As grown men battled it out for $1,000 dollars in prize money I still cant get this story out of my head and I hope Clay doesn’t mind sharing the spotlight here. You can watch the weigh in video here.
Clint Tanis and his son Rydeck made the trip from Big Spring Texas to fish in the Lubbock City Limits tournament and I hope it is a trip Rydeck will never forget. Rydeck is 11 years old and caught his first bass from a kayak and he did it on tournament day. If that is not something to get excited about I don’t know what is. When I got onto Dunbar Lake the first anglers I came across were Clint and Rydeck. Rydeck had just landed his first kayak bass and was glowing with excitement. He didn’t catch any more fish that day, but I have a feeling he is probably hooked on Kayak fishing for good now. Thank you Clint for sending the picture.
As for all the anglers chasing bragging rights and payday it was a good day of fishing. There was 9 stringers of 5 fish turned in and only 2.5 inches between 1st and 3rd place. There were a total of 67 measurable fish turned in for a total of 935 inches of Lubbock Largemouth bass. It sounds like most of the fish were caught on Dunbar Lake with a few being caught in other “Secret” spots around town.
Congrats to Clay for taking home 1st place and Big Bass and $775 bucks. Here is a full list of the results.
