BassCam: Mercer's morning break down

Dave Mercer breaks down Toledo Bend.

Wind factor on Toledo Bend

“The wind is your friend.” Perhaps not on Toledo Bend, according to Alan McGuckin’s blog early in the week with 2016 Toledo Bend Bassmaster Elite Series Champion Kevin VanDam. With lighter wind, than practice, this may change and benefit the shad spawn extending the very possible bite. Of all stages of the largemouth spawn, the stage the wind may hurt the most, is the sight fishing bite. Prespawn, bedding fish, and postspawn fish are all expected to play a factor in the 2017 Toledo Bend Bassmaster Elite Series presented by Econo Lodge.
