Don't Bash the Trash TGP

For those of you going to this event or thinking about it:

I got an email this morning from Tightline Outdoors saying that the event was originally dated Saturday 8/11 but the organizer has Sunday 8/12 on the tickets and fact sheets. Tightlines is emailing everyone with tickets already purchased asking which date we prefer. If you havn't bought tickets yet and you have a preference post it here and I'll relay your opinions to Nate.

Bob Cook took 1st with 3 fish, the largest 33". I took 2nd with a 15# 28.75" fish. Bite was slow but all the fish hooked were beasts. Several were lost too. Another fun tourney by Tightlines!

Super congrats to Bron!

I managed to end the day with a dry net and empty mug! Tough conditions with only 4 carp being landed, 3 for my fishing partner Bob and the 1 for Bron. Couple of anglers lost a few fish. I got in my net man and video practice for Bob, whose fish all fell to a single 10mm red pineapple boilie.

Still great to see everyone. Looking forwards already to next year.

Congrats Curtis!!! I know you guys fish them for the fun and friends, but adding some cash to the fishing budget sure doesn’t hurt!!

Great work!
