Awesome! That was a fun lake! Best lake I went to this season for numbers by far but well down the list for size!! Fork next month i figure will take 25 pounds to win over 2 days if the weather cooperates! I just hope to be somewhere near the top.

I'm guessing in D1 it's gonna take 24-25 pounds to make the top 5 in 2 days and would think 26-27 to win but I could be wrong! D2 I figure 22-23 pounds will win it! I need that 1.38 to be a 1.78! Maybe then I would have a shot!!

Lol! I'm in trouble then! Heck my kid wanted to go to school tomorrow. Finally came around and he's fishing. Made 100 on his spelling test today and qualified with a win on Palestine. Need him to be our good luck charm one more time!!

No. Lowrance Carbon 12s and 9s and helix 9 running the 360 on the Ultrex. Ranger cup package came with the carbons and I've ran lowrance by whole life so wasn't an issue. Buying new no experience with either the Mega is cats meow today.

Go to church and get momma a new washing machine with some tourney money. Man the big girls are chomping now. Go get em! We had 5 over 2 pounds last 2 days and lost one prefishing pushing 3. Good times!

18-20'. Depends on the lake though. Fork they're shallower than that.

I saw a huge buck chasing a doe on the side of 20 on the way home! But the lakes 20 miles and the deer lease is 400 so fishing it is!!!
