If timing is everything, as it oftentimes is in tournaments, the time might be coming for Harvey Horne to seal the deal.
Overnight temperatures were warmer than any other night thus far due to the approaching weather front. The warm spell has apparently triggered a wave of spawning fish into Horne’s area, which features gravel bottom conducive to making beds.
The report from photographer Gettys Brannon is that Horne is coaxing a pair of bedding 4-pounders into biting. He believes those are the males preparing the beds for what could be the incoming, bigger females.
Stay tuned, this could get fun for Horne, and especially should he catch those fish before the weather turns nasty.
