Hello from Florence Alabama. I thought I'd make a post so that maybe all the bro's from Missouri could hear how Cuz, and Cuzz's Ol man are doing at the King Kat Classic. I'll try and make at least one post at the end of each day for this tournament. My hopes are that some may learn from our experiences, and that some will make a post with suggestions that might help us. Anyhow, woke up yesterday at 3:30 am and made the 6 hour drive arriving in Florence at noon. We set up my dads Camper, and put the boat in at Lake Pickwick. First Mission - FIND BAIT. Ran 5 miles up river to Wilson Dam and proceeded to put 50 pounds of SkipJacks in the boat in an hour on White Crappie Jigs so bait was no problem and it was a blast reeling those things in 2 and 3 at a time on light tackle. We ran 15-20 miles up and down pickwick and quickly determined this wasnt the best lake for us to be on. Only averages about 15 feet deep. We pulled the boat out and put in at Wilson Lake just up from the dam and found all the deep water we could want. Its 50, 60, 70, 80 feet in lots of areas, and we even found holes with 100 feet of water. Didnt get to fish it much as it got dark on us. Today is our last prefishing day so we are going to hit it hard and try to find where the fish are holding at. Tournament starts friday and runs for 2 days so in my opinion today is critical to finding the fish. Using a Topo map and my GPS were basically looking for some relatively deep water, which has some structure and is holding fish. Then we just need to figure out how to get them to bite. Big Cold front is passing through so fish are on lock down. More tonight. Hope its not to cold back there in Missourah.
