Congratulations to the top performers in this tournament, Matt & Al with 29.66 lb, Butch & Larry with 24.27 and Davis & Spera with 21.61lbs. Fantastic effort! As for Max and me, it was good team effort. Unfortunately, this was only my third time on Liberty this year and the second for Max. This put us at a big disadvantage, as the vegetation has changed a lot since last year. We were fortunate to have a small limit before 7:30 AM. It’s interesting how an early limit changes ones fishing perspective, allowing us to fish very hard but in a more focused and un-rushed manner than if we were chasing a limit all day. The bite slowed dramatically for us by 10:00 AM, but we fished our plan and made some adjustments throughout the day, leading to Max catching two good upgrades. We had our final 8 fish, 18.26 lbs, limit at 12:30 PM, with two small (easily upgradeable) fish in the livewell and 3.5 hours to fish. Unfortunately, there were no upgrades to be found. Finish place was 9th. Team Marchant & Marchant has a lot of room for improvement, but Fishing MRA helps us enormously. We look forward to future tournaments.
