And just like that, Harvey Horne moved up a spot from seventh to sixth place with a fish weighing 2-4. He’s playing the same pattern as when he stared that tournament.
That is staying just far enough offshore to target bass that are coming off the shoreline as the water continues to drop 6- to 8-inches each day.
“The fish have been in the bushes all summer during the high water period,” he said. “I am trying to find bass that have pulled out with the falling water, and that are staging on the next available cover.”
Right now, Horne is fishing a windblown secondary point, which perfectly matches the above conditions. He is armed and ready with a wobble head jig and a soft plastic frog.
