Horton's bite dying

Feb 26, 2012

Horton’s observer said that he got his last bite at 10:30 this morning.

Dry spell for Horton

Feb 26, 2012

Tim Horton has hit a dry spell. He’s drifted the length of this finger and hasn’t had a bite. With Chris Lane’s BASSTrakk numbers showing now, Horton looks to be five pounds off the pace, but there are good fish in this area. The winds is blowing through this finger pretty good, which has kept the water murky and chilly.

Tim Horton working dead stems

Feb 26, 2012

Tim Horton is working a 400-yard stretch of dead pad stems. There’s a 6-foot-deep creek channel that bisects this finger of White House with grass in it, and Horton is drifting with the wind down the middle of it and casting to either side of it onto flats where the pad stems are. Horton just idled by us to make another pass, and said the fish he lost was three pounds or better. He then boated a 1 1/2-pounder but threw it back.

Update from Horton's observer

Feb 26, 2012

We've picked up Tim Horton's observer Bill Bjork. He said that Horton's action has been steady. A bite comes along every 45 minutes or so.

In the White House

Feb 26, 2012

We've left McDade and are in the first finger on the left in White House. Some observers said Horton has been catching fish pretty steady. We're not sure what he's throwing yet yet. There's submerged hydrilla, but the water is still quite murky. However, these fish live here year-round.
