15.0" Largemouth Bass caught by Henry V fishing on Saturday June 21, 2014 at 12:31

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 my third fish, which I caught because I had figured out how to fish near the large boulders in the lake. This one jumped so high it would have cleared a boulder that was stocking out of the water by about 2 feet.

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.
