Tournament Report: Hawg Hunters – Saddle Lake

Saddle Lake



Water Temp: 64*F

The club hit the water at 6am with one boat showing up a little late. It seemed as though most boats began on the landing side of the lake with a few following us onto the west side of the lake. The pressure was on quickly when a couple hours had passed and we hadn’t received a single bite from anything, not even a panfish. To add onto the pressure my uncle motored over to mention his two 16″ largemouth caught on spinnerbaits, which we had been throwing for around two hours at this point. Though we didn’t see anybody boat any fish we knew that somebody somewhere was on them, this added even more pressure.

Spending the remaining time on the east side of the lake we decided to finally toss out some rubber, not thirty minutes into fishing texas rigged rubber did I catch a 13 15/16″ largemouth. Finally, a “DUH” moment! With barely half an hour left in the event my alarm goes off telling me to prepare to head in, my father casted out his Bruiser Baits Rad Shad tipped with a 1/4oz bullet weight and hooked into a 2lb 10oz largemouth, helping us get off of the depression of the day.

A big congrats to Sau for catching the big bass for the day! Hope you enjoy your brand new Advantage Spinnerbait!
