Well today was one of those days...We had our WRL tournament out of Russo's and considering the cold/rain front moved out on Friday we thought today would be GREAT!!
Well we hit our first spot and nadda..Second spot 1 small keeper, maybe 1 lb. Third spot my partner lands another small keeper but better than the first this one about 2 lbs. Since our first three spots were close we had 2 fish in the boat by about 8:30-9. Things were looking pretty good, so we thought. So for the next 5 hours or so we tried it all at mulitple spots for nothing. Then with about an hour left in our day, my partner landed a nice fish that went 5.82. So we go to weigh in thinking 3 fish, this bites, only to find out that our 3 fish had us in third place
Appaerntly our tough day was not isolated, at the end of the day only 4 teams weighed limits and we ended up finishing 7th out of 96 teams. So all in all I guess it was not as bad as we were thinking it was.....So as were heading home we stop for a quick bite at the BK there at 5 and 12 as were leaving we see the yellow machine of Mr. Reese pull up to get gas at the truck stop. We went over said hey and gave our condolences for the 1 ounce deal. He was not happy!! I said well at least you got second and his reply was "Second Sucks"
Well I guess having that drive is what makes him one of the greats, kudos to him for a great 4 days even if it was one ounce short.
