We knew fishing would be tough at Bartletts Ferry for the Potato Creek Bassmasters tournament last Saturday. It took only 11 pounds to win a local tournament a week prior with 47 teams fishing. In local tournaments like that, there are usually some very good fishermen that know the lake well. They’ll fish it several days a week to keep up with what will catch bass.

In our tournament, 18 fishermen cast from 7 a.m.- 3 p.m. to land 51 12-inch keeper bass weighing about 64 pounds. There were three five bass limits and two fishermen didn’t weigh in a fish.
