Warmer Day Three

6:07 am CDT, Apr 21, 2013 | By Mark Hicks

The air temperature this morning is in the mid 40s, much warmer than the previous two days. The morning bite was fast yesterday for many of the pros. It could be even better this morning.


Since the water didn't cool as much last night, it's likely that more bass will be shallow today.


Only a few of the pros have had success sight fishing. Among them is Aaron Martens. If some heavy females start nesting wherever he's fishing, he could move up in the standings big time.


Another pattern that is likely to evolve is bass in or near the bushes. This cover was high and dry during practice, but the rising water is beginning to creep into this cover.
