Worked for him no doubt.
Have made that mistake before early in the day, had been on real good fish previously and threw back 3-4 14" ers fist thing in the morning.
ended up only weighin in 3 fish 5, 4.5 and a 3 something. Missed a check by a pound.
Havent done that again.
I did throw a keeper away after it had been in the box a little while at another event. Was my 5th fish and it was like 1:00.
There had been some dq's for short fish previously and i had to turn it just right to get it to measure, i didn't want to take the chance of a GW stoping me before weigh in and not trying as hard as i did to measure, or have a board slightly off from mine so i chunked it.
Missed a check by ounces. But that was better than a short fish fine. I wasn't worried about him weighin short at the weigh in, just a GW. They were looking for short fish becasue of the DQ's the past couple of tourneis
