Garmin GPSMAP 441s helps reel in tournament-record catch
Recently two Garmin customers from West Plaines, MO., braved the blistery mid-west temperates to try their luck in what is said to be the oldest buddy bass tournament series in America — the Winter Bass-O-Thon at Bull Shoals and Norfork Lakes. With the help of their GPSMAP 441s, Waco and Fred caught a record weight of 29.19 lbs in a five-fish limit, earning them first place in the tournament, the title for the largest five-fish string ever weighed in the tournament series to date, and full bragging rights. We could tell you the rest of the story, but we think we better let one of the champs himself take it from here…
I am sending you this as a major thank you and appreciation and would like you to pass this along to all the wonderful people and employees who make things like this happen.
On January 15, 2011, my partner and I fished the proclaimed oldest buddy bass tournament series in America, which is called the Winter Bass-O-Thon. It is in its 43rd year or since 1968, and is held on Bull Shoals & Norfork Lakes in Missouri & Arkansas. It turned out to be a day we will never forget. We took off at 7:30 am and by 9:30 am we had caught a record weight of 29.19 lbs in a five fish limit. This is the largest 5-fish string ever weighed in the tournament series or any other local tournament series to date on Norfolk & Bull Shoals that anyone can find record of.
Last year I purchased a Garmin GPSMAP 441s with fishfinder. It has been a wonderful asset to my fishing. The morning of the tournament I went to one of my favorite stick bait spots which is located on channel swing with brush piles on it. As I was viewing the details on my fishfinder, it clearly showed a massive bunch of shad on the channel swing with the other structure, with larger fish streaking through them feeding. I actually watched one fish come up from about 20-some feet and eat my bait. I was able to stay on the school with amazing ease with these electronics and the rest was history. I could not be happier with the Garmin product.
Thanks from a super happy customer and fisherman!
