You know, there was a saying in the Marine Corps the Old Timers used when ever us young bucks started getting frogy. 'Son there is a reason I am still alive'. Short, straight to the point, and I remember the feeling of awe and respect the first time I heard those words.
This week started out a lot like that. Fiery, passionate, young guns ready to fish our hearts out, while the cool calm seasoned old timers grinned with wisdom, walked very softly but carried the winning stick.
Other than the lake dropping a clean foot if not more, Hurricane Laura proved to not have much of an effect on the big waters at Guntersville. The predicted heavy rains in the morning never showed up, and the winds really wasn't that bad. The sky's parted later on and by lunch time the Sun was out. Jeff Greene, and Kyron Jones took the boat total weight 14.52 lb's, and reported culling several times through out the day. These guys proved that you can catch nice G'ville bass with a spinning rod and a ned-rig, all the way up swimming a worm on a bait caster. Top water and many other baits also proved to be part of their days catch.
Bill Kervaski and Sonny Burroughs brought in the biggest bass of the day weighing in at 5.55 lb's. Bill and Sonny put in some heavy work with a chatter-bait and it paid off in big dividends. Their biggest and final fish came in the last few minutes of the day, fishing a bridge in Spring Creek. Keeping their bait in the water to the very last minute to cap off a great day of fishing for these two well seasoned veterans and showing us why you never quit before its over.
Thanks to those guys for sharing with me their days report.
Congratulations to the Old man team! Great job to my fellow young team mates for working extremely hard pre-fishing, and communicating like a true team through out practice and game day. Very organized and full of competitors.
Old man team - 59.96 lb's
Young man team - 41.78 lb's
