Henderson Tournament Day

A report from one of our Team Members Aaron Pousson on Henderson:

'We started out the morning cranking and big top water on a couple deep points where we heard people were catching earlier in the week. This was a mistake due to our lack of getting bit. We made a quick run to a protected area with an exposed small bank with a couple drains. I immediately tied on a black popping frog and started quartering the bank. 3rd cast I had one about 2 pounds. Moved up the bank about 50 yards to a big drain with flooded stumps. This is where I landed big bass honors with a 2.75lb fish. The water here didn't seem to be moving. We flipped some bushes as we exited the area only to pick up a couple big goggle eye. We ran two more spots look for moving water. We found ourselves punching hyacinths around wood and picking up a couple keepers. Here we flipped the Cajun Lures Bayou Bug in custom Red Bug color. We targeted isolated wood in the current to pick up our 5th fish and made a cull. By this time the weather was getting pretty nasty. To get out of the wind we ran back to our protected area we caught in that morning hoping for a better bite to cull a couple squeakers. I lightened my weight on my flipping stick. Draggin the Bayou Bug now, we picked up 3 more keepers. Only one good enough to cull. We finished the tournament in 2nd place. Weights were 1st....9.07, 2nd....8.79, 3rd....8.55. Big Bass 2.75lb.'
