Spent last week practicing for the bass weekend series that was this past Saturday and for trips that I have coming up. My buddy and I had been catching good ones all week on A-rigs. In The tournament I ended up in 12th place with 23 1/2 pounds and my buddy had 25 1/2 pounds and got 6th. Took 31 something to win and 31 something for 2nd. This was probably the most miserable tournament I had ever fished and for once it wasn't due to weather. I have been so sick that it took everything I had to sling that thing all day. The Fish we have been catching are anywhere between 8 to 14 feet of water and you never know when it will happen and all you do know is that you are in the general area. Waypoints are only as a reference to where you have had a bite.

I will be back out tomorrow and have open days if anyone wants to go. I am getting a later start to the season on doing guide trips but am ready to run everyday now and will soon be posting some pics of clients rather than just myself. If you have never had the luck with the a-rig like everyone else is having than now is the time to learn. A good example of this was on Saturday when my buddy and I were fishing in the same general areas and boats seen us catching fish and they all moved in but my buddy and I were the only two boats that caught them.

Good luck out there.
