The BFL Super Tournament is over...

The Illini Division super tournament is over.  I finished somewhere in the mid-forties.  I could give you a laundry list of reasons, but all boils down to this:  if you don't figure out what the fish are doing, it makes it very difficult to be successful.  I had practiced a day and a half for this event, and actually thought I had an idea of how to catch a few.  I thought I could catch 8-9 lbs if everything went right. Unfortunately, things didn't go as planned.  The river rose an additional 6-12 inches overnight, which I believe repositioned the fish I was targeting.  Regardless, I finished the event with three fish for 3lbs - 15oz.  I did however finish the year in 17th place overall, which qualifies me to fish in the BFL regional on Barkley Lake next week.  I'm looking forward to this tournament.  I like Barkley Lake, it should be a good event.  I'll keep you posted on my practice.
God Bless,
