Just drove 18 hours to Shreveport LA, to work at the BASS Classic for River 2 sea. As a competitor, this is a tough place to be, when you have made it 6 times, but it is the center of all bass fishing for the next week. I’m looking forward to working for some great sponsors and cheer on some of my friends. Should be a great show, and a busy week…
Ended up with another 12.63 lbs, and 14th place. The fishing got tough for me the second day, and we ended up with 8 keepers. I was split shotting wave tiki droppers and throwing jigs in water 5 to 20 feet. I did break one off in a structure, threw a jig in there and caught it, it still had my broke off hook in his mouth! Havasu is a great lake, and the smallies in there are beautiful, it was great to get back there. I want to thank my old buddy Ted Miller for prefishing with me, and I hope to do that again. This Saturday I will be flying to Portland for Pacific Boatland, if you are in the area, stop by and say hi!!
Caught a limit of smallies early, then caught a couple of good largies, and ended up in 15th with 14.33 lbs. The wind really blew today, tomorrow is supposed to be calm, so the weights could change. This lake is full of big fish, so your fortunes could change at any time. My partner broke off a big one today, and I had a good one pull off, so tomorrow I’d better clean up my fishing!!!
What a lake! I’ve only fished Havsu once in the last 5 years, and it has really changed. My first fish was about 5lbs today, and super=fat! After fishing Havasu for over 20 years before, I’ve never seen anything like it is now. I fished with my old friend, Ted Miller, and we ended up with our 5 best for about 17lbs. That wouldn’t even get a top 3 hear now. They are not easy to catch, but when you do figure something out, they are big.We have one more day of prefish, then the Won Bass starts on saturday. Should be a fun tournament, and I’ll let you know all the details , because I’m not fishing in the FLW the next week.
