Better luck when the pressure is off

Last Friday, fishing was great while I was preparing for Saturday’s Bass Fishing League Super Tournament on Lake Gaston. 
I caught fish pretty much everywhere, including one that was well over 5 pounds.

Last weekend was perfect for celebrating a wedding anniversary with the weather being more like November than anything typically seen in North Carolina in the middle of August.
