Fruitjar tournament

Fun was had by all Saturday. We had 20 boats fish, and all weighed a 7 fish limit. My partner and I won the tourney with 11.78lbs and took the big fish pot with a 2.30lb slab. Most teams pulled crankbaits, but we found better fish slow trolling minnows in 17 to 20 feet of water in a creek channel.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
