Well, we were down at the lake from Tuesday night until Sunday. The fishing was great all week. It wasn't incredibly consistent as far as a pattern goes. Some days we found them in 7 fow, and some days in 25+ fow.

On Saturday we fished the Friends of Parshall bay tournament. It was myself, the wife, and our oldest. The tournament had a 23" slot limit with one over. We started out great with 3 right at 23", and filled our 10 easily, but could not find that BIG one. We ended up in 5th. My son may have lost our big fish. He had a tank on, and in his excitement, he grabbed the reel to try and horse it in (as if it was a snag) and the fish busted loose. HAHA. Ah well, you have to learn some things the hard way.

A buddy and I also tried pulling cranks at night one night. We pulled until midnight without a sniff. I have some learning to do in this area, but it was fun and interesting. It was pitch black that night (no moon), so, not sure if that matters.

I was able to put my father in law on a 27" one of the days, so that was a huge bonus!
