Hey everyone!! Just a quick reminder that day 2 of the 2015 ACA Cabela's BoatUS National Championship will be televised on NBC Sports Network Channel today at 12:00pm.
This is the day I caught this beauty to break my personal record on an artificial lure and in a tournament.
She weighed 7.13lbs caught on the 8" Nicholas Magnum Spoon. I have something to build off of for next year’s championship. There were 162 boats in this event and won the big fish award on day 2. That means I beat out nearly 300 Collegiate Anglers for that award. I caught her with an Abu Garcia Revo STX Gen3 Reel and won 2 of them because of that. Overall big fish went 7.4lbs from day 1. That team got the trophy but I got the reels. I’ll take it. I will have to build on it so I can be contention to win it next year. It is a 2 day event in May on Pickwick and you have to catch over 20lbs limit each day to even have a chance. I can’t wait to make it back there.
I may only be on there for a couple seconds but still very blessed and thankful for the opportunity.
