Afterwork Float - June 17th, 2019

Brad, Evan, and I hit the G after work for a quick 4 mile 3 hour float. We where on the edge of a storm but never got hit luckily. The fishing was tough and all I could manage was a bakers dozen dink’s. Still fun to share some time on the water. 

Miles Floated = 4.5
Total Fish = 13
Biggest Fish = 12.0”
Biggest Five Fish = 55.0”
Minutes per Fish = 13.8

WVKA Jackson County Shootout - June 8th, 2019

I headed to Jackson County for the second WVKA live event of the year with very few expectations. I did have a plan based on my experience and 11th place finish their last year which was the first and last time I had ever been there. I started off early with Ned but water was so muddy that was slow. I switched to a plopper and started getting bites. Then I caught a 20.5” on a bone plopper. So much fun to catch one that big in top water. Then as the day went on the plopper bite died, so I switched to a necko rigged sinko. The necko was really working, I went on to catch 31 total Fish under tough conditions in which much of the field of 87 anglers could not find five. I did not expect to win but that is exactly how it played out. Harper and I finished 1st place team and he finished 4th overall. Road wins are always the sweetest. 
Total Fish Caught = 31
Biggest Fish = 20.5”
Biggest Five Fish = 72.25”
Minutes per fish = 13.5
Tournament Finish = 1st out of 87 and 1st out of 18 teams
