Practice was perfect for the Costa FLW Series Western Division event presented by Mercury on Clear Lake. Bass were moving up to spawn, and the fishing was good. Anglers brought in hefty limits on day one, but as so often happens, Mother Nature changed the game, and a front moved in mid-tournament. Scattered clouds on day one turned to rain on day two, which was followed by clear, chilly conditions on day three. No two days saw the same conditions. No two anglers in the top 10 utilized the same pattern.

The only thing more diverse than the weather conditions at the Costa FLW Series Western Division event presented by Mercury on Clear Lake was the selection of baits used by the top anglers. Anglers saw calm conditions with clear skies replaced by frontal conditions, which changed many anglers' go-to techniques from sight-fishing to casting reaction baits. Big bags were still brought in, and Todd Woods topped them all. He won the event after bringing in 77 pounds over three days. Here's what Woods and the rest of the top 10 anglers threw at Clear Lake.
