Skeet's year just keeps on getting worse

When things aren't going your way, it seems like everything that can go wrong will go wrong.  Skeet Reese has had a bad year for his standards and was fishing well at Wheeler this week.  He was third going into Day Three, but fell to eighth after a ten pound bag today.  Still he had a chance to win and make the Classic.  That was until he realized he had a sixth fish in the livewell. Here is what it said on Bassmaster.com

"Skeet Reese of Auburn, Calif., at first secured a Top 12 spot, but lost it. He weighed his day’s catch and returned to his boat and discovered a sixth bass still in his livewell. Tournament officials said Reese reported the fish."

The result was a zero for the day and he fell to 33rd.  I still don't know how this happens. Two years ago, both Bill Lowen and Bobby Lane were DQ'd for having six fish at Oneida.

When I fish in a tournament, I purposely only take five culling rings (even though eight come in my set).  That way I won't ever have more fish or forget how many I have. I'm sorry Skeet.  I hope 2012 is better for you.
