Bass Snatchers Mississippi River Tournament Tomorrow
From the reports I've heard and our own pre-fishing, it will probably be a grind rather than a smash fest. Not sure what effect the cloud cover will have on the fish. I think the keys for me will be accurate casting and hooking/landing my bites. Have no clue what it will take to win or even be competitive. I'll guess a 15lb+ limit to win, 12lbs for the Top 5 and 10lbs for Top 10 A limit might be golden or not, who knows. From pre-fish I believe a 11lb limit is doable, anything more is gravy.
I'm going to start with topwater, but swim jig, and spinnerbait will probably always be right at my feet.
If I have to go to the Texas Rig, that is probably not a good sign.
