My 30-plus years of tournament and guiding experience have made it possible for you to have a fun day of fishing.”

Another 30 smallies today as Chuck and Marty elude stormy weather. Yesterday, Chuck's personal best was actually 6.18 and today, Marty gets a personal best of 4.46 and then raised the mark to 4.76 on the last cast of the day. We got out just ahead of the rain.
80 smallmouth in two days...lots more pics but no room. Chuck's biggie shown again.

We wanted south winds and that is what we had.
