This is your B.A.S.S. channel weather report for the week of Feb. 22-26.
On Wednesday, the Shreveport-Bossier City area experienced a high of 76 degrees but winds were whipping at 20 mph. So much for one good practice day, but the anglers did appreciate the sun’s help.
Thursday, an off day for the anglers, will warm to above 80, which should warm the water even more and expedite some fish activity.
The warming trend won’t last long. A cool front should make it close to freezing for Friday’s launch. The low will be around 37. The day will be partly cloudy with a high in the low 60s, almost 20 degrees lower than Thursday.
Saturday is more of the same; Mostly sunny with a morning low near 40 and a high around 60.
On Sunday’s Classic finale, the morning low will be 47 and a high of 62, making it three similar fishing days.
Good news is there won’t be any wild fluctuations, but the bad news is it won’t be as warm as the anglers had hoped.
