The wind slacked off last night, which bodes well for the pros that are sight fishing. Dean Rojas struggled yesterday and said the wind and rising water level prevented him from seeing his fish.
It's a subfreezing, scrape-your-windshield morning, but it's more comfortable than yesterday with the kinder, gentler wind.
Then again, less wind may undermine pros that are power fishing. I saw many of them casting and winding yesterday. One of them is among the leaders. I'm sure they would like the wind to continue howling to make things difficult on the sight fishermen.
With the weights so tight, every pro must be brainstorming how to catch one or two bigger kicker bass that will separate them from the pack.
If conditions are favorable for seeing bass, the sight fishermen will have a distinct advantage in the kicker bass realm.
