Saturday August 15
I fished a tournament on Saturday morning out of Sanders Ferry. This was the first time I had been on the lake in just over a month and it had been almost as long for my partner. Neither of us had time to pre-fish so we kinda of went in blind so to speak. We were lucky enough to get on a successful pattern early. That pattern was flipping super shallow grass and wood cover. This got us our limit by 10:00. We needed to cull so we decided to move out deep to look for some bigger fish. While scanning a ridge, I stumbled upon a large rock pile that was LOADED with fish that appeared to be good size. We backed off and I made my cast with a 1/2oz football jig and pulled in a solid keeper. We ended up catching a few more good fish off of that spot, including a 5lb 7oz largemouth.
My partner and I ended up winning our tournament with a total weight of 14lbs 8oz and I also took home the big fish prize. It was an all around amazing day on the water. Maybe pre-fishing isn’t as important as I had thought. haha
