For a little tournment report.

It was a very fun and eventful day. There were 21 boats entered so not full, but a fair amount for being the middle of summer. A total of 11 fish brought into the scale. half of the fish would be in the 15-18 inch range, the others went from 19-23, with one being 30" weighing 10.07.

Not sure when all of the fish were being caught. There were alot of little walleyes in the 10-13" range, catfish about 13" also and 1-2 northerns caught about 4 pound range. One of the 19" walleyes were caught roughly 15 minutes before time to place in 6th.

The 30" walleye was caught at 12:32 and was really aggressive. Trolling with a rap at a fast action pace. When i got it landed in the boat i knew for sure i had the tournment won and big fish ticket. When it hit felt more like i snagged a carp possibly in the tail or top fin.

Thanks to all of my teachers of the past, alot of luck getting the one bite, and a decent day out made the tournment a really awesome one. Even better yet for being my first one entered.

Good luck to all and have fun
