Last night(this evening) I got to fish my first Mariner Sails Working Mans event of the year and boy am I glad I did! It was a little windier than I'd like out there but it was only three and a half hours of fishing on a lake I know pretty well, so "what the hell". The evening started pretty slow on my favorite spot, so I did what everyone does and beat the bank looking for a small limit. I caught my first fish shallow on a TX-rigged craw(14.75),then my second(14") on a trap, third (10")on a Bass Pro Stick-o, and fourth(10") on a Bass Pro Speed shad. To say I was killing it was definitely an overstatement...

The wind was persistent but I knew I only needed one last fish for a small limit. The last hour of the tournament I went to an area I've fished dozens of times. I knew where some off shore structure was so I set-up casting upwind to hold my position. It didn't take five minutes and I felt a tick in my line. I gave the bass a quick second before I drove the hook home in what was soon to be my biggest bass (officially) in North Texas. After a pretty decent battle at the boat and me screaming that I had a MONSTER to some of the other kayakers, the short battle was over and she was mine, a 24.75" 10.47lbs. Marine Creek beauty....(thanks for the scale NINJA!!)

Photo cred goes to Bryan, thanks bud thumb (if anyone else snapped some pics please PM them to me if you don't mind)

I ended up taking 1st and Big Bass, Thanks to Bryan Row, Jason Delfraise, Duc Tran(even though he was absent), Aris Tsamis, and everyone responsible for putting on these events! They sure are a great way to get out and grow the sport!

WOW!!!! Any time you catch a DD this time of year it a real accomplishment. I didn't know Marine Creek had that quality of fish in it and now that is the second one caught in a couple months. All I can say is WOW! Congrats to you.

Awesome man. And another pic of a LEGIT 10 lber. That fish looks HUGE dude. If you had told me it weighed 12 I'd believe it.
