The Yak-A-Bass tournament on Rollins Lake I’ll have to say the MLF style was definitely a challenge! With not ideal conditions the lake had recently turned muddy with 2-3 feet visibility. Water temps ranging from 45-48 degrees. I started off the day throwing a yellow with gold and red flake flick shake to imitate the silversides. The first fish I hooked has good size and came off. Then I went through 12 fish with none of them measuring 14in. The bite died, I tried other techniques and then decided to fish shallower. With a hour and half left I then tied on a ned style worm with a darter head in PB&J. I started fishing it fast and immediately caught a score-able fish I found the stretch with a winning bag…. I then hooked into a great spotted bass pulling drag and then it got to the boat and took a run and popped off. I’d like to think that was potentially big fish of the event because on size it looked to be in the 4lb range but doesn’t count if it’s not in the net. Then lost two more decent fish at the end. The fish where pale and I may have been setting the hook to hard or skin hooking the fish. Learning lesson and one to put in my journal . To sum it up I really liked the challenge of this style of fishing it definitely was a challenge and a different mindset of how to do these types of events in the future. Come Saturday night our tournament director had to make the hard decision to cancel today due to severe weather warnings and as much as the weekend cost and how I would of liked to go back to those fish today it was the best thing to do to keep everyone safe. I will have to spend more time in these conditions to learn from my mistakes. Congrats to the winners and being able to adapt in such a short time frame there was only 10 limits with the winning bag being 80.75. On a side note of everyone that complains of the advance of livescope I personally did not see many active bass they where belly down in the water and if you thought you seen one they disappeared as fast they where there, most likely sitting in the mud or holding so tight to the rocks that they where hidden from view. All in all it was a great tournament. now onto the next one.
