Steve Kennedy:  I probably got about ten pounds.

Interviewer:  Yeah.

Steve:  I don't know.  I caught more fish then I caught yesterday but I never got a good bite.

Interviewer:  What were the advantages of that boat this week?

Steve:  None.  None at all.  I didn't tear up my other boat.  The water has come up about six inches and some of those places that I couldn't get into or maybe I wasn't willing to get into, I was able to get in there but so did a couple of the other guys.  I mean they're not big enough areas to really help you if you don't have them to yourself.

Interviewer:  Right.

Steve:  I can't say I would have done any better in my other boat.  It was fun.  I enjoyed it because you can jumping those stumps and you don't have to worry about cracking anything.  Yeah, those guys watched me run those stump fields and I'm bouncing back and forth.

Interviewer:  Yeah, I'm a tin boat fan.

Steve:  It was entertaining anyway.  And that didn't even put a scratch on it.

Interviewer:  What kind of prop does it have on it?

Steve:  It's a Powerton.  They make them right here in town.  I had one on my 50 horse and I wanted one.  I just bought it just two days ago just for this tournament.  It'll actually stay hooked up jacked up all the way like that.  It won't even get water to it if you get the throttle down but anyway when I got it and I saw these blades and how stout they were I was pretty excited.  I hit some stumps running on plane today and I didn't even ding it.  I mean I hit several and I plowed up a log jam going through it and I didn't put a scratch on it.
