Lake Houston water was in decent shape and about normal pool level with water temps ranning 60-62 degrees. The weather at takeoff was a breezy 47 degrees with a warming to 69 degrees by weigh in time. The fish catching was pretty slow on Lake Mud today as there was only 1 limit brought to the scales, for a total of 15 bass at 40.22 lbs making the average bass brought to the scales today weigh 2.68 lb.
The Bass Guard wrapped BassCat/Mercury of Chris DiBerardino from Huffman, Tx ran to the north lake area to catch his bass throwing chartreuse/white chatter baits with his American Rodsmiths Rods and Shimano reels in 1-5 ft of water. Chris managed to catch 10 keepers to finish in 1st place with his best 5 at 17.63 lbs, one of his keepers was the Big Bass of the event at 5.07 lbs. These best 5 bites made Chris $780.00 for his day on the water.
Tony Digilormo ran his BassCat/Yamaha bass rig to Luces Bayou and used his Carrot Stick rods with Quantum reels to flip Tx rigged plastics in 1-4 ft water all day. Tony finished in 2nd place with a total of 4 bass at 11.02 lbs. Tony took home the Santone Lures & ZZ Lures Gift Certificates for his day on the water.
