My buddy Matt O'Connell and I fished the UGA Fall Championship today out of Balus. We won the tourney and took big fish of 5.11. I believe our total weight was 19.66. Lots of fun! Big thanks to the UGA guys for putting on a great tournament! We probably boated around 20 fish today and every once in a while we would pop a good one. Same deal, hitting them with the Sebile and the spoon. Water temps right at 60.

Wow I must be doing something really wrong. After seeing all the reports I fished Friday throwing the Sebile and dropping a spoon and not so much as a sniff. You guys are the only reason I keep trying.

Congratulations. Those are big spots.

Thanks for sharing.

It was the biggest sack out of my boat to date. It's going to be hard to beat that one.

Thats an awesome sack of fish. Good job. I fished Saturday morning and couldnt get anything going. I was mid lake out of Vann Tavern, I had a couple bites on a jerk bait but nothing substantial.

It was for sure! We had a limit by 8:30 and then it was grind to upgrade. It was pretty special for me because I thought we maybe had 15-17lbs total and when I saw the display read 19.66 I just about fell over. I just didn't realize just how big those fish were. As it turned out 3 of our fish were right around the 5lb mark. The 5.11 really put the 7lb flouro to the test. Those big spots make a few pile driving runs but I had my drag adjusted and kept good pressure on them. Lots of fun!

I know what you mean. I keep thinking we're going to be getting into a good crankbait bite any day now so I keep checking shallow stuff and putting some shakeyheads on the docks but those big ole deep fish are the big ticket item for me right now.

Awesome. Congrats on the win. That's a good sack.
