Fishing Notes

Today was what I think of as my first day of practice for this weekend’s FLW BFL tournament. This is the first time that I will be fishing as a boater versus a co-angler and I am a bit nervous about it as there are so many great fisherman in this tournament. I started out the morning fishing in the upper Glaze area (my home turf so to speak) working the Crock-o-Gator Black buzz bait on big shallow rocks. I had several good blow ups on the buzz bait, but as I am practicing for the tourney, I am not setting the hook, just pulling it away from them and covering up the ends of my hooks. At least two of the blow ups were small keepers. I then started to work some of the coves toward the toll bridge, had one keeper off a brush pile, again with hooks covered, I was only able to see it come to the top, it was a 3+. Then I started to flip docks, working all the shady areas of the docks with the D-Bomb and Brush Hog on Waynes Head, I had several keepers, the 4 pounder got stuck so I do have a pic of that fish, I hope he still bites on Saturday. The 5+ pounder was the most fun, my bait was behind some chains in a dock slip, when I raised my bait to come over the chain he bit it, and came flying out over the chain, again as my hook was covered I did not boat the bass, but he was a donkey. It was a fun day. I hope they are biting like that for the tournament.
