CLEARLAKE ABA TOURNY 3/7 NIGHTMARE!!

WHAT A DAY OF FISHING!!! STARTED OUT WITH A QUICK SMALL LIMIT THEN CAME SOME BIG ONES 6.98 ON A CRANKBAIT. WE CULLED ALL OF ARE SMALLER FISH FOR A TOTAL OF AROUND 20.2#. HERE COMES THE BAD NEWS WITH 20 MIN LEFT IN THE TOURNY I ASKED WILL TO LOOK AT OUR FISH AND SEE HOW THEY WERE DOIN. WELL THERE WAS ONLY FOUR FISH IN THE LIVE WELL. THINKIN THIS WHOLE TIME WE HAD FIVE. WE WERE PISSED!!!!! A FEW F BOMBS CAME AND THE PEOPLE AT THE DOCK LOOKED AT ME ALL CRAZY. WE CAUGHTY OVER 15 FISH AND WERE LETTING GO 3#S THINKING THE SMALLEST FISH IN OUR BAG WAS 3.8. SO IN THE LAST TWENTY MIN WE COULDNT GET THE FIFTH FISH IN AND HAD TO ONLY WEIGH IN FOUR. A FISHERMANS NIGHT MARE WENT FROM A GOOD HIGH TO THE ULTIMATE LOW. SO WE GET TO THE WEIGH IN AND FOUND OUT THAT WE WOULD OF HAD 4TH PLACE. ONLY THREE SCKS IN THE 20# RANGE WE WOULD OF BEEN THE FOURTH,HEARTBREAKER. DONT KNOW HOW IT HAPPENED. }:( }:( . I GUESS I NEED TO GO BACK TO ELEMENTRY!!!!!WELL THE GOOD NEWS IS I DID CATCH THE BIG FISH OF THE TOURNEY FOR A TOTAL OF $1,040. AND A COOL PLAQUE.................. NEVER DO THAT AGAIN STILL IN PAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
4th place is better than no place :D
