Catch-Up Post – Fall Fish Slaying

I’ve been really bad about posting to the blog lately.  I have a few minutes right now, so I figured I’d let you in on a few trips I had this fall.

September 18 – Went for a few hours on the Haw near my house.  Caught 7 bass and missed a few others.  Best one was just under 5 lbs.  All fish came on a Confidence Baits Draggin’ Head/Zoom Ol’ Monster combo.

September 24 – I finally got a little revenge on the TKAA tourney up in Virginia Beach.  Finished in 4th place in the flounder division with a 20.25″ fish.  Good buddy and Nacho Fish teammate Scott Inge won the speckled trout division with a 20.75″er.  The Fort Bragg chapter won the Heroes on the Water division with a little under 300″ total.  It was a great weekend and I could definitely write a whole lot more than this.  Click HERE to see the tourney write-up and full results.

October 1NCKFA Oak Island Classic – This tourney didn’t go too well for me.  First of all, I had planned on fishing the king mackerel division with friends, but it was canceled due to windy conditions.  Then, while re-rigging over beers on Friday night, I discovered I had a serious tackle issue that wouldn’t get resolved until a week later.  I ended up catching one flounder that was short.  It was just one of those kinds of weekends for me…  Tourney results can be seen HERE.

October 16 – Went to Harris with Joey and caught 6 bass and a pickerel on a white spinnerbait.  Best bass was 4.5 lbs and 21″ long.

October 29 – Had a great final event to the 2011 Carolina Yakfish tournament series.  Conditions were horrible to start, but it ended up being an awesome day.  Calvin Almond came from behind to tie Joe Angelcyk for the 2011 Angler of the Year!  More about that HERE.

November 13 – The Haw River largemouth were really feeding this weekend.  Caught over 20 bass with the best one weighing in at 4.75 lbs.  Fun, fun, FUN day.  Did I mention it was fun?  Worms and jigs caught the bass.

November 20 – Went to New Bern with Joey and Scott to look for stripers.  We found a few, but not the right size.  Meh.
