We kicked off our 2022 season at Lake Cumberland on a cold, miserable day... but that didn't deter 20 boats from launching their rigs and chasing those bass we all love to fish for! To say the weather conditions were terrible would be an understatement... The high for Saturday was 44 degrees and that morning when we launched it was 37 degrees. All day long we had gusty West winds blowing from 10 to 20 mph. Throughout the day we had periods of rain, snow, and ice showers along with cloudy/overcast conditions. Despite the horrible weather, some big bags of fish were still weighed in! Congratulations to JB Rediess and Bradly Rediess on the win! They brough in 17.75 lbs of all smallmouth that they caught on jerk baits and Alabama rigs on main lake points near spawning areas. They were targeting that 15 foot range while their boat was a little farther off the bank in 20-25 feet of water. Go to our Facebook page and look at their sack of fish! Our second place team of Shelton/Shelton had a nice bag of largemouth; two over four pounds! They were targetting a little more shallow water in the 12-15 foot range with a heavy spinnerbait with a large blade slow rolling it along the bottom. They mentioned they were looking for dirtier water that may be a little warmer and more suited for largemouth. That definitely seemed to pay off for them! Our third place team of Morgan/Turner found themselves fishing at the mouths of major creeks in fairly clean water with a single swim bait. They also were targetting that 15 foot range while their boat sat in 20-25 feet of water. The ticket for them was keeping the swim bait higher up in the water column as the fish were feeding upwards. Our last payout for the tournament was our fourth place team of Brinegar/Walker. They were fishing stained water in the 12-15 foot depth zone slow rolling a 3/4 ounce spinnerbait along the bottom. As you can see by our top four teams, their was a "sweet" spot in the depth zone where the fish seemed to be biting best! Other teams mentioned getting bites in those same depth zones with flat sided crank baits, jigs, chatter baits, and a few other assortment of baits.

All in all our first tournament of the year was a success despite the weather! Saturday's take-off and weigh-in went about as smooth as we could have hoped for. Our Friday night meeting was phenomenal and we want to thank Pastor Christian Naylor and his staff at Russell Springs First Baptist Church for hosting our event. Thanks to all of the anglers that braved the weather and we hope to see you for the remainder of the season!
