What a weekend!


Recommended Posts

The boys had 2 tournaments this weekend both on norfork, NEA trail and youth bass nation.  Saturday and Sunday were two different days, hot and still on Saturday and cooL cloudy and windy on Sunday.  The topwater bite wasn’t there Saturday but it was Sunday. Saturday was a tough bite for many and the boys were struggling to catch a 15 inch keeper.  But spots could be 12, so I coached them into chasing some spots to get some in the livewell.  We went to a point that we found some on earlier and they managed to get 2 13 inchers.  That bite stopped and after struggling To get another keeper with 20 minutes to Go landen wanted to Fish at the bridge.  With 10 or 15 minutes left he managed to catch a 2 pounder.  That turned out to be enough for first place.   Sunday was a different day with a great bite that morning, they managed 4th place in a larger field Sunday.  Those boys were on cloud 9.  There coach was happy to but needless to say I sure slept good Sunday night lol.  Fun times.  Bret

There's no such thing, as a bad day fishing!

This falls under the... do you know, but probably useless question.  With colleges having bass teams now.  Does cashing those checks affect future eligibility with a college team?  I assume no, but way back in the eighties, kids didn't take golf tournament checks so as not to risk it. 

With that craziness out of the way.  LET'S GO.  Nice job dad getting the next generation in the boat.

I don’t think so these days many of these senior high teams are trying to make it to colleges like Bethel and so forth, it’s a growing thing for sure.  
 

And thanks they are having a blast as am I.

Which Bethel? Bethel University in Chicago or Bethel College in Kansas?  My girl goes to BC.
