Whew! Man that was tough. We stunk on Saturday but my partner with just a few minutes left caught a 4 that allowed us to go for a check on Sunday. Lost 3 fish that would have really helped. On Sunday we got 5 bites and put them in the boat. It was a valiant effort but we fell .08 of a pound from getting a check. Had a blast though glad the hurricane missed us! Louisiana is a strange place had a guy at a tackle store tell us to take our masks off! Lol how did you guys do?

No one wears mask here anymore. That storm messed it up as all us locals where figuring a 20lb bag or 2 would of been caught. Prefishing before cutoff was pretty good size wise

20lb bag on the red? Has it really rebounded that good?

U can do it but it’s a lot of running and gunning to get it done. The fish are making a come back as they have been trying stock it again. Tons of little fish back in the river system.

Well, started off practice Wednesday by dropping a cylinder about 40 miles south of the marina. Luckily we brought a small aluminum boat with us. Really wasn’t able to find anything with fish that big boats couldn’t get in. Had one good practice day. Had 7 something the first day culling twice. Second day had two large grinnel, two magnum sand bass, couple dozen rats and one keeper. Tough weekend.

This one stings a bit. We had some really good bites in practice and just couldn't land them during the tournament. Can't lose 6-7 keepers a day and be competitive. It was a fun experience overall. First time being on the river now I know what to look for to save a lot of time fishing dead water. Only got the boat stuck twice in practice and didn't tear anything up so that was good. Caught a gator on a frog on accident. Those suckers are quicker than you'd think. Didn't lose much at the casino. Would gladly go back.

Edit: forgot to add I had what I assume was an Asian carp jump up through my jackplate, onto the back deck, and back into the water. Scared the living you know what out of us. Thing was probably 20 pounds.

We brought 2 boats, practice was good for me all 3 days. Caught 3 keepers and made 20 mile run. At the first stop 2nd flip caught one about 3.75, that fish was never stuck, as the hook barely penetrated the bait, talk about luck, 3 min later caught #5. Had our limit at 11:44. Made a move across the way and culled 4 times by 12:25. Partner wanted to keep fishing and I said no, 5 fish the next day will be crucial. Finished day 1 in 19th with 11.02. I had Fuel Filter issues so we used his boat on day 2 and started were we finished. Had our limit by 9:44 and culled 6 times to end with 11.46 and that allowed us to jump 12 spots and end up 7th overall. Been on the RR all of their championships and all 5 days this trip was by far were better than any of the prior visits and I am not talking about the finish, just getting the bites. Congrats to the winners and 2nd place as well, no both teams and they are sticks for sure.

I love that place, didn't fish well at all myself so no excuses for a poor showing but I really enjoy it there so I will be making regular trips down to learn.

Not sure about a team sitting in 3rd getting DQ'd but I do know of a guy who had his day one catch DQ'd for nearly killing a few people and pissing off a bunch of others as he ran into a back water on pad while everyone else was single file idling.

Where was this Dale ? I run everywhere I can but usually shut down when encountering others.

I did run the fake no wake zone in 12 mile yesterday while guys were idling there.

The team in second got a call from the TD on day two questioning whether the area they trailered to was accessible from the main river. He said he did access it in practice. Also said he only had one fish so he told the TD to zero his weight so he wouldn't take a chance being DQed.
