    My brother in law and I fish on Monday nights in the SRM tourney. Last night was going pretty bad for the first 3 hours. We ran to Hamilton creek…nada there. Went to Hong kong islad….nothing there. Pocket in the bluffs across from one of the boat ramps and nothing there. Went to the cove directly across from the 2 cut through islands and caught 3-4 short fish there. Went out of that cove and up along the channel to the 2nd small pocket on the left and caught some short fish there and got several really good bites along with a 10lb channel cat that wasnt very happy! So about 9PM we went to the Fate sanders cove (Legal to fish on Mondays as long as you stay away from the Dock side!). Dylan caught a 3lb LM on about the 3rd cast and right as he flipped his in the boat I hung one that took off and just started reeling drag off. He as trying to get his off the hook and in the live well and Im chasing mine all around the boat. He finally just drops his in the bottom of the boat (still looked) and grabs the net to get mine in. 5.5lb LM there. We fished on up the bank a little and about 5 mintutes before it was over at 10 Dylan caught another 2lb fish. So we went from not a keeper all night to 10.5lbs in about 40 minutes of time and ended up 5th out of 40 boats. So actaully finished in the money for once! Took 15.05 to win. So if we could have managed 2 more keepers we would have been up there for 2-3 probably. It was bonus night so the winners walked away with 990.00! Not bad for a 4 hour night!

    We caught all our keepers on a Larew rattlin crawl in black/red flake. It seems to be the only thing we have luck with after dark! It makes a ton of noise coming through the water with the glass rattle in it.
