Disappointed *sigh*

Recommended Posts

Well my partner Pete and I were in a tournament last weekend... and unfortunately because NY State states that the bass have to be 20" made our day quite frustrating  :o  All the bass we were catching were nice weights, healthy fish but 3/4 - 1/2" short of the length requirement!!  And just when I thought I hooked a nice fat bass, turned out to be a walleye  ::)

Here are some pictures ...

Nice pics. Nice fish!! I know it can be heartbreaking. One of the tournament waters I fish here in Illinois has a 14" lake limit, and there are lots and lots of 13 3/4" fish it seems!!! Keep on castin!!! ;)

Thank you... Yes it was truly heartbreaking to let some of those fish go ... the wind picked up shortly after the tourney started... so when we got a bite our hearts would race... *sigh*

Well we will get them in our next tourney!!

Wow a 20" length limit is pretty stiff!  Those two bass would be kickers in most everyone elses bag.  Tough Luck but looks like ya'll are on the right path.  I bet that smallmouth was fun though!  :)

Yeah the 20" length is dreaded... but thankfully it's only until the end of June...

That small mouth was a blast to bring in... huge smile on my face!!  We always have a running bet who's gonna catch the first fish of the day... that lil girl got me a nice dinner that night ( i should say we didn't have bass for dinner, lol we went out!)
