Allen Todd and I once again had a great practice, not catching a lot of numbers but the quality was great! 3-8 lbers and all the fish were shallow, in front of the tulles. The bass seemed to be in all stages, pre spawn, spawn, and post spawn. We just knew we were going to have a great tournament but wouldn't you know it, here came a warming trend with temperatures up to 90 degrees. We were almost at a full moon when the tournament started and we just knew there would be another wave of spawners coming, however; when the tournament started the fish just weren't there. I don't know if they moved into the tulles or out into the grass. Could not get the bite going again and struggled each day. Winding up with 18 lbs the 1st day and 16 lbs the 2nd day. All the fish were caught on 5-6" wacky rigged senkos, some with weight and some without. Pitched the holes in the grass and way back into the tulles with sweet beavers and senkos to no avail. Anyhow, had a great practice and a great time, just couldn't get it going.
Jeff's boat and truck are the official rigs for Tami Curtis's new TV Show Fish'n 4 FUN. Jeff was also made a co-host and Andy Manahl is the stand-in co-host. I managed to hang on to my position as the TC Sports Report host for the show...I hope I don't get fired for announcing this before the press release goes out! Behind the scenes, the other part of our traveling fishing group including Allen Todd and Steve Watte help us all with ideas wardrobe tips. We have a great group and a very exciting year coming up, you don't want to miss any episodes.
