Great fun, had a blast. Didn't finish where I wanted to but thats fishing. The second place team ran a small boat to pelican and pushed it over the old 281 with 2 x 4's. Totally legal as the rules are any waters of the lake accessible by boat from the Grahms launch with out touching shore.
I saw the spot they crossed, local knowledge is tough to beat.
I pushed the shallow bite and fell back on rigging for my plan B. On my second day I found fish stacked on a point in 25 FOW. We lead cored them and tried to slow death them. Only pulled small fish ( the story of my prefish ) Until...... I ripped a Shiver minnow through them.
Second day of the tourney we didn't have a fish in the box until 2:00. We found the point fish and caught at least 20 fish in 30 min. it was nuts. When my partner netted my 5.05 # big fish I almost soiled myself.
I believe the tourney was won off deep transitions ROCK I bet 3K worth of jigging raps were left in the lake by 76 teams.
I will fish another MWC I had fun, the Devil is a great lake that always has a secret.
Congrats to Troy and Corey !! What a day they had first day, they were back at the ramp at 10:00 AM too. I am very excited to see the video they have from the event.
White bass are going nuts we boated more than 30 during the tourney and the pike were not too terrible but did provide some carnage.
Broke 3 rods and lost a shipload of gear.
Thanks for the support guys !!!!
