I have a live bait tournament this week end so I decided to go and try to look for some fish down river. I managed to do fairly well on tuffies and a tube jig. I fished 4 mile and 6 mile creeks and caught 6 keepers. I left there and went across to the bluffs up from mcCurnnen creek. I caught several short smallmouth and one largemouth. I left there and went back up river and fished the bluffs on the left side down from the locks. Caught 2 smallmouth over 4 lbs and had one that went 3.4 lbs. I did not try fishing the tailraces. Lately, I have noticed the turbines have been coming on late in the day. I cannot rely on this pattern. I feel pretty confident about this weekend and overall wound up having 5 fish that weighed a little over 16 pounds. This should be plenty to win the tournament. The guys I am fishing against do not have that much expirience at live bait! Wish me luck.
