This was my first year ever of bass fishing so to say the least it has been a great year. While Pre-fishing on Saturday I was using a 7 inch worm on a Texas rig and caught some good fish. My game plan was to do it when I started Sunday. Well wrapping up Saturday night I was watching an angler fish off the bank drop shotting. I had never done this before and I was intrigued after watching him catch one fish after another. So I went to the hotel room and watched a couple videos on the technique, went to Wal-Mart and got the supplies I needed, and ended up catching all my fish on tournament day with it!
On tournament day I fell in with all my clothes on and I also got high centered on my first log. Another angler stepped in to help me out lol, so there were a lot first in this tournament and I would not change one part of it.
