Cold and wind yesterday slowed the bite down, Thats ok the cold is keeping the river temps in the mid to low 50’s which means a nice long white bass run.
Unfortunately we are going to have to cancel our 3 rd annual white bass tournament this year that was scheduled for mid May. The hunt for the white bass state record is still on– bring in those big bass. And we will be starting our weekly big what bass contest. Just bring the big one up to weigh–at the end of the week he largest get a 25$ gift certificate to the bait shop.
