Date Fished: 3/10/2001
Water Temperature: 53
Water Clarity: 0

Fished club tourney out of Hwy 48 today and had a ball . Placed 1st and partner was 2nd . Temps at blastoff were about 28* with a heavy frost , but that didn't slow the bite . Had limit ( 7 fish ) by 7:45 and partner had his at 8:20 . Early bite came on crankbait and spinnerbait on steep rocky bluffs near creek channel . Everybody reported a great early bite until about 8 or 8:30 and they said it seem to slow down a lot . It never stopped for us we caught fish just about everywhere we stopped ( about 40 in all ). Once sun got up most of fish , like last couple of weeks , came off rocky points . The biggest difference today was that they were on the secondary points in the pockets in 8 to 12 ft of water . All of our fish after 8:30 came on finese worms , gourd green and watermelon . Partner caught most all of his on C'rig , mine came on 1/8 oz lead head jig or T'rig with 2/0 hook and 1/8 oz bullet wt. on 8lb line .Water temps 51 to 53 ,down almost 6 or 7* from last weekend and clarity below 48 to Flat Rock fairly stained and anything up river above Mad Indian creek was muddy and dirty . Looks like some really warm temps for the next few days and that should move the fish to the pockets ready to hammer spinnerbaits and trick worms . By the middle to the end of the week we should start seeing some heavy largemouths caught . A quick reminder that next Sat. 3/17 is The Cheaha Bass Clubs Annual benefit tournament and pre-registration is way ahead of what we have had in the past . If the weather stays warm and fish continue to bite like they have the past few days we could come close to having 100 boats . We'd love to have you fish with us . Great guaranteed payback and the best fellowship in the world with proceeds to benefit The DHR's Christmas for Kids program . If you need more info or would like to pre -reg e-mail me @ jcolburn017@cs.com. Good fishing and hope to see you Saturday . Good Fishing , Jeff
