Small bags and tough fishing....and Harris is not known for its frog bite.  The weather here is going to be rough for the next few days.

A few monsters will be caught off beds, but with rain on Friday and cold/windy after that there will probably be fewer limits. My club fished Harris 2 months ago and not many boats weighed anything in.  The weather was horrible, but I've always thought Lake Harris was a tough place to fish.

My only prediction in this tournament is whoever wins, they're preferred bait of choice will probably be an ugly looking crankbait.

They always predict "record breaking" fishing now.  I think maybe Peter T. will have a good tournament.

Thats a good choice he is always good in Florida. But I have a system this year. I pick Van Dam every time. So I know I will at least get one or two tournaments right. ;)

The big bags will come from Harris cranking offshore..If they can find shell bars with a mix of eel grass the bags will be 20 lbs, but most of those guys are going to try and flip...either Peter T or KVD would be my favorite because they will work offshore most of the time.

well said lee. a frog bite is not gonna happen on harris. if it does, it will be a surprise. this tourny will be won in the canals or at the openings where the lake meets the canals. i'm with you lee it will be tough. the florida boys should do well, scroggins has a great chance.

Just read that they are not expecting big bags any longer...due to an unexpected cold front as it seems.
As for the canals, it appears a lot of good limits were caught there in past tourneys, but they have been doing a lot of work on them.

Any local here has Info on the water level ?

yeah water level=low ...but fishin is fine, although for the front coming through, it may be tough. either the winner is gonna pull some huge bedding fishies from.. :-X.. or someones gonna pull a huge bag shallow crankin. i'm :-X because i know where boyd duckett, scroggins, g-man and Omori are fishin, my buddy 'accidently' pulled a 8lber in front of them..
