My boater took us to the river today. We were the only boat to risk locking through with forecasted gusts to over 30 mph. I was looking forward to the river as I usually do a little better there. The boater managed 3 keepers. I managed the largest jack fish I have ever caught, never did get a bass. We called the lockmaster and he said that he could not let us back through because the wind was blowing the wrong way. We had to call someone to get his truck and come pick us up. Since we were stuck there for a while he treated me to a great seafood lunch at the Dockside Restaurant. Hopefully I can put something together tomorrow. They are paying 58 places and I am only 4 pounds out at the moment.

This is a little late to post, however I'm a believer that you should always fish your strengths in a tournament and practice new techniques during off time.With that said, if you are a back seater, you should learn to follow up the front pro with either a drop shot or preferably a slip shot presentation. Bass tend to follow a reaction lure and if they don't strike it, they are alerted and looking for something else and a slower soft plastic worm or creature slowly moving by is a great temptation. It's like letting the boater be your chummer!
