I love to power fish as much as the next guy, but around the spawn and the immediate postspawn, when I need to put fish in the boat, I often turn to a dirt-simple - and somewhat gaudy - finesse-worm rig that excels in shallow water. It's easy to set up and skips like a dream, which could help you reach shallow bass around wood cover and docks that you might otherwise be missing.

Dicky Newberry of Houston, Texas, and Nick Lebrun of Bossier City, Louisiana, each weighed a five-bass limit totaling 22 pounds, 6 ounces, Saturday to share top honors at the FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Cowboy Division tournament on Sam Rayburn Reservoir presented by Power-Pole.

This year, the second stop of the Costa FLW Series Southwestern Division presented by Evinrude and hosted by the City of Grove hits Grand under very different conditions. Despite warm weather that pushed the spawn forward across much of the Southeast, the Ozarks haven't enjoyed such a warm-up, and the lake is likely to be squarely in prespawn mode for the competitors.
Wow, what a ride. The 2016 FLW College Fishing National Championship is still a blur as my life goes back to the way it was. I have been overwhelmed with interviews, tests, class and work since I have gotten back, but that is what we college kids are used to I guess.
