Here is a 4-pound Spotted Bass I caught on a 7-foot, 11-inch MH Duckett Micro Magic Pro with a Quantum Smoke HD and 20-pound Seaguar Inviz-X.
Weather report: It's hot. Already dreading fish care in this tournament. The water temperature is 82-83 degrees.
"Here's a few from practice this morning. We're finding the water a little low and warmer than expected."
Leaving my "work lake" to try and use my biologist skills and find bass on Lewis Smith Lake in Jasper, Ala., this week. Look forward to hanging out with all my friends and competitors. Safe travels everyone!
A picture from Saturday practice.
Headed to the Bassmaster Southern Open on Smith Lake!
Coming in as one of the youngest boaters, I've been hard at work trying to find some bass.
