Tournament: Get5Bass Solo Series February 25th, 2017 Lake Ouachita
Anglers: Frank Leone - 18th place - 5 bass - 9.91 pounds
Practice: No Practice
With my boat not in yet, I had to borrow one from Horizon Trike and Marine. Got to take out a Phoenix 618 and I have to tell you I was impressed with the ride... When I got everyone taken off, I decided to head upriver. When I arrived at my starting location, a brisk northwest wind was hitting me in the face. I started cranking a channel swing and caught two keepers at the first stop. The second stop was more fruitful, and I was able to catch 4 more keepers pretty quickly. I decided to hit a couple more spots before I headed down the lake. The next stop produced 3 more keepers, including a chunky 3 pounder which turned out to be my biggest bass of the day. It was now decision time. Do I go down the lake and throw a trap or try something else? I decided to try some main lake points with a jerkbait. I found out pretty quick it wasn't going to work for me, so I decided to head into the South Fork. I was able to make 1 small cull and caught several short fish, but my goose was cooked.
