Back on Track
It may have taken 3 tournaments but we finally righted the ship and caught a few of the right ones. We recently had our first D&R tournament of the year and got off to a great start, grabbed some valuable points, and had a blast.
Timing was weird for this one because of the late spring. There weren't a ton of bed fish to bed had, the largemouth weren't ready yet, and the channel was fading. There were alewives in the lake which may have contributed to it being more difficult too. Either way I felt there was no clear thing that was going to win the tournament. But I knew if we were going to do well sight fishing would play a role in it. I was a little surprised when there were 3 bags over 16lbs at the Monday nighter out there. Cameron and I mostly eliminated a lot of water that night but got a bite around alewives going the last half hour. We scraped up the last check and won big bass with a 4.75. Immediately I knew I was going to try and get in on this first thing Saturday morning.
