With an hour left in the tournament, I decided to fish the Rt. 79 bridge pilings. Drop shotting proved fruitless, so I switched to a football jig. First cast to the third piling, jig dropped right down alongside the piling. As soon as it hit bottom, I watched as my line started moving. Swung hard and set the hook. If I wasn't already anchored, he woulda dragged me around the lake! Fortunately, with me losing my phone earlier in the day, a fellow tournament member came along and kindly helped me get her submitted. I missed taking home the Big Bass award by .5 of an inch. My PB to date, although I have no idea exactly how much she weighed.

      That was a link to a N.Y. state site that estimates weight from length and length from weight.

      Based on the length and girth, I would guess between 4 1/2 and 5 lbs. Really nice fish, Jim!
