Morristown Marine Tournament Douglas June 1-2, 2013

Morristown Marine Douglas 2013This is a recap of our tournament on Douglas.

Day 1 We started out on some deep structure that I found with my navionics chip in practice.  We caught a couple of 3.5 lbers on a deep crankbait.  We went to another spot and caught a 7 lber on a crank.  After 30 minutes of nothing we went to another area and didn’t get anything.  We then decided to go back to a previous spot and caught a 7 lber, a 4, and a few smaller fish.  We bounced around the rest of the day on some other areas but didn’t upgrade.  We weighed in over 24 lbs. and was leading the tournament.

Day 2  We went to some of our best areas and got nothing but a few small keepers.  It was noon and we only had 2 fish.  At that point we knew unless we did something completely different we would lose the tournament.  We went shallow and caught about 14 lbs in a matter of a hour.  We then went back out deep and caught 2 weigh in fish to cull out a few of the smaller ones we had.  We ungraded to  over 18lbs and went on to win the event.  We had a great time and made the right decisions at the right times.
