Onward, still working to find the right groove
We’re at Lake Murray this week, after a frustrating last two days fishing of our Elite Series tournament at West Point Lake. I started out in great shape, got on some fish the first day, but then it dried up.
I started out those last two days looking to catch big fish early, because if you didn’t catch them at West Point by 11 a.m., you just weren’t going to get them. So on Day 2, my go-to spots weren’t producing and I had to go fishing. Then when I did run on a keeper I lost him - not once, not twice, but three times. It happens. One snagged in branches, another broke off the line, and to be honest I can’t completely remember what happened to the third one.
Then on the last day I had no option except to go hunt for big fish. Well, I’ll tell you how well that worked out. I caught three spots for a total of four pounds. In the end I dropped all the way to 49th. Not what I needed.
So now it’s on to Lake Murray, which I haven’t been to in several years. I’m not sure what to expect.
