The rapid bites for Bill Lowen have slowed to a crawl. He has landed a few short fish, but the big smallmouth he’s been catching off his morning stop seemed to have disappeared. “Here today, gone tomorrow!” he yelled. Still, Lowen has his shallow afternoon pattern where he caught most of the fish he weighed in yesterday. The cloud cover likely will not help that bite, though. He just landed another keeper ... but it’s small. Lowen has had a lot of success on this fishery. He hasn’t placed below the mid-30s, and has had two Top 15 finishes. So, there is little doubt he will know how to adjust to the changing conditions.
