My BFL season ended UGLY
« on: October 22, 2017, 09:05:30 PM »
 Fished as a co-angler at the BFL Regional on Barren River Thursday and Friday. The word for both days was "beyond  brutal". Day one I was in boat 157 which we had to be back in at 4:00. At 3:38 I catch my first and only keeper that day of a whooping 1.14. Day two is a little better I catch a 1.15 by 10:00 and 5 shorts the rest of the day. Not the way I wanted to end my season placing 73rd. 

 Saturday I had a choice to stay at the house or fish another tournament. To be honest it was a tough decision for me. I knew I would mope around the house and keep kicking myself on the past two days. I choose to fish the tournament with my partner. Instead of making an hour run to our home waters we choose to stay close and fish waters closer to the weigh in. The day started off with me catching a fish 1/4" short and that just plain hurt. My partner, by the way carries me a lot gets a keeper in the boat. I get short fish most the day and a drum. Partner get a 3.5 SM and another keeper in the boat. With a half hour to go I finally get a keeper in the boat and we end the day with almost 10 pounds and take 4th place on a tough day. 
 "What doesn't kill me only makes me stronger" is a quote that keeps going though my mind.

Well, Saturday didn't sound all that bad Joe. Keep swinging for the fences bud.

Congrats on 4th. ;)
