The Bend is back

Just finished doing some research on Toledo Bend's productivity in years past, and the lake is holding up pretty well. The average bass this week weighs 2.69 pounds, and that's very close to the historical best here.


In June 1980, the average bass weighed 2.79 pounds. That's the only time Toledo Bend has posted a better number than it's doing this week.


Taking a look at only the winner's catch, it looks like this year's champ is going to average about four pounds per bass. In 13 previous B.A.S.S. events, that number has been topped only three times and not at all in the last 10 years.
