Day One Results - 2013 Lady Bass Classic

Garland, Texas - October 17, 2013

By: Mark Bilbrey

Day one of the 2013 Lady Bass Angler Classic began with a chilly start this morning in Garland, Texas as a bone chilling 49 ° degree cold air mass gave way to a blue bird sky as the sun rose over Lake Ray Hubbard. The clear cold sky was following a front that had brought torrential rains to the areas of North Texas during the practice days leading up to today’s event.

Not the ideal conditions for any bass angler. However the ladies of the LBAA were not discouraged as they were forced to change the tactics that they had perfected during the dark cloudy skies and heavy rain while pre-fishing the lake. Displaying their ability to fish the conditions and to be as diverse as the lures they chose by bringing bass to the scales. Several of the ladies caught fish all day, but had difficulty meeting the 14” length required for largemouth from the waters of Ray Hubbard.
