    Report: Hey,you guys please submit your reports. I don't care what you have to say just tell us something!!! If the fishing sucked than tell us what didn't work. If you just killed 'em and the fishing was great than share the wealth. I know that this site can work, my friends and I used it for years down in California. So, please spare alittle of your time and tell the rest of us whats going on out on the water. Post your tournement score brag about big fish you caught, I don't care just submit a report, please.
    Thank you and good fishing.
