went over to fish the song writers tournament, ran around on friday pretty much committed to staying shallow although i did look at some ledge stuff. fished a bunch of grass with no love but did get a few bite on topwater bites throughout the day around rock. Brian(my tournament partner) spent 2 days looking out deep and found a few schools of fish and a mayfly hatch down the lake.


so we ran down the lake to try and take advantage of the mayfly hatch, not a sniff. started jumping out to the ledge stuff, 2 catfish and a white perch. started fishing isolated brush and targets, still no love. at 1030 we pulled the plug and ran to teh area where i had gotten the topwater bites. one 6″ meanmouth was it, spent the rest of the day running that topwater pattern and it just never happened.


talked to a trusted fellow competitor that informed us that the current and the fish got right on the lower lake around 1030….UGH!!!! took 3 for 20+ to win
