Day 2 of the Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk is officially under a weather delay. Safety comes first, and this is absolutely the right call.
With that said, this will inevitably throw the anglers another curveball, but it wouldn’t be a 2021 B.A.S.S. event without a little bit of severe weather involved.
On Day 1 a good number of anglers did the majority of their damage within the first two hours on a shad spawn. How will this weather effect the longevity of the shad spawn and early bite? It seems unlikely that the amount of rain will effect the fishing, but predicting how the fish will react to thunderstorms and lightning is tough.
Regardless, time will be of the essence on Day 2. The angler that hoists the coveted Bassmaster Classic trophy over his head on Sunday evening will have made the proper adjustments on an adverse Saturday here on Ray Roberts.
