First Tournament Of The Year, Or Was It?

Recommended Posts

So I've been practicing for these Friday night tournaments at Lake Purdy since October. The sheer excitement of them finally being here was unbearable. All week I had been making the mental preparations to fish this competition. My usual partner had to work and wouldn't be able to fish it with me. He had told me this two weeks in advance. Thursday night, the evening prior to the tourney, my brother in law, who happens to be my back up partner for these tournaments, calls me up and bails on me. He tells me He has a paper due in one of hiatus classes and can't fish with me. WTH he has known about this for the two weeks since he agreed to fish this with me. I completely flipped on him and basically told him he will never fish competitively with me again. Couldn't find anyone else to fish with in under 24 hours notice and missed the tournament. Thank God my regular partner will be back with me this week. Hopefully we can dominate the rest of the tournaments to make up for this last crummy week.

Unfortunately no. I had to have a second because it is a team tournament. I even tried to get someone to just sit in the boat with me while I fished it. And they wouldn't let me enter my two year old as my partner. Granted I would have been watching him more then actually fishing. But that's how desperate I was. Heck I even asked if I could enter my dog. She has caught a fish before. To this I was told that it has to be a human partner, regardless of how good a fisher my dog is.

Those are some odd rules. As long as the TX entry fee is paid in full it shouldn't matter.
