I was parked and getting ready as the light started to enter the sky. With a tournament tomorrow and no recent information for the bay, I knew that I had my work cut out for me! Fortunately, I had fished this bay about a month ago and knew where some of the weed beds were.
I cut about 20 holes at my first destination and on my first drop I caught an 11″ crappie. Great start to the day. Unfortunately, that was the only one that I saw. As I worked over a large area throughout the course of the day, I found small concentrations of decent pumpkinseed and bluegill. Catching them was no issue but after exploring much of the bay, I realized that we were going to be fishing shoulder to shoulder in the morning.
I fished until almost dark but never saw where the fish turned on any more than they had been biting all day. With a few spots marked on my Navionics app I felt content that I stood as good of a chance as anyone.
