I had a great tournament and was in the lead after weigh-in sat with the help of the daily Big Bass and eventually overall Big Bass. I had 17.11 for a total and a 5.12 as the Kicker, probably looking back at it now maybe the heaviest bag of bass that I have weighed in a tournament. The big fish came on a Crankbait and I also had keepers on a spinnerbait, tube, & a couple flipping. Now this is a 2 day event and Sunday I literally almost bombed. I could only mange 2 little keepers . I had the bites to get a good finish, maybe not a win but at least a good check. Sunday the fish where just bumping the bait not eating it. I didn't adjust well and ended up with a lack luster finish to what could have been a great tournament.
We got started late after a long fog delay Sunday, which is just part of fishing in these highland lakes in the fall and spring. At least Mr Webb our Tournament Director went and got us fishermen 3 dozen donuts, Thanks also for that also.. That fog delay meant my clear water cranking fish long gone. So I ran to my Flipping fish and that's where I had trouble with "Nose-Bumping" instead of eating it like on Saturday. I just couldn't make them bite and I'm not a quick learner what to do to make them want to bite. A great pattern of Crankbaits, Spinnerbaits, and flipping on sat turned into a survival round on Sunday.
Baits for the fish were
Underbite Custom Tackle Spinnerbaits (French's Smoking Shad was the color)
Jennybugs Flipping Bug (Blk Neon & Sapphire Blue)
Crankbait was the Rock crawler
Thanks for all the calls and text. It means a lot when your out here fishing your Dream away.
Also thanks to Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock for the Sponsorship they help me with and also for the class A treatment this weekend they gave all us Central Solo Elite Anglers.
