Bass Fishing Report; Mississippi River Pool 10; July 1, 2006

The past two weeks I have been able to spend eight days on the water, which has been a blast. The weekend of August 20 I had the Grant County 4-man open. I began my pre-fishing on that Thursday and found the bite to be somewhat difficult. This was largely based on the fact that it was cold and raining. But despite the less than favorable conditions we found fish hitting RC Tackle swim jigs in areas that had lily pads and eel grass. These pads had anywhere from 1-4 feet of water on them.  Here is a picture of a solid keeper. This day was the first chance to try out my new raingear from Gamehide. This stuff is awesome, I was in the pouring rain for ten hours and came in dry!!

The next day my brother and I checked some main channel spots in the morning and quickly found that when you found the baitfish, the bass were extremely active. We targeted these fish with a variety of top water baits.  After establishing this pattern, we headed back to the backwaters. Again throwing swim jigs and flipping tubes, we found fish in the pad fields. A large portion of these fish were short or just barely keepers, my brother did get this nice fish though.

Tournament day came, as did the fog. We started the morning off throwing Chug bugs and Gambler Baby Bacon Rinds on a sand point. We continued hitting main channel spots and got a nice limit of smallies. The rest of the day we focused on areas with sand and eel grass, using swim jigs, frogs and plastics.  The result was a 4th place finish and a 12 fish limit for 25 lb. Here is a picture of our team.
