Southwest MS Bass Club fished its second tournament of the 2019-20 season at Lake Bruin, La., with 22 teams consisting of 36 anglers.
After announcing a few reminders, Johnny Rials asked Josh Simpson to lead us in prayer. Calling out flights was Bruce Knippers, and blast-off began at 6:40 a.m., with an official weigh-in time at 3 p.m.
Lake Bruin fishing conditions were 49-54 degree air temps, cloudy all day, water temps 53-54 degrees, water clear to stained, and wind out of the NNE at 3-7 mph.

1. Taking first place for back-to-back wins with Southwest and big bass, John Bruce had five fish weighing in at 14.11 pounds and big bass weighing 3.75. JB said he caught his once again on a secret jig.. Why fix it if it’s not broken? He caught his mainly in skinny water.
