Walmart BFL bass tournament to be held on Dale Hollow March 16th

The 2013 Walmart BFL season continues with four tournaments on Saturday, March 16. The Bulldog division holds its second tournament of the season on Lake Seminole, the Mississippi Division continues on Pickwick Lake, the Mountain Division opens on Dale Hollow Lake and the North Carolina division heads to Jordan Lake. Up to 400 boaters and co-anglers will be competing in each event for top awards up to $8,000 and $3,000 respectively.
The tournament on Dale Hollow Lake will be held from Star Point Resort.
Dale Hollow Lake holds the record for the world’s largest smallmouth, which weighed in just shy of 12 pounds.
But smallmouth bass aren’t the only species that are worthy of attention here. There are also plenty of hefty largemouth that roam the lake as well.
Mixed bags at weigh-in are a common occurrence. Water temperatures are currently around 50 degrees and swimbaits, jerkbaits, crankbaits and jigs are all producing on deeper structure around the lake. Warm days will push the largemouth further back into the creeks.
