Good luck on the tournament. I think this is a great story and personally there are lots and lots of smallies and cats in the river and I'm sure it will remain that way after your tournament.

I remember that. Why have regs and laws if they are not enforced for all situations. The DNR and the regs have always been a joke. Rivers are not lakes. Conditions wildly vary. I like the pure catch and release from April to mid June, but is it really enforced? How about the slot? The bass just get molested during the spawn. I am surprised they even do. The creeks are almost void of bedding bass, either from harvest or just being run off.
