Favorite Fishing Story: My favorite fishing story would have to be the time I was drawed in a tournament to fish with Adam Wagner on Percy Priest. I was so nervous because I knew Adam was a good angler and I didn’t want to mess something up. We were fishing cuts on bluff walls in the main part of the lake. And about the third cast of the day Adam yells get the net. I rushed over hurried up put the net in the water and landed the fish for him. It was a nice 5 pounder. I was so relieved that nothing went wrong during landing the bass. As the day goes on it turned to be just on of those high pressure blue bird skies kind of day. We haven’t caught a fish since he landed the 5 pounder. Then all of the sudden with only an hour left in the tournament I caught a good 2 pound bass. I was so happy and Adam was happy for me. Later we weighed our fish and ended up both of us placed fifth place and earning a check. And that was one of my favorite fishing stories.
