I just finished the WON Bass Western Classic coming in 2nd place. I fished a 3/8 oz brown and purple Open Water Jig and Maverick jig for two days using a Yamamoto double tail green pumpkin and watermelon red flake.
The fish at both Nacimiento and San Antonia were in 10' to 35' depending on time of day. My Lowrance HDs were a big key to locating the bass.
I used the 7' Steez medium heavy rod with a Steez baitcaster loaded with 10 lb Seaguar fluorocarbon.
I moved around alot and if my electronics showed there were no fish in the area, I moved on.
Making the right choices, I came in 2nd place. Congrats to Darrin Bishop for winning the tournament on the Pro side and taking home a Nitro boat. Congrats to Tom DiGiulio winning the on the AAA side and also taking home a Nitro boat.
Congrats to Southern AOY Pro John Morrow, Northern AOY (AAA) Dave Nelson, and Southern (AAA) Tami Curtis (the only lady to ever earn this award). Well deserved all! Great job!
