Pre-fishing the California Delta Might Not Have Helped

Pre-fishing the California Delta Might Not Have Helped

I actually pre-fished the California Delta. It takes planning and effort for a guy in Alabama to spend a week out West fishing two locations: the water around Sacramento, California, and Lake Havasu in Arizona.

Those are our next two Bassmaster Elite Series tournament stops. I wanted to be ready, so I came here to the Delta before the cutoff dates and took a look around. Time will tell whether that pre-fishing trip did me any good. Right now, it’s hard to tell.

At practice on Monday I caught about 12 pounds, which doesn’t sound great. Then you throw in the fact that I fished for about 12 hours. We’ll probably have four hours of fishing time on Thursday, our first day of competition.
