James Overstreet and I have left Bull Shoals Lake, but not without nabbing another tidbit of news as we loaded the boat in Lead Hill Park. A local tournament was winding up as we left and we overheard a few anglers comparing notes. For them, bass fishing was tough on Bull Shoals Saturday morning. Four teams reported not having a fish.
That didn't seem to be a problem for most of the Bassmaster Elite Series pros we saw today, however we did see Matt Herren and Zell Rowland struggling early. The cold front that moved through last night and left 38-degree temperatures this morning and clear skies today definitely had a negative effect, more for some than others. We'll see just how much it affected everyone when the weigh-in begins at 3:15 p.m.
