    Rossy and I spent all day out there on Saturday. Its the best I have seen the lake look since probably 08. Grass is everywhere, and there are all kinds. Duckweed, hyacinths, American pondweed, some weird leafy looking stuff I have never seen, and chingos of hydrilla. Beautiful stuff, and the lake looks to have come up 2-3 feet , not as much as I had heard. The Thursday Nighters Championship is going to be a shootout.

    The hydrilla is so thick in some spots, my 1 ounce jig would not penetrate. Had to swap out to a 1 1/4 ounce texas rig to get through it. Glad I held onto my two good punchin sticks, they should be getting some good use on the 22nd.

    I predict 25-26 lbs to win it, and 18+ if you want a shot at getting some moolah.

    I am sure the grass is everywhere, but what part of the lake did you take those pics?

    Pic was taken on north east side of lake. Bigger fish are not in the grass, it seems. I got a call from a friend yesterday who had just caught a 9. It didnt come from the grass.

    I have been staying in the deep water as I always seem to do, maybe it's why I have not made much of a showing this year. I did fish a small tourney this past Sunday and took 4th all on back of back up water, would have won if I didn't try and swing a 4 pounder in. Teach me to for get the net
