Well, good news...bad news...
Bad first - The first Pamunkey Mini Series Tournament, scheduled for Feb 21st, has been cancelled due to extremely poor ramp conditions. After fishing the Pamunkey on Thursday, I informed the tournament director that there was no way the Williams landing could handle 20+ boats due to the snow/ice melt. With only one way in and one way out, conditions would have deteriorated quickly with high trailer counts.
Good news. A fellow competitor in the Pamunkey Mini Series wants to go pre-fish for the James tournament on March 14th.
Expecting it to be a rather nice day on the water compared to late. Mid 50's is always welcome this time a year. I hope to find some water temps in the lower 40's. Lipless cranks, slow-roll spinnerbaits and a flippin stick will be within arms reach. Hope to find some fish transitioning out of the deeper winter holes and up onto adjacent flats to feed.
Some people think I'm crazy, but let me tell you this...conditions may be cold be this is a great time of year to catch a bass of a lifetime. Let's hope the sun shines on us tomorrow.
