Cool.

I entered one fishing tournament put on by our VFW on our local river. Wasn't for me honestly, even tho I won more than it cost to enter.
Just wasn't fun fishing with pressure.

Nice. never have caught a smallmouth. Largemouth, all day long growing up in Florida. 7-9 pounders as common as flies. Nice catch. Sarge
