Ok the mystery item that must be included in the picture is a nice shiny penny. You can be holding the bass and the penny or you can put the bass on the ground next to a penny.

Remember, I have to judge which fish is the biggest. If I can't decide, all the active participants will vote.

Read the rules, have lots of fun, Catch some fish, and most importantly.....be safe.

Happy Labor day weekend folks! :D

Let the games Begin!

Man, Z-man caught a nice fish today at our weekly Tx, I took a pic for him, but the shiny penny was forgotten! Maybe he'll get out later today or tomorrow :)

I'm gonna add stick baits (senkos), as well as several new colors to the store in the next day or two, just in time for the winner, hopefully :)

Oh well. My weekend was shot. Got the boat ready last night, and this morning we went up to lake acworth - an electric only lake that spills over into Allatoona, the large reservoir right near here. Well, we get there, and they have all this festival stuff set up in the main park there. Okay, we can still use the ramp right? Well no. They have trucks parked halfway down the ramp. We start to untie our boat, to carry it to the water. The fellers setting up stuff there don't bother saying anything. Then, one guy who pulled in right behind us, went over and asked, and they said no boats on the lake all weekend. He came back and told us. The real annoying thing is, there is no sign, and the fellers working there didn't bother telling us, until the guy went over and asked.
Well, we can't leave the trailer there, and there isn't any bank access any where else on the lake, so we have to go home. There is no way we are putting a boat on Allatoona on a holiday weekend. To dangerous, and even with a bigger boat, there is so much commotion, it is pointless anyway. And, Allatoona has absolutely no bank access worth fishing. The only other alternative woulda been the river below Allatoona, but we wouldn't do that without the outboard, and a generation schedule.

I guess this means I am officially out of this tourney. Good luck to the rest of yall! Hope to see some lunkers brought in here.

Thank you, I added Coffee Bean just for you, sir. I forgot all about chart, bubble gum and a few others, though, need to go add those as well.

Don't worry, I remembered the penny! I wanted to get out again today but I was too exhausted.

Caught this one Sunday during a weekly tournament hosted by the club I fish with. Got it early on a wacky rigged custom senko, and man did it fight! Turned out to be a very trying day though.

I sprung a leak in the back of the boat, soon after I had put another fish in the livewell. I ran all the way back to the launch, taking on water. Fortunately, the bait shop at the lake had some epoxy. My boat was full of water, so I let that drain, set the epoxy and waited about 45 min. for the epoxy to dry. Finally tried to head back out and as soon as I dropped the boat in, another leak shot up like a little geyser! Unreal! I was ready to give up and let my fish go, but I checked the livewell and they were kickin. So, another package of epoxy and 40 minutes of dry time, I finally got back on the water. Didn't catch another fish all day!

Missed over 2 hours of prime time fishing, what a shame, especially since I had just found a few fish! But I stuck with it and at least kept my two fish alive. Finished 4th, out of 6. Not great but it was worth it to catch this fish, my biggest in a while. It went about 3.5, my two fish for the day went 4.4 on the club scale, (the second fish was only about 13", not really worth a picture!)

So, crazy day, also destroyed my transducer on a stump and cut the wire. Honestly, I'd do it all again tomorrow if I could!

Good luck everyone, hope all had better luck and safer trips on the water than I did!

I had an awesome day of fishing. Got out to the lake around 8. Caught the big one on a watermelon and black flake senko with a 1/0 hook. I couldn't believe how big he was when he broke the surface. It was a great fight. Caught the middle one on one of jimmy's green pumpkin senkos. Great worms jim. And caught the little one on live shiners AKA cheater bait says bassaddict1976. It just goes to show you can catch big fish from the shore.

Heres my entry for the tourney

Yup thats right the ole Addict got a huge goose egg, so instead I had to bask in the glow of shinermans monster catch, which was almost as enjoyable as catching it myself. However if he catches another monster before me im cutting his line before he lands it, just so I dont have to listen to him talk smack all day!!!!
