The second morning my early bite died and I was able to salvage my day with a small limit up the river. After falling from 5th to 13th I really felt blessed to be in my second top 20 in a row.
The third day was probably the best day of my career to this point. I really can't explain why everything went so good on that day but I know that my Lord and savior Jesus Christ was looking down on me and blessed me beyond belief that day. Every move I made seemed to be the right one. I started down the lake and caught a good one in the first 5 minutes. Then went back up the lake and proceeded to catch 4 more big bass on that day. After a two day total of around 23 lbs I sacked up 19 lb 11 oz on day three a jumped into the lead.
Day four went pretty good but I just never got the bite I needed to win. I caught more fish on day four than any of the others but just did not get that quality bite that I needed to get my first tour win.
I have really been blessed and just pray that I can continue to keep getting in contention to get a win because I know that in due time it will come.
My baits payed off for me this week included and umbrella rig (swim frenzy mini), a Bow Stick from Jackall lures and a 1/2 oz jig from Dirty Jigs Tackle. Swim baits on the rig were 4 in Berkley Hollow bellies.
As soon as I left Beaver Lake I headed straight to Guntersville for the last Everstart Southeastern tournament. I am now at Old Hickory Lake for the first PAA Series tournament and will leave straight from here to go to the Potomac River FLW tournament. It has been a crazy month, but that is the life of a professional fisherman.
