2009 FLW/TBF Virginia state championship

Recommended Posts

At 7:00am yesterday morning 17 boats left Osborne Landing on the James River with 2 anglers to each boat. I had high expectations for this tournament because the week before I had been locating some really good fish in practice and this was my fourth consecutive state appearance so I was pretty anxious to get out there and see if I could pull off the win this year.  

I caught my first keeper on a bronzeye frog not 10 minutes after I pulled up to my first spot, but they were about 10-12 boats in there as well so we left after about 30 minutes. After that it was like one of those days you dream of, every spot we hit produced big time and every decision we made was the right one. Between my partner and me, we caught around 12 keepers (all 1.5+lbs) which is an excellent day on the James. I managed to cull out a 4 fish limit which came in at 9.55lbs. The next closest angler had 8.84lbs, so I WON!!!!  

Now I get to take an all-expenses paid 5 day trip to the 3 rivers in Pittsburgh in august for the national tournament! I can honestly say I have never had a better day on the water than yesterday and I have never been more pumped up for a tournament.  :)

Also, I need to thank my buddy Conner and his dad Chris for helping me tremendously all these years and to Nick, who missed winning his age division by 1/100th of an ounce; and thanks to all here at Bassresource!

Super.  Outstanding.  Fantastic.  Great.  Wonderful.

Congratulations.

Could not have happened to a more worthy guy.

Now we have you and Tanner as our top state fishermen, Tanner with the 13-14 age group in his tournament and you with the older guys in Virginia.

Good luck in August.  :)   :)   :)
