The child in me wants to say “NO….LEAVE ME ALONE!” so I don’t have to talk about the first tourney of 2019. The KBF Tenvitational sponsored by Dee Zee.
And technically, I don’t have to share at all….I do control the typing after all…but, I am not six…and I can’t pretend I wasn’t here…
Bienville….day one….well day two, but it ended much like day one; not skunked, but not catching enough fish!
So I left the Senkos in the truck to avoid the crappie bite from day one….rigged all of my rods with baits I do not typically use because yesterday did not go well….and pedaled off to explore all of Lake 14.
I did intentionally leave one area alone, because I didn’t want to crowd the leader.
7:30; caught a 15 inch bass on a Mann’s Classic spinnerbait.
2:00; caught a 6 inch bass on a Texas rigged Zoom trick worm in black.
2:15ish; caught a 14 inch bass on a Texas rigged Zoom trick worm in black.
I watched guys all day catching fish with the techniques (and baits) that had failed me the day before. Baits that were resting in the back seat of my truck because I wanted to try something different!
The end. I haven’t looked to see where I finished…I am sure I will know one day, but for now I am going to cover my head and lick my wounds….
…..the upside to it all…..
I still have the next two days left to fish with hope that I catch the biggest bass of the day on an incredible fishery; Bienville Plantation.
Many folks hear about, and dream of fishing this place; I can now say that I have!
Thanks to KBF , Chad Hoover and team (Amanda Brannon, Richard Penny)…for a great tourney….I have spent the last two days fishing with and against the best. Anglers I consider my friends and family because of this organization.
If y’all haven’t been to a KBF event, come on out. Feels like it is going to be a big year!
