We sent 2 teams of 4 boats to the TABC Top 8 State Championship at Sam Rayburn Reservoir.  Team #1 placed 11th with a 2-day total of 45.91 lbs out of 26 teams and Team #2 placed 19th with a 2-day total of 38.77lbs.  We may not have placed in the top 3 but we sure had fun while we were out there, even when the monsoon hit and we were having to fish with thunder, lightening heavy rain that sometimes made it difficult to even cast.  Some of the lessons that we learned during this time were 1.) If you cast and your line just floats in the air, it’s time to drop the rod and hit the deck. 2.) If you hear a humming noise coming from your rod, it’s time to hit the deck. 3.) When there is lightening in the area make sure you are not the tallest person in the boat and, yep you guessed it hit the deck! 4.) Rain suits do not work very well during rain like this and you still get wet even with a 500 mph suit.. just ask Brent!
