Default Any Suggestions?

Hi!

I am new to the form and I am looking for some information. I am in high school and I have a bass fishing tournament on the Chain of Lakes this Friday. I can only target Largemouth and Smallmouth. If anyone knows information on spots that produce, any lures/rigs that work best, which techniques that work best, or any other useful information i would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Tight Lines!

I was just about to post the exact same thing lol. Are you on the North or South part of the Chain for the sectional?

I'm not sure. I believe north. But I could be wrong.

Pray the water warms up. It was 10* colder today than it was last Sunday. Bluegill colors, pb&j, and orange and brown are steady producers. The results from todays Anglers Choice tourney are pretty bad http://usanglerschoice.com/results/2...lectvalue=3031 Yesterdays Anglers Dream weighed in 1 limit as well. If you find cover that looks good, make multiple casts towards it. The bass we caught last Sunday were on timber. Good luck

Look for green weeds and lily pads. The pads are still under the surface but are visible with polarized glasses. If it were me, I'd concentrate on channel lake, bluff lake, and petite lake. If the water is clear along the shoreline fish the break where you can no longer see bottom. Fish wood and docks in stained water

Thanks 2sac
Unfortunately we can't fish petite for the tourney. I have ice fished it and it is super productive.
