My partner, Eddie Burke, and I just finished our first club tournament of the year at Van Buren. We had a good day in spite of the rain and a shorted out trolling motor plug. It got so hot, it melted the ground side of the plug. Had to run eight miles back downriver, get parts and tools and wire it up direct. But, we finished fifth out of nineteen boats. Got a trophy and enough money to buy our supper for us and our wives! We are only .85 out of first place in the points race after this first tournament. Next tournament is the His&Hers at Van Buren in two weeks. See ya there! Later, The Riverman
Current River Smallmouth Assoc. Fall Classic 10/11/14
My partner, Eddie Burke, and I fished the Current River Smallmouth Assoc. Fall Classic today. We had a Very Good day! We took first place overall with 14.27# and Big Bass with a 3.55#. It made for a very good payday! We fished seven tournaments this year, two firsts, a second, and a fourth place. We've had a good year!
Looking forward to next year. Angler of the Year, watch out here we come!
