Howell attacking topwater

May 17, 2013

We've just pulled up on Randy Howell. He's across the lake from Browning. Howell is throwing a topwater, looks like a walking-type bait. Now we're talking.   Fish are blowing up on his bait. Swing and a miss.   Like I mentioned before. I'm no expert but these conditions seem to set up perfectly for a topwater bite. Overcast skies, calm water. Post-spawn scenario.

So far, so good

This is funny. JO is out on the shoreline photographing Browning. I'm in our camera boat blogging. Browning is on the other side of us. We're all talking at once. Another day at the office. Do I really get paid to do this?   Only in a B.A.S.S. event.  

Lane and Browning

May 17, 2013

I'm riding along with photographer James Overstreet (aka JO) and we've been cruising around the boat ramp/launch/weigh-in site. We've come up on Chris Lane. Now he's leaving. Says he's going on a 37-mile boat ride. We'll pass and look for someone else.   After a short run we've come up on Stephen Browning. From the leader to third place. Not bad.   Browning says the water dropped one foot overnight, an indicator of how today will likely shake out for adjustments.
