Steve and I fished our first Fishers of Men tournament of the year on Sat. June 4th on Clearwater. We had been out the week before prefishing and the results were so-so. At the Friday night meeting Steve won the Boat take off position 1 in the raffle. To bad we didn't have a great staring spot. We hit our first spot and put 5 in the boat in no time at all. It was the challenge of the day to upgrade. As we worked through or spots we could cull up ounces at a time until Steve got out big fish of the day a 3.53 largemouth. That was it for big upgrades. We ended up in 35th place with 11.62 pounds. Not a good way to start the year. Our next FOM is on Green(Spicer) a lake we tend to do well on. I am looking forward to that as it is an awesome smallmouth fishery.
