Team NLFF, came in second place and in the money! I do have to say that Erik Dilts handled most of the down-n-dirty catching, to place us, though.  At Lake Fork any fish over 16"-24" must be released immediately and you can only keep one fish over 24".  so the strategy is to put get 5 fish below, but as close to the 16" mark as possible.  Before I could land my first counting fish, Erik had placed 5 in the live well.  Finally after we starting culling I got one in to bump one of his.  We had tons of fun, had a lot of action and caught fish, lost fish and had to release fish that werer in the slot.  We released three in the 20" range and lost a really BIG Bucket Mouth that broke the 14# tippet with ease.  Erik also placed in the largest bass category and caught the largest Bream, to collect the Big Bream Pot.  Can't wait till next year.  Erik's "Super Popper" was the ticket.  I'll bet he makes me finally learn to tie poppers.

AD and TJ, I'm tellin' ya, there was plenty of action to keep the whole fishing trip interesting.  After the weigh-in there was the casting accuracy games, the long distance casting games and lastly there were  drawings for door prizes and early registeration drawing.  Plenty of fun for the buck.  Heck I won a TFO 9' 4 pc 8wt Professional II rod w/reel, line, and backing.  The thing is......if we had not won any money, rods, reels, caps, buffs, flies or any of that stuff, it still would have been a great fishing trip!  That's how much fun this year's tournament was.  Heck Erik and I are making plans for next year already.
