I haven't seen the full results, but pretty sure B&B were third.

We captured third place. Really a great day for us, as far as numbers. Only better day we have had was with the spoon, and I think that one was last December, that number was unbelieveabe.

19 keepers and about 35 fish for us on Saturday. Just could not turn up with a big bite, or we might have had a bag. Our's was 16.59. Limit included a 4.5 pound toad K that Billy caught just 10 minutes before weigh-in. That fish was an absolute PIG. I can just imagine what that 7 plus pounder looked like in person. We had a very nice Jaw and LM to go with it, but had to weigh a couple of K's. You can get buy with one 16.5 incher at 2.5 sometimes, but you will not win many derby's with 2. They were very nice fish, but just were not derby winners.

We had a limit by 8:30, but nothing large. At 8:45 we pulled onto a big fish location, and before I could cast Bill stared putting Keeps in the boat. I am going to tell you I was sweating lik a pig, trying to weigh-cull-and net. We had so many K's that balanced out just even that it was ridiculas. He had to slow down and catch them slow so I could maintain no more than 5 fish in the boat. "What a Problem." :blink: He was working his little fat buddy so hard, he said I looked like a squirrel buring nuts. :touched:

I was culling so fast that I threw back one of our keepers, and had culled down to 4 fish. "I looked at Beck and said you will not believe what I just did." I said, "I threw one of our 2.5 pound K's back and now we only have 4 fish." :blur: I had thrown back a 1 eyed K that we had caught on a previous spot, that we both had been saying just was not very pretty and we needed to get rid of. I guess I took that literaly, and just got rid of it. :noway: What a dope.

He turned and looked at me, and said, "If we needed that K, it won't make a difference anyway, Who Cares." B) "Oh! by the way here is another one." :D Is this a great Partner or what? We are a very good team. Our great friendship outweighs anything in the competition. We are Boy's that just like to have fun.

Indeed, it didn't matter, but made me mad that I coud have been that careless. Of course I blamed it on him for going nuts and making me do all the work, swinging all those fish in the boat. Paybacks are a commin Mr.

Great day on the water with my Buddy and a pretty good check to boot. By the way we were big winners in the side pot again. That is 2 side pot wins and 1 side pot second. That is keeping the steaks flowing from Harter House.

Everyone will have to follow the exploites of Dumb and Dumber. We may be old, but we still have fun.

Good Luck out there.

Congrates to two great guys and two great fisherman!!! That action is what fishing is all about. If I have one or two days a year like that, I feel blessed. Keep up the good work on the water as well as your reports. It's nice to hear about that kind of action to get a guy pumped up.

Bill that was a nice bag of fish. We finished 4th and had the big bass of the day. We didnt catch near as many as you all did but stumbled onto a good spot and a big one that produced a respectable bag. We had 8 keepers all day and about 5 short fish. We caught em on the stickbait and the bite really died for us after about 10:30. Threw the grub later in the day but had no success. The lake is really fixing to blow open and I am amazed at how many 7 plus lb fish have been weighed in between anglers in action and central pro-am.

How big was that Big Girl? She was just about as well colored up and pretty fish as you will see. She looked like a Clearwater MaMa for sure. Great job on your catch. You all were just the oppsite from us. You needed a 3.5 or two and we needed that Big Gal.

Thanks for the report and great luck on the water.

"Our great friendship outweighs anything in the competition." You said a mouthful there, Bill. I've yet to come home from a day of fishing with my partner and wished I'd stayed home, regardless of how badly we fished or how much money we spent. And she's a heckuva lot better looking than Beck. :lol:

Bill,

She weighed 7.85 and she was just a butterball. I would have swore that she would weigh 8 or 9 pounds when we got her in the boat. I caught a 7.34 last year on Table Rock and this fish made it look small. This lake is really producing quite a few 7 and 8 pounders in recent tournaments and I really think it is only going to get better.

Good luck out and thanks for all the Information you put on here.
