We know we don't know a lot about fishing so we thought our partners at Bassmaster might like you to be informed about this weekends Elite Series. Here part of a blog from Mark Hicks.


 Thanks to a mild winter, the weather during the Bassmaster Elite at Cherokee Lake, the first of 2017, will not be as frigid as it normally is in early February. But it will hardly be balmy, either.

While there may be daytime highs in the low 60s during the week, some mornings could dip well below freezing. There is also a possibility of cold rain.

Such conditions mean that what the Elite Series pros wear at Cherokee is as important as which lures they tie on. It’s hard to focus on fishing when you’re shivering and you can’t feel your hands and feet. And, if you don so much clothing that you look like the Pillsbury Doughboy, all that apparel hinders your movements and wears you out.
