A Day in the Life of a Tournament Bass Fisherman; Pomme de Terre, Oct 13th,2018
Hi, my name is Randy Yancey!
I’m a lot of things,
I’m a father of 3 a grampa of 3, soon to be 4, a bass fishing fool for over 50 years, and a tournament bass fisherman!
As a long time club and tournament bass fisherman, many of you know that some trips you catch a lot of fish but not many bigger ones.
And, sometimes you catch just a few fish and they’re are all pretty good sized, just not enough of them.
Then there are the days you catch a good amount of both!
Saturday, October 13th was one of those days the fish bit good, but out of a dozen or more, only 4 keepers and nothing bigger than a couple pounds.
This was day 1 of the Tri County Bass Clubs season championship out of Nemo park at Pomme de Terre lake!
Lots of the guys had zero keepers, and my limit of 4 ended up being the fifth heaviest bag of 17-18 fisherman who took off at 7 am!
From 7 until 10, I had all 4 keepers in the boat and had lost the biggest fish of the day probably, when it hung my crankbait on a stickup.
I caught almost all my fish on one of two of my
#13fishing reels and all were caught on a #Rapala DT6 crankbait, in either ‘mule’ color or ‘chart/green’ back color.
Most were caught between docks, rather shallow in ‘one’ cove north of Nemo bridge!
