That is a very impressive 4th place. You were fishing against about
150 locals. The guys that won it are locals. You had 15 of the top 20 that are locals.

To illustrate how tough it was, 132 of the 363 boats didn't weigh in a fish.

Thanks Kirk, and believe me I agree it was tough!! A grind would describe it better, as we had to fish hard for our bites and weighing in only 4 the 2nd day cost us a few thousand dollars!!! We had no chance to win it as those 2 blew it out, but 2nd we should have been! Had a good wknd but I really do wish they would have these classics any other month than September, which IMO is the toughest month on the calendar in East TN.

Congrats on 4th - I think we finished 107-108 - we just weighed 2 the 1st day and zero the 2nd - very tough - we did find a bank that was loaded with big fish but couldn't get bit - they wanted minnows and nothing else - hope you enjoy my donation 😝

congrats, September is real tough on Cordell Hull also. the amount of shad in the lake is unreal and they are about 1.5" long. the fish are so full of shad they don't want to bite good imo.

That's awesome. Congrats! I know a guy that finished one spot below you. September is a tough month during the day. It can be awesome after dark though or at least on Center Hill.
I pray to fish until my dying day. When it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray, when in the Lord's safe landing net & I'm at peace that in His mercy I be judged big enough to keep.
