Don't feel bad, talked to a few that fished that, they said it was tough. Also heard a few were not real happy about the winning weight and who won! I'll let it go at that. To many locals fish the buckeye tournaments, that's one reason I won't fish a tournament there anymore. Why does it seem the local always wins? Makes you wonder.
It always seems that way Dale . The bad thing is that the locals that usually do good there every year only had 1 or 2 fish ! With over 14# for first and 2nd with only a little over 7# , it makes you wonder . We ended up with only 1 keeper that wieghed .85# and I didnt even feel it hit and gut hooked it . It only lasted about 15 min. before it expired . With the penalty We dropped to .35# . The only good thing is that we got some points .
