Weather will play a key factor this week.  Projected highs are in the upper 80’s, with a significant chance of rain each day.  It appears these storms are of the typical summer variety, just standard pop up showers.  This could be enough though to impact both the anglers and the fish.

As for right now out on Pickwick Lake, it is partly cloudy with temperatures right around 80 degrees, and minimal wind.  Such conditions should give competitors the chance to get out on the water and explore the many miles of Pickwick Lake waters.

Good morning from Pickwick Lake and the city of Florence, Alabama!  Official practice for the 2018 BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Cabela’s is underway.  Anglers are out on Pickwick lake looking to find the right pattern that can produce a championship winning bag.

Be sure to keep track of the live blog in the coming days.  We will provide updates, and share pictures from on the water as anglers  continue to practice.  There are a lot of great things in store for this week.  From activities and programs put on by various sponsors, to official registration, this is going to be a fun filled week for these collegiate anglers.  Stay tuned today, and throughout the rest of the week for more coverage from here in Florence.
