Here's mine. We found several places that had fish on them last weekend out deep. We tried shallow for about 5 hours in practice and couldn't find anything at all consistent. So we stayed deep all day. Went to the first spot where they were stacked last week and they were just GONE! Second spot caught a 7 and lost another the same size. Big slots no unders like last week. Third spot is a brush pile but it has crappie guy on it. Fourth has two boats on it fifth has boats sixth has boats. Next is a bridge for some unders. Nothing there. Check crappie guy, he's still there. Back to first spot. Second spot and on goes the rotation. Finally crappie guys leave. We pull in my buddy has a big one on I get bit we have both poles doubled over, partner loses his, mine is a giant, that gets wrapped in the brush and breaks off. Get two more big ones on but lose them. Back to first spot with 15 minutes to go they finally show up, and we put two sevens in the boat befor time runs outs. Had over 25 pounds and no keepers. Sometimes when u go big or go home you just go home"

We caught probably 20-25 unders and a few slots. Had to weed through the 8-13" unders to weigh a decent bag.

That was probably about the best we could do on what we found, never found any good unders in practice.

We weighed in and were on the road home by 3:30...

Just don't understand why a tournament trail would ever have an event, where there's a slot! I know they get big turn outs, but just don't get it!

Trust me it does suck, we made the 5 hour drive last week to prefish and had two overs. Caught nothing but slot fish Saturday. Had fun fishing but it sure was tough to have 30lbs on your best five and not get to put anything in the live well but I'd do it again in a heart beat.

As embarrassing as it is to say, we did not catch a fish, not even a sand bass. The day started off with me forgetting my cell phone and sunglasses at home. Fished all day from Glade to the 2946 bridge, no fish. Ended the day with the transducer on my trolling motor busting off as I dropped my partner off at the dock. The bright side is that I was able to survive a day without my phone and I bought a nice pair of sunglasses from Oak Ridge. I commend those that caught fish and congratulations to the winners!

Caught more fish at Fork than I have at Ivie, it's been tough here for a month and besides seeing a lake that is full of water is awesome!!

Caught 3 22" fish by 8:30. All about 5 pounds each. It sucked having to throw them back. Caught a 13" fish at about 2 and that's it. Was tough for us.

We came into the event in 2nd in points so we were fired up to get after it and got to are hole about 5 am to guard are dinks. We had a limit by 6:45 that weighed about 3#s. We spent the rest of the day upgrading the sack to a whopping 5.89#s and had a few good slots along the way. Overall it was a beating . I agree I wish we didn't fish slot lakes for the series. I hate that you have to go into a tournament with the dink or swing for the fences for a over mentality. Unfortunately I'm sure Champs will be back next year and I will have to fish it. Congrats to the winners and AOY's!

Way past it's prime. It's still a great place to go have fun though.
