Again with the Wind and Snow?? The April Snow and Wind didn’t stop the Joe Bass anglers at the 2nd stop of the Burton’s Bait & Tackle Smithville Lake Division. The teams were greeted with a beautiful calm morning but by 8am the weather turned just nasty. 15 to 30 MPH winds with gusts up into the 40mph range. With temps starting at 30 degrees and never getting above the mid 40s for the day. AND Snow.

Most of their fish came on a Spro Mcstick with 10 pound Sunline Sniper as well they caught some on a BFE and a chatterbait paired with a big bite kamikaze swim bait on 20 pound Sunline Sniper.
