Thank you Mike and Kurt for setting up this great tournament for a worthy cause. We had a fun day and really enjoyed meeting many fellow fly fishing junkies. As Bart said, it was an extremely hot day. Our team floated the Kankakee as well and the heat mixed with recovering water levels made for a real grind. Overall, we did have a productive day as we boated 12 smallmouth between 11-19.5 inches and a bonus 30 inch buffalo carp that took my brothers 7wt for a fun ride. Our top five smallies were three 16's, a 17 and 19.5. The recipe that seemed to work best for us this day was go big, slow and move some water. Can't wait to participate again next year and see you all out on the water!
