Almost Threw Away 1st Place (bass)
I fished the Yuma Rod & Gun Club bass derby yesterday. It was tough for me
on the river. I only got five bites all day long. I did put all five of
them in the boat, but only 2 were keepers.
On the way in I seriously considered pitching my fish and just going to see
what everybody else did. Since it was the first time I have fished with Rod
and Gun I went on and weighed my fish. Turns out everybody else had a tough
day too. In fact only one other angler weighed in 2 fish. Everybody else
had one or none. I never would have thought in a million years I would win
a competition with 2 fish for 3.68 pounds.
I was really expecting to see some bigger bags and bigger fish. The day
before in the Desert Bass tournament I skipped because I had not bought my
license yet there were several limits, and 2 toads brought to the scale.
One over 7 and one over 8.
Wow! Cool deal. Heck the only reason I considered even fishing it is
because Lannes Brock is running all the Yuma Rod & Gun bass events this
year, and I wanted to support my friend.
