Default Stren Angler of the Year, Finally!!

Finally I got it. After losing last year coming in second by 2 points, and taking 2nd two years ago I couldn't handle another second place finish. Today I struggled so bad, I really thought I gave it away. I honestly barely skated in there, so I was really lucky.

It's a good thing for me Robert Lee, Mike Tuck and myself all had our worst finishes of the year today.

To think of my name up there with Brent Ehrler, Jimmy Reese, Robert Lee (all former Stren Angler's of the Year) really amazes me. It really is an honor to be mentioned with these guys.

As for the fishing - it was obviously really tough. I had two 3-3.5 pound fish come unbuttoned first thing this morning. I also had several fish come unbuttoned while punching. I really felt like I was trying to give the AOY away! I caught my first fish at 11:00 this morning, after losing 4 decent fish which any one of would have been my biggest fish of the day. I was getting worried because I had a 2:30 weigh in. Once I picked up the right bait, I was able to put a limit in the boat pretty quick. I will tell you the bait later, I don't want to effect tomorrows event.

The bad news is, I missed a check. This is the first time in 2 years of Stren events that I missed a check. I'll take the AOY over the check for this event anytime, but I definitely should have got a check today, but, that's fishing.

Thanks to CalBassin for giving me the opportunity to share my experiences with everyone, Monster Fishing for overnighting me some baits, Jackall for the flickshake worms which has been a key bait for me at every tournament this year. Thanks To Powell rods and Keith Bryan for all the support. Most importantly thanks to my wife Kari, and my family for all the support throught the years. Also, thanks to my travelling partners Aaron Reitz and J.R. Wright, you guys make it fun out here on the road.

Next stop is Columbia River for the National Guard in late June. I am excited about this event because I love catching smallies, its supposed to be a great time of the year for the river. I hear there will be some 20 pound bags of smallies, go figure 20 pound bags on the Columbia River and 10 lb bags on the Delta, what a great sport we enjoy!

Time for some sleep,
Cody

Reaper-
The bait was a Jackall 6.8 Greenpumpkin Candy Flicke Shake on a 1/16 wacky jighead. I never had a big bite on it, but you can catch a lot of 2-3 pounders on it.
