Overall the team from Ohio finished 4th as a team and brought home 3rd place money.  Too bad Illinois didn’t believe in themselves.

I tell ya you don’t go far between hearing about Alien stories when you mention Brian’s name.  This year it wasn’t what he was dreaming it was what he was fishing for.  The story goes that he set the hook on this 13 in smallie and before he got it to the boat a Alien fish ate the smallie and gave him the thought that he went under a rock.  But then the rock began to move, then made one more deep dive before coming off.  Brian was hoping he could land the Alien fish and take home the trophy.  But instead he landed his small mouth which stayed alive through weigh in.

The club got together at CCAP and completed building out the Eco Boat Washer.  It will be taken down to Rocky Fork on October 4th.  It will be a good project to see how many boats we can actually wash using solar and battery back up.   I will update the website soon since just got some pictures on the build out.
