Great Weekend on Okeechobee

I spent this weekend fishing two tournaments on Lake Okeechobee, a Toys for Tots charity team event yesterday and a Fort Myers Bass Club tournament today.  I ended up getting a check in both tournaments.  

Yesterday was a team event and we ended up in second place out of 65 boats with a 23.52lb bag and today was a solo event and I finished 3rd with 15.01lbs. 

Besides the top finishes, one of the coolest things about this weekend was that the show Ultimate Match Fishing was out there filming this weekend. They were hard to miss, three wrapped boats with bright yellow and black cruising around the lake in a convoy.  I saw them quite a few times and they were fishing in the same general area. I don't know who all was there, but I did see from their Facebook page that Ish, Stephen Browning, Stetson Blaylock, Brent Ehrler and Jason Quinn were out there.  I can't wait to see that show since I was fishing the same time and in some of the same places they were filming.
