brother-in-law, Jim Coleman found them out “deep” and they both came in with 85.5 inches apiece.
And so the tie-breaker went to the angler with the biggest fish, which happened to be Donald Davis. Again. Don’s big fish went 21 inches, good enough to secure first place and lunker!
Since we only paid out two spots, that means Jim took second. Congrats, fellas!
Thanks to everyone who came out! Despite the final hour downpour, it was a damn good time.
Next one is Snipatuit. Hope to see you there!
