This tournament was held Saturday, July 25th, 2012, out of Chester Frost Boat Ramp.

We considered fishing a few more places and that is when we landed right on top of a school of huge bass.  We sat there and caught our fish in about 20 minutes, losing in the process, two giant bass that we hooked but jumped off”.
