Cool Pic ~ Daffy didn't stand a chance.

And I usually 'learn' something usefull when I have video of me losing fish.

I used to say "well, there's not much I could have done different" - but the video almost always tells a different story -

Of course, topwater's a separate deal.

I'm looking forward to checking it out -

This one was back in a little hole in the water willows and when the line popped off the willows, it just came off. I like to think it was just one of those fish that I did everything right and still lost, but I'm sure I could have done something different. 

 

I agree 100% about learning from watching myself though. I've cured some bad habits I didn't even know I had from watching myself fish on my videos and also been able to go back and break down the patterns I was on without even realizing I was on them. 

 

Right after the 2:00 mark is where I missed the good one on the Fruck. I did make up for it by catching a pretty decent one on it about 30 minutes later.

This is a couple days old, but it was one of the last times I went out and one of the best fishing days of my life.

 

It was my first frogging attempt of the year so my drag on my reel was still completely loose and I missed about 8 blowups on only a few more casts right at the start of the morning. When I finally realized the drag was loose, after a fish had held on to the frog and pulled out some drag and then spit it out, I started putting them in the boat, and they were good ones! After the sun got high I switched over to a magnum Christie Critter and started pitching it as far back in the reeds as possible and was glad I did! I caught my new PB for this state at 6.3 lbs (6 lbs 4.8 oz) and my best five fish were right under 28 lbs (2 of the 5+ didn't get recorded on the GoPro).

 

Then I went back 3 days later after a little rain and cold front and found them roaming in the lilies with a black and blue chatterbait. Best 5 for that day were ~23 lbs.

My post spawn smallies wouldn't respond to reaction baits shallow (10' - 15') this cool June morning, but a few were receptive deep (20'? 25'?) to bear on a ball.

That is a hefty hawg you got there. Congrats on the catch.

Finally my first Frog bass, or I should call half-frog for this year or ever.

My lake doesn't have a lot vegetation like you guys just weed and still not tall enough.

I had been trying this spinkler frog a few times this year, got a few blew but never land one. Finally this morning with overcast sky, caught 2 back to back and a few more on Zoom Magnum Fluke.

This is also video of Friday Morning that I went for a pre-fish chatterbait. The funny thing is I took a guy from other local fishing forum out on Thursday on my Jon boat. This was pretty much same area and same type lures, I even took him to my "honey hole" all I caught was one small one on Super Fat Ika, he did just alright caught 5 decent size ones.

I think I'm cursed to be a lone woof, hardly success on my boat alone or with others. The worst part was, I hook up two fish at the end with chatterbait and both come undone by the boat.

Picked up an original wooden Musky JB off eBay a couple weeks ago. Swapped out hooks and ready to try and land one on this big old piece of history. First attempt last night resulted in half a dozen blowups, but no hookups. Still fun for the first time out. We'll keep trying until I find one big enough to actually eat this thing 😎

By "last night" I'm presuming you meant after dark.  I'd be scared to death of that thing.  LOL

Yep - I ain't swinging unless I feel the fish first. At 1.25 ounces, the last thing I need is a face full of Jitterbug and a trip to the emergency room :P but I SO want to catch one on it - lol

They're a neat bait. I have one I use to fish a lot hanging in my shop that is all scratched up from night fishing and big pond bass. The first time I fished it my friends dad was laughing and asking if I was fishing with a beer can, right about the time a big one crushed it, told him that big one must have been thirsty. Can't remember if it was that one or a regular jitterbug that I had an owl pick up and fly off with while I was night fishing too. Hooking an owl is not a good time.

Got the first one (only one so far - lol) on the big JB last night about 15 min after sunset. I'll keep messing with it on some other waters as I get the chance.

Had that happen with a buzzbait when creek fishing for smallmouth.  Bird got lassoed around the leg. I reeled him in and both of us didn't know what to do as he just stood there on the gravel bar with me. Then I witnessed something that I bet no one has ever seen. He got in the water and took off swimming. (I opened my bail) Looked like a Fisher-Price duck with its wings spinning.  Reeled him back and reluctantly cut the line leaving the lure attached.  He swam off again across the creek and disappeared in the brush.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads on here and also to all the moms who have to be daddy too, if there's any on here. Well for Father's Day, today, My niece, Amber, her husband Jacob, their 2 kids Brantley and Ariel and my brother in law Warren all went to Cross Lake this morning to do some fishing from his boat. We had lots of fun, got a few bites with nothing to show. Got to try my new baits. Threw the prop frog, had a blowup, but somehow he missed it. Threw my chatterbaits, nothing doing again. So I threw my new 3/8oz green pumpkin swinging swim jig with a bama bug Rage Craw trailer it got bit but the fish came off. My hand was wet and slipped when I set the hook, had him hooked for about a second or two but couldn't keep my hand dry enough to quit slipping. Was a nice one, definitely had some weight to it. Oh well, we can't catch em all...lol! Stayed with that bait since it got hit the hardest and it was smashed by this 3lb 3oz hawg. That's Brantley my great nephew in one of the pics holding her up. He's 5 years old and thought it was totally awesome. Wasn't long afterwards, everybody but me wanted to leave and go home. Needless to say, I was out voted. Hope you fathers caught a hawg or better today! God Bless! 😎
