Well I am an idiot....Again.

We sucked. We fished hard all day and only caught 1 king. It was only 8 or 10 lbs and we didn't bother to weigh it. Guess we should have.:doh

Congrats to all of the teams that made the board. Team Hit Man gave it 110% but came up short. I had a lot of fun though. Thanks to Brad and Stacey Sauers,Joe Z, and all of the dock crewfor all of their hard work. Already looking forward to next year!!!! See ya at the Queen of Kings.

brad, hate that you had such crappy weather for the event. i think the captains choice of days format was a big plus, and it looks like there were plenty of good fish weighed. glad as can be it worked out.

congrats to everyone who fished. i understand the fish were a long way from port, and those that made that run had to work for them. hats off you guys for getting it done in these conditions.

cheers.

I'm curious to know where the fish did come from (at least the general area). We fished every rock, rig, and live bottom area I could think of looking for them and they either weren't there or weren't hungry.

Hopefully the forecast will be better for next year. I didn't think the weather was as bad as forecast. We did buck 4 footers for over 3 hours on the ride out, but once we got there, it was plenty fishable. Had a good current / wind situation too so holding the boat in one place took almost no effort. The ride in was actually pleasant (except for the lack of fish in the box.)

I think the tournament was well organized and run. Congats to all that placed. 62lbs. Wow that is a stud.

What was the pay out? How many boats paid/registered to fish vs how many actually weighed in? We were planning on fishing it, but the weather was just too muchof arisk. Hoping for better forecast for Queen of Kings...

Brad has more solid numbers on payout but I think it was 26 or 28 boats in and maybe 15 or so fish. Very tough day for the fishing, not so much for me at the scales.

Payout totalled over $16k. Over $2k went to PACE Center for Girls. We're pushing $3k but the final numbers are still out due to some last minute expenses. 26 teams entered. The payout was based on 70 boats. Of course pictures never seem to do justice. You will be able to see them on www.millerlitemackattack.webs.com soon.
