Another OCC in the books and there's a new happy first place team from the biggest little city in the world... just not us...
10 teams showed this year with 50% of the cash prize pool going to first place (somewhere around $450), 35% to second, and 15% to third. The kicker... over $350 to the angler with the biggest fish. No commanding leads or tournament run-aways this year. It was a close game for all teams all the way until the end of day two.
Even though we tried, team master baetis (minus the dirty Samchez) couldn't bring home the trophy this year. If there were an award for the biggest clown show, we would've been heavy contenders. Our day one was fraught with break-offs and lost fish. We unbuttoned well over 150 inches of fish on day one and broke off another 70 or so inches. I watched Jason break off what would have been the biggest fish of the tournament by a clean 5 inches... pretty heartbreaking to watch a $350 fish deal you an ass whooping... but that's how the Truckee crumbles.
Still had fun and still didn't win... again. Pretty much the story of my life.
Did manage one decent fish to help the cause:
