Tournament: Get5Bass Solo Series

August 1st, 2021

Lake Dardanelle

 

Angler: Frank Leone - 16th place - 5 bass - 9.78 pounds

 

Practice: No Practice for this one..

 

Tournament: Well, here we go again. Another tournament and another drastic change in conditions. This time, flows were receding from 70,000 cfs to 40,000. Seems like a change for the better for me, but I checked the Arkansas Youth Bass Hogs results from Saturday and catches were low. Hmmm, would this be a toughy for me? I really didn't think so, but after my first stop, I could tell the bite had changed or the fish were just flat comatose. Took several location changes, but I finally got on the board with a small keeper around 8:00 AM.  Besides for 1 more keeper, I struggled mightily for the next 3 hours. Finally got on a hot streak and caught 3 more keepers between 11:00 and noon. I knew I needed a big bite in the last hour of my day, but that bite never happened. My goose was cooked...

 

Keeper count:

 

5 keepers: Spro Fat John 60 SB - Denali Lithium 7' MH CB; 16 pound Sunline Crank FC

 

1 keeper: Spro Fat Papa 55 SB: 1 keeper - Denali Lithium 7' M CB; 14 pound Sunline Crank FC

 

Final Thoughts: A butt kicking. That's about all that needs to be said...

 

 

See ya' on the flip side...
