I've had great luck on March 18 every year. This year almost back to back cast I pulled these 2 out. I've got a couple 12s and a 14+ pounder under my belt as well. Absolutely love spring time bass fishing! I hear the fall is a great time also but I'm busy chasing deer!

Neither were caught on purpose but caught none the less. 11.24 and 10 something. Don't remember on that one.

Yes!

For fun and only the cheap tournaments, though.
Competing against guys who have $5k setups and 12" sonar units isn't fun.

I still think there is a market in Austin for poor man tournaments with the right format.

Back home we had a Monday night tournament. Every Monday, same lake.
$25 per fisherman. You racked up points each week. 1st, 2nd, 3rd were only paid the entry fee back as well as big bass each week. Payout came at the end of season. This encouraged people to come back and not miss weeks.
Last year I fished payout was around $15k with some left over for the invitational.

I fished for Reds in the bay last year with my yak and ultralight rod. Most fun I have ever had fishing. Slept in the truck all weekend. Caught 28 reds total with 3 being over 25". It was a blast!

Back many years ago when I was still in college. Weighed a little over 14 1/2 pounds. It was 18th in the state when I caught her and was able to put her in the Lunker program.

Quite possibly. I've learned a lot about fishing this lake in the past few years. This lake can be super frustrating as I'm sure you know. I don't get time to go anywhere else so I'm just used to it. I've had several tournaments humble me just like TTT did all my friends this year. We were on the same fish, they had earlier boat numbers. I got in the area and saw how many boats were in there and knew I couldn't beat them fishing behind some of the best guys on the lake so I scrambled and just started running historically good spots, lots of spot on a spot deals and it just worked out.

If anybody wants a piece of that luck my boat will be for sale as soon as it gets back from having the trailer refinished and the seats recovered. 2004 Bullet 21xd 2004 250xs, 2- Hbird 998 and the must have Minn Kota Ultrex. Only selling because I won a boat in one of the tournaments listed above and selling it and this one is allowing me to get a newer boat debt free. This one still runs like a scalded ape and looks good doing it.

8 lbs. 13 oz. on a fly rod. Beats the state record for fly rod by 8 oz. but I couldn't stand to kill it just to get a record.

Caught the nice bass and noticed the tiny bass's tail fin sticking out of big bass's throat while I was removing the hook. Pulled out the tiny bass and he was still alive......pretty cool
