Hey everyone, just thought I'd share a story of one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made in fishing. Losing this tournament was one of the hardest things to accept because my 3 second lapse of judgement is what caused it. If you've ever had something like this happen, please leave a comment on this thread and tell your story too! I'm still in shock that I let this happen... Anyways, here's my story:

Moritz Chevrolet - 9101 Camp Bowie W Blvd, Fort Worth, TX - Monte Coon (817) 696-2003

To tell the story, buddy. That's the whole point of this video. Sure, I don't have footage, but I still want to share my experiences.

Too many disgruntled jerks on this forum. I feel your pain, Miller. I made a boneheaded mistake in February with a fish that would have won the tournament and big bass because I let said fish dog me in “open water” only for it to find another stump that I couldn’t see and it break me off. Lesson learned; get the fish in the boat, preferably in the cockpit area. Lol
