This past weekend I fished Bass Fest with a good buddy of mine, Kirby Wallace. We started off the morning throwing topwater, but nothing wanted to commit. We worked our way up the bank to this small bridge and I pitched a black and blue jig around the pillars. I caught five fish within about ten minutes, the biggest one being a little over four lbs. We dissected the spot a little more and didn’t get another bite so we moved to an area where we had caught good ones pre-fishing the weekend before. We threw topwater and punched in this spot for about an hour and right before we decided to leave I stuck a nice 5 lber. At this point we had about eleven pounds for our best three fish. We fished here a little longer and didn’t get another bite. Our primary techniques for the day were punching and topwater, we made little calls here and there but nothing big. For the last hour of the tournament we fished an area where we had caught some nice fish pre-fishing the day before. The tide was out and we continued with our flipping and punching, While I was punching I saw an area of sparse grass just below the surface. Kirby and I looked at each other and were thinking the same thing, “looks like a good spot for a plopper.” His line was in the water all of about five minutes and I heard a big splash, he landed a nice 5 lber. which put us at 14.51 lbs. for our best three fish. We ended up sixth overall in the tournament. The Delta can be tough this time of year but I thought we did well and I want to thank BBT and Randy Pringle for putting on a great tournament.
