Right theme, wrong month. That was my lyrical impression at the final launch of the B.A.S.S. Nation Southern Divisional on Lake Eufaula. Probably no coincidence that one of the songs played during the pre-launch gathering at Lakepoint Marina was "November Rain" by Guns N Roses.
Indeed, the April rain that arrived during the overnight hours will likely remain the constant companion for the anglers seeking a berth at 2014 B.A.S.S. Nation Championship,Nov. 6-8 on Louisiana’s Ouachita River. Not the most comfortable of fishing scenarios, but the week's gradually warming conditions paired with the fish-stimulating low pressure associated with this precipitation will likely reward diligence today.
