Don't know if anyone saw it, but I was reading the the new "Time" magazine this afternoon and saw a blurb about a bass fishing contest somewhere in Arkansas--didn't say where--but it was called the "Forrest Wood Cup" tourney. Never heard of it. Anyway--the grand prize was $1 million dollars, for most pounds of LMB caught over a two-day period. Now get THIS: the WINNER--I swear, the guy who took a cool million home--had a cumulative 17 pounds--with 7 bass!!!! No, that is not a misprint. That's only 7 bass in two days, each an average of only a bit over 2 pounds!!! I nearly dropped my teeth. That must be one WHALE of a hard lake to fish. Most people on this forum have caught more pounds of bass than that in ONE TWO-HOUR EVENING. I did better than that just a few nights ago, I fished from 6-8pm, and I caught 5 bass that I promise you weighed more than 17 pounds total. And that seemed a little slow to me--averaged only one bass every half-hour or so. Man! Maybe we should move to Arkansas...looks like if you can actually fish, you'll get rich!!!
