Fifth place for Doghouse and Randall

Recommended Posts

Doghouse and myself placed fifth at the JBAIT State Championship which is a tounament for the best small lake anglers in GA. We fished hard all day but in the end came up a little short losing one big fish that would have put us close to first that pulled away from me taking drag the whole way before the hooks pulled out on a rattle trap. We still placed fifth which isn't bad considering the tough competition we faced. We ended up with a little over 10 pounds on a tough day with post frontal conditions and Doghouse landed the nice 4.65 lb fish in the photo on a trap. Winners had eighteen pounds plus and second had 16 pounds plus. Second place team had a big 9.94 Hawg and also took home big fish. Most teams that did well were fishing a mix of soft plastics and rattle traps on shallow flats and thats what we did as well.

Way to go guys, who knows what would have happened if Randall hadn't lost the biggun'. That's fishin'!

You're both in 1st place as far as I'm concerned. Just the fact that DH is still here fishing with us after that heavy machinary incident. Randall, you've had a tough year in other ways and the fact that you have pushed on and found a way to cope is fantastic. Forget the trophies and the ribbons.

You're both huge winners here.

I think there were twenty teams invited. I think one team didnt make it because they broke an axle or something on the boat trailer.

Guest avid

this was a good story. I get tired about reading all the "great day on the lake stories".

I'm sorry you guys didn't do as well as you hoped, but i enjoy the "coulda done better stories"  they are honest and refreshing.  

Better luck next time
