Tracy Watkins takes the win on Clarks Hill Lake
Thirty three anglers participated in the March 25, 2018 AFT D25 tournament at Clarks Hill Lake. The day started out at 40 degrees and raining, by the 3:30pm weigh in time the temperature had risen to 55 degrees and the sun had began to shine through the clouds. The water temps were ranging from 52-55 degrees depending upon what section of the lake you were fishing. The bite is still off a little due to the night temperatures fluctuating so much and being in the middle of the spawn.
