A mild cold front moved through just prior to the beginning of the fifth West Region event, on Hubbard Creek Reservoir. Light north winds didn’t seem to phase the Bass as much as it did the anglers. It didn’t seem to bother Kelly Hudson, he brought to the scales 25.25lbs. for the win. Kelly reported catching his fish on a Square Billed crank bait. In second place was Bobby Maynard. Bobby brought in 22.22lbs. I didn’t here how Bobby caught his stringer. In the third and final place was Brian Bollinger. Brian also relied on crank baits to capture his string of 19.29lbs. Kelly Hudson also claimed the Big Bass honors with a 7.76lb. beauty. Most anglers reported catching their fish right on the banks to the first three feet. Water temps stayed around the 64 to 66 degree range, looks like the spawning is definitely on. We will see you next at Lake LBJ. Until then , keep your hooks wet.
The West Region heads for Hubbard Creek Reservoir this weekend. Low lake levels should make for crowded areas and an interesting tournament. Fishing has been reported as good with lots of bites. The full moon and the rising water temps should have the Bass moving into the spawning pattern. Tournament headquarters is at the Ridge Motel with sign up and check in Friday evening from 5pm till 8pm. We will see you there.

The 2013 West Texas Jr. Bassmasters have finalized thier tournament schedule for next season. After considering current lake levels and imput from the competitors, West Region Youth Director Jim Brown determined that lake Amistad was probably the best choice for youth tournaments. “I think if the drought continues into 2013, conditions could get dangerous on O.H. Ivie, so I’m gonna set the points chase on Amistad. I think we’ll be ok there and the kids really like that lake.” Jim has also been creative with the formats for each tournament, so it should be a lot of fun for the junior anglers. You can find all of the information and the schedule on the youth tab of the West Region.
