Morristown Marine Tournament Cherokee Mar. 16-17, 2013

We just fished in the Morristown Marine Tournament Trail on Cherokee Lake this past weekend.  It was a two day event.  The first day was pretty good, but most of the fish bite in the afternoon so there was some slow times early on.  My partner caught a 4 lber in the first hour and then it was 3 hours later before we caught our next one but it was a 4 lb smallmouth.  We fished out our limit and had 14 1/2 lbs. and were sitting in 18th.  On day two it was very similar in the fact that most of our better fish came in the afternoon.  We caught some 2 to 2 1/2 lber throught the day and had a 3 lber in last few minutes.  We had 13 1/2 lbs with a 2 day total of over 28 lbs finishing 12th.  The winners had 39 lbs.  We were around some good fish but our timing could have been off a little.  We still had a great time.  We caught most of our fish cranking and flipping in muddy water.  Cherokee is fishing really good right now and will continue for the next month or so.  If you want some experience power fishing shallow muddy water book your trip soon.
