Mike Bruno and Mike Metzger (sp?) won with 44.17 pounds. That over a four pound average. Nice work guys! The conditions were tough to say the least.

Good job Mike and Mike. I've known Mike Metzger since he was 15. He was a good fisherman then, and he is a real good fisherman now.

for sure congrats to mike and mike. those were two monster sacks. it is amazing the size of the fish coming out the centers the last couple of years. i wonder if it has to do with the foil or better understanding of the fish or the shallow water?

how did you do RossT?

we ended up 11th for the third straight year.

N/S Centre was good during an aba that I fished out there this year too, 19lbs won it. I think part of it is that it didn't see much pressure this summer with the lower water levels... who knows though.

We finished a depressing 15th... it's not your day when you break 50lb. braid twice and see the fish jumping trying to throw your bait. It was like rubbing salt into an already painful wound.

I would switch braids asap if that were the case.

RossT, i was gonna stop and say hi, but was pretty [PoorWordUsage] how the tourney went as well. i also gotta give it up to the original spiderwire for slop fishing i have never had a problem with it and casts just fine for the $.

good luck on the rest of your tournies for the year.
