Week In Review

We had a great week of weather again, and the fishing results were fantastic. Jason Dubose with Oldfield Plantation brought a group of anglers down, and they tore it up. The European contingent was not to be outdone, though, catching some great fish as well.
Jason, Bridger, Jack, and Gordon all had Grand Slams. Gordon also caught a snook, but not on the same day, so he missed the Super Slam. Jake also turned in a nice Grand Slam, and several others just missed theirs. All in all, a fantastic week.
