    The winter of 2014 was extreme virtually everywhere, and Grand Lake and the tri-state area of Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas was not spared from the deep freeze. I live about 35 minutes from the lake, and during the 40-plus years I’ve been fishing Grand, only on two occasions have I seen the lake almost completely frozen over. One of those times was this winter.

    Barnett's slow tactics top co-angler field in Rayovac Texas Division
    MANY, La. – Apparently, Toledo Bend’s largemouth bass don’t read fishing magazines, because if they did, they’d know that on warm March days with lots of sun and not a lot of wind they’re supposed to be heavy into the bedding routine and snapping at anything that encroaches their space. That wasn’t exactly the case for day one the Rayovac FLW Series Texas Division tournament.
