"Back on Track" - June 21st 2019

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.

Two Down One To Go

Well we finally got the party started! This is the first time I can remember water temps still in the low 60s around the Memorial Day opener. It’s been a whirlwind with 3 tournaments in a row, 2 down and 1 to go at the time of writing this. Let’s start with the Tom Cook Memorial day tournament on Muskegon.

With the low water temps, I knew this year would be a little different. However Cameron and I located the right ones to do really well in this event. The problem was we didn’t have much to back them up if we got out of rotation. It was going to be all or nothing depending on whether the college tournament weighed them in or another competitor got them first. We had great weather for the event with some sun and calm conditions, it looked like it would be a great day for sight fishing.

Time to Weigh the Best 5

Here we go, less than a week until bass season opens and many of the biggest tournaments of the year are about to go down. There isn't a lot going on in West Michigan for the opener. I don't know if that is because we have it so good during the rest of the season or what. But there isn't anything notable until the West Michigan Bass Tom Cook Memorial Day tournament. I'm not sure that one is setting up great for me especially with a college tournament on Muskegon 2 days before but I'm going to get in on it anyway.

I still don't have much loaded in my boat because it has been such a cold water fishery this year. I'm working on that all this week as well as getting some supplies sent in from ClearH2O Tackle. Hopefully by Friday it will be all ready to roll for the next few weeks. It is a busy start to the season this year with the opener, the HOTD on Grand Traverse Bay, and a D&R on Muskegon all in consecutive weeks. It is definitely shaping up to be a lot of smallmouth fishing to start. This spring has been pretty busy with the brown bass anyway so I'm all for it.
