Tournament Action:

Tournament Day 1 Tournament Day 2
Very windy and challenging! MY 2100 Raptor kept us comfortable and safe. Turning in a 11.82 lb bag of fish which included a 27.5 in tank. Finishing day 1 in 15th place. Fast and furious boating over 75 fish in the first 3 hrs of fishing, to many double headers to count. Rounding out the bag of fish with a 29.5 Walleye at 11:45am we called it a day and went to weigh in. 13.11 lbs for the day gave us a 2 day weight is 24.93 lbs.

A big thanks to Crestliner Boats for building such a fantastic fishing machine. Also a big thanks to Rond’s Marine for keeping him on the water day in and day out. Last but not least thanks to my fishing partner (his wife Nancie) for toughing out 5 days of fishing with 4:30am alarms, sun, humidity, intense heat, thunder and lightning. She never put her rod down once fishing with heart and intensity. Somebody is going shopping for jewelry !! XOXO
