Windy Day Bass

Even for December in Mississippi, the weather’s been great and last weekend was certainly no exception. Saturday was a beautiful day and even with the approaching weather on Sunday, you couldn’t ask for a better day to be outside. Having made a dent in the honey-do list on Saturday, I couldn’t resist an invitation to head to out to a private lake in Mendenhall to catch some pre-front, windy day bass. I’m certainly glad I did.
