Great time several weeks ago at the annual fishing derby up in Rangely, Colorado. To summarize the tournament, there are multiple categories, it's a team tournament, and it runs for 30 HOURS!! We had an off and on bite for most of it but still managed over 75 Lbs of fish between the 3 of us, Our 4th bailed at the last minute😒! Species to target in this tournament are Rainbow Trout, Several types of Catfish, Common Carp, Black Crappie, and Smallmouth Bass. All 3 of us went for heaviest stringer as a team so we were bottom fishing with hair rigs for the carp and cats!
Multiple triple ups, constant double ups, and a multitude of good times including my GF attempting to swim halfway across the lake for her fishing rod😂😂😂 If you've never heard of this tournament, you should come check it out next year!!
