Alright, fished that Federation qualifier that I previously posted about. They did end up getting waivers so we could weigh -in more than one big fish. 21 boats and it took 27+ lbs to get a check. My team tournament partner won with 39.46 lbs and had big fish of 10.88, he also had a 10.44, a 9.56 and another one about 7 along with a 14" keeper for his fifth fish. Second place was over 29 lbs, third was 28.90 lbs and fourth(last check) was over 27 lbs. Fifth was 26.88 sixth was 22+ lbs and I was a measly seventh with 21.70 lbs.
I know it's always the one that got away, but I did lose a solid 10+ at about 1:30 that afternoon. I did have one that weighed 9.78 that I caught on my third pitch of the morning.
