Morning bite could be a little more solid today

Many of the pros said Thursday’s morning bite was a little off because of the strong thunderstorms that pounded the area Wednesday night.

Even guys who eventually caught big limits - like Chad Pipkens, Brandon Cobb and Keith Combs - said the thunder and lightning seemed to have the bass in an early funk.

Since Thursday night seems to have been a little quieter, it’ll be interesting to see how that early bite works today.

There’s a shad spawn in progress on the lake, and most of the action usually happens early. If the conditions are better today, we could see fireworks shortly after takeoff.
