16.5 in. Largemouth Bass caught by Henry V fishing in North Carolina on 06/21/14
16.5" Largemouth Bass caught by Henry V fishing on Saturday June 21, 2014 at 12:25 near New London in Stanly County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America

I fished the Carolina Kayak Anglers event on Saturday, the 4th tournament of their season. I had a feeling Saturday would be my breakthrough event, and it nearly was, because conditions were perfect and I had a great game plan.

Sure enough, I was hooking fish right off the bat. This was the first fish. It was just one of those mornings where every cast is perfect, every decision confident, and every fish a good fight. The problem was that I kept losing my bigger fish. I hooked 8 in the morning, and lost the three best ones. One of those three was a monster, too.

I finished the day with a 46.5" bag with my 3-fish limit. I took 4th place, and missed 3rd place - and the money - by a lousy quarter inch.
If I had landed one of the three that spit my hook, I would have had second, at the least, and all three of the big fish would have secured me first place.

Regardless, it was a good day, and made a good showing despite the fact that the fish got the better of me. I left with a nice gift bag full of lures, and washed the bitter taste out of my mouth with a tasty dinner and a cold beer.

It's not about the winning! It's about the game and the story that follows! You did good!

Thanks, Joe! Kayak fishing has become extremely popular down here, and a big business to boot.
