David survives torrential rains with a third place finish  

May 1, 2010- PARIS, Tenn.- They are calling it the 100 year flood. Almost 14 inches of rain fell in Middle Tennessee in a 48 hour period. Although there was talk of cancellation, the Weekend Series event out of Paris Landing on Kentucky Lake took off under dark skies and downpours on Saturday. After a day of dodging severe storms and sideways rain, David dropped a 5-bass limit weighing 22.17 on the scales, good enough for third place.

"This was fun day and a miserable day at the same time. I had some fish located and everything went very well all day. I caught all of my fish flipping a 1/2 ounce Hoppy's brush bug jig. I don't claim to be the world's best shallow water fisherman, but I really love flipping flooded bushes. To get to do that, catch a lot of fish, and several big ones, made it a fun day. I don't think the rain let up for more than 15 seconds all day. It was crazy out there. At times I could barely see my non-boater on the back deck it was raining so hard. Thank God everyone got back safely. Congratulations to Mike Ward on a great win. I thought I might have an outside shot at a win today, but Mike blew the field away with a 26.57 limit. Well done Mike!"
