Welcome to Bassmaster Magazine's Day on the Lake! This month, it’s Brandon Card’s turn to take on a small lake he’s never seen before; he’ll attempt to catch bass for seven hours while we document his every move. The 26-year-old Caryville, Tenn., angler was the 2012 Bassmaster Rookie of the Year and qualified for the 2013 Classic. Here’s what happened April 12, 2013, when Card took on Lake X, a small reservoir. If cold fronts have ever negatively impacted your spring bass outings, you’ll want to stay tuned for what follows.
7:24 a.m. Brandon Card makes his first casts of the day with a swimbait in the upper end of Lake X.
