Neely Henry - 08.26.17
We had a good turnout and pretty good weather Saturday...but we still collectively haven't produced a really big fish! Larry took the big fish 'lead' for the year with a 4.85. We only have 2 tournaments left to get one at least over 5 lbs! Nonetheless, Larry and Jim M. did produce a good bag to win with 13.49. We had 5 limits out of 13 boats.
The next two tournaments are Lay then Jordan, both usually good lakes for us. I expect we'll see some good bags and a big fish (I don't think we've ever had a year without one at least over 5 lbs.)
Terry gave some of us a chance to make a sizeable move in the points, but no one really took advantage of it, so he still has a good lead. He'll really have to 'tank' to let this lead slip ahead (no pressure Terry!).
We have started to have some of us (5) reach the "7 tournament" threshold, to fish in the Classic. For the rest of you, there can be 8 more qualify if you fish the last 1 or 2 tournaments, so please try to reach that.
