It was an early, cold and rainy start for 180 boats on Day One of the Bass Pro Shops Southern Open #2 on Douglas Lake.
It’s springtime. That’s about as good as it gets in the fishing world. It’s a pleasure to be on the water.
I’ve been on Douglas Lake in Tennessee for the last several days. What a change this is! In Zapata, Texas, it was around the 100-degree mark, the water was bath warm and the fish were in their postspawn mode. Here it’s just the opposite.
It's down to the Top 50 now. Watch as they get ready for the action this morning.
Last week I talked about the Sabine River and how the tournament was likely to be a good one. It sure turned out that way. The finish was exciting.
