Fishing Notes

Today was another practice day for tomorrows BWTSA tournament which I will be fishing with my good friend and avid bass fisherman from St. Louis Tim Ladd. This afternoon I practiced alone awaiting Tim’s arrival. After having a good day yesterday with the buzz bait, it was hard for me not to throw it a lot today, knowing that it can be a big bass bait. However, due to the sunny skies and light wind, I only had two keepers on it today. I did work many different baits that did produce some fish, the lizard and tube. I am beginning to feel that the bite behind the docks has become tougher with the ultra clear water, especially with calm water. So this evening Tim and I worked some rocky banks leading into/out of the spawning areas with moderate success. We did have 4 keepers bite in one cove, but we only boated one of them which came off a bed on the buzz bait. The other keepers that came undone were chasing the spook and biting the tube.
