Day 2 leader Mark Rose has fished three spots within the immediate vicinity of Lakeside Park and has one spotted bass to show for it. He started the morning by fishing an offshore area for about 30 minutes and has since jumped from shoreline to shoreline running what some would consider junk fishing.
Skipping a wacky rig and casting a buzzbait have been his two main baits this morning for his shallow spots. He’s landed three keeper spotted bass on the wacky rig and broke off another bite he had as well. Two of his fish came off the same dock as well.
“That was bound to happen sometime,” Rose said. “I’ve landed everything that bit this week, but that one broke me off at my leader knot. I now have three fish for a solid two and a half pounds.
