Tried Something New Today- Punching Mats!

Recommended Posts

I never ever did any sort of punching before. I was watching Bub Tosh's videos on youtube last night, and I thought, why not try it out? Seems like fun. I got some 1/2 oz weights, bobber stoppers and beads, a pack of Gammy flipping hooks, a pack of Ike's Devil Spears from Dicks Sporting Goods in the morning; and hit a local lake full of duckweeds in the afternoon. I don't have a punching/ flipping rod; so I used my casting jig setup: Powell Max 753/ Citica 201D 7:1/ 55 lb Samurai.

Caught a fish on the second cast, but I forgot to take a pic. After that I caught three more, and missed a couple. I need to get used to feeling bites under the mat; I'm more of a line-watcher than a bite-feeler. Also, the 1/2 oz weight was waay too light as I found within a few minutes.

Here are the second, third and fourth bass. Yes, I know they are very small, but I tried a new technique, and to my surprise I caught a few fish! I'm super-happy right now.

Catching a fish on your second cast with the new technique? Very impressive. Learning new ways to fish should make you a more well-rounded angler in the future. I'm trying some new techniques myself. Congrats to you
