No.
2. Did you establish any solid pattern from a typical bass post spawn season, were you surprised at the stage the fish were in?
Never really found a pattern at all. All of our fish were scattered and bites were spaced apart. Didn't find many fish relating to cover... yet
3. Did you find fish in the typical past spots you fish from previous seasons?
Not really. As the fish were not really relating to cover in our areas, we spent most of our time fishing for random fish that were probably transitioning between deeper water and shallower areas.
4. Did you get to test out any new product during the event? What worked, or what were you happy with?
Nothing new
5. Will you return for the next event on Mississippi in August, and what adjustments will you make if any?:
Yes and will focus more on fish relating tighter to cover as summer pattern will be in full swing
