Wow was I ever wrong about the prediction of biggest 5 fish stringer ever caught in a WTKF tournament. There was a storm 2 nights before the tournament and when I got to the lake on Friday night everybody seemed like they had caught some fish during prefishing. However I believe the full moon combined with the bluebird sky’s and 25ish mph wind all day on tournament day made the bite really tough. It ended up being a really tough day for everybody and a 3 fish stringer ended up winning the tournament.
And with that being said congratulations to Daniel Merritt for winning his second tournament in a row during a really tough day of fishing. Not only has he won 2 in a row but has fished 4 events this year and never finished below 6th place. It looks like it is going to come down to the last fish of the year to see who wins the brand new Feel Free Lure 11.5 and payed entry to the Tournament of Champions on Lake Fork. Make sure you come out and see the showdown in San Angelo on July 22nd to see who will be taking home an extra kayak.
