    Default SML2-6

    The guys who usually run the Claytor winter series put one on at SML today out of Oak Grove. Had 18 boats. I only caught 6 fish all day, but did manage to weigh 14.14 for a 3d place finish. Got a little breezy around mid day, but not too bad for Feb. 2d place had 14.36. They had an 8lb er and 4 peanuts, but that got it done for them. First was 15 something.

    Glad I got to fish, after looking at next week's weather. Looking pretty nasty. My next one will be Feb 27. CATT tourney out of Smith.

    I was very pleased with the day. Beautiful day for first week of Feb. But the only bummer was with only 18 boats they only paid two places so I was sucking hind tit on the payout. But hey, beats going down there and zeroing.

    Water temps at Smith are still 41-43, which is high for this time of year. This coming weeks' cold snap will probably put it in the high 30's, which makes it a little tough. I missed the best part of the morning fixing a minor boat issue. Cranking battery would turn the engine, but not enough to start. A mad dash to AdvanceAuto to replace a battery is no way to start the day, but it worked out OK, only lost about an hour of fishing time.

    6 bass in February is a great day IMO. I'm jealous. How were you catching them?

    Not a one, which is odd this time of year, but it was all LM. For some reason I don't get as many SM as I used to at Smith.
