CWA Jumbo Tournament

Went to Jumbo for four days for the CWA tourney. Got on the water around noon on Thursday and just decided to troll around the whole lake to get a feel for it. I had only fished it once before. After about 50 dink walleye's i decided trolling cranks was out! Same thing had happened to me last year. So on Friday I decided to go shallow (five feet or less in the weeds and just bass fish. My best five fish were from 20-22 inches, so I knew what to do Saturday when it counted.

Saturday I caught about 20 fish shallow and the five I weighed in gave me 12.3 lbs which was good enough for second place. Day two i got a skinny 18" eye on my second cast and that was my last keeper of the day??? I jumped from weed bed to weed bed hoping to bump a group of big fish to no avail. I hooked one about noon that looked really nice, but she pulled off at the boat. After that I moved out into the channel to pull live bait for the last two hours and caught probably 20 fish but they were all 13-14.5 inches:mad:

Any way it was fun weekend and I got a good check for 2nd place the first day. I just wish my pattern would of held for one more day.
