3 lb Plus Crappie Wins Big Moma
Story by BW
Our 4th Big Mama Open was deemed to be the biggest in club history, however with the threat of severe thunderstorms many would-be entries backed out. However the Lord shined on us and allowed us to have success despite the weather predictions. I think the Friday night prayer by Mr. A.E. Smith was heard upstairs. Mr. Smith told me before the pre-tournament meeting that sometime you have to have “Prayer-Meeting on the Water”, guess he was right.
I pre-fished with Ricky and Jimmy all day Friday around the Graysport Bridge. I watch them pull one after another slab from the ditch by the bridge. When I interviewed Jimmy after the weigh-in, he stated he caught the winning fish in the same spot I fished most of Friday. I kind of believe Jimmy, he’s always been a straight shooter, no sand-bagging from him.
Terry interviewed Ricky and asked where and how did they catch that 3.19# fish. Ricky’s answer was “I told Jimmy when I put that 4” minnow on the hook, we ain’t gonna have to measure the fish that hits this one. Its gonna win the whole thing”. Well Ricky, guess you hit the nail on the head. It did win the whole thing.
