Yes. 7' Medium Moderate JCT70MTM. It was on sale for $80 so I decided to try it out. I have it paired up with a Lews Tournament MB. It's my trap combo and seems to work well at it. It'll keep them pinned as long as I don't go MLF on them. Caught my 7 lb PB with the combo!

Happy Birthday! Nice combo!

I just woke up to the sound of deck furniture getting thrown around by high winds. Took a look outside to find horizontal snow flurries whipping past the street lights! Makes me doubly happy I was able to sneak in a 45 minute session right after work and right before babysitting our brand new grandaughter. The Shadow Rap 11 in perch does it again! 90% of my catches since December have come on this bait. This cutie came on the last, last cast. I had about 15 last casts before that one!

Always nice to end the day just after catching one.

Nice catch! Those last casts tend to linger on for a while at times. Nice that you got one on the last, last cast!

Finally got some nice enough weather to take the big man out with me Thursday. We didn't catch any big fish by my standards, but we had a lot of fun, I think that's pretty obvious.

Friday had Josh from PigPatrolTV in the boat fishing for bass and big trout. Didn't find find any big trout, but we did catch quite a few and they were bigger than what he's use to so that was good. The bass cooperated well also. Of course I caught the biggest one of the day when he had to run to the store and get another memory card for his camera 😄 Just a touch longer than my 18" board.

So nice being back out on the boat again after this winter. Local lake is clearing from all this rain, and surface temps up to 47 degrees. Threw "Ned" around a bit yesterday and managed about 15 fish in really nice conditions to be on the water in (sunny, no wind, mid 50s)...just not the greatest for catching - Lol. We made do.

Gave the ned rig a try for the first time today. I guess the fish are still a lot colder than I thought, in a small pond only managed one fish but I had to drop the ned rig right in front of his nose. 

 

Came on a green pumpkin finesse TRD. 

 

They are slowly getting bigger!

Late on Friday night one of my wading buddys asked to link up on Saturday after work. Late on Saturday afternoon I got a text from him :"No fishing for me today". We had 25-30 mph NW winds pounding in all day.  The "real feel" was 28°. The spot we were going to hit is usually a wind tunnel on breezy days, so I can't blame him. But I had a truck full of gear... so I hit a bank that I've been doing well at. Unfortunately it's on the SE side of the lake. It was just about impossible to thrown anything with the wind blasting straight at me. Luckily I had my frog rod in the truck. Tied on a 1/2 oz Terminator spinner bait and went to work. It cut the wind pretty good. I bombed it out into a spot that was wall to wall pads last season. It's just random stalks at this point. Slow rolled it just above the bottom and let it clip whatever was in the way. Then BAM, fish on. This guy really wanted it. The hit and run was violent. I thought it might be a monster at first, but it was just a nice one for a day that I thought was going to be a bust for sure. The water is still quite cold at 39° degrees. But the last few have had fat bellies, so they're getting ready for the spawn regardless. I left with frozen hands and a frozen smile.

Earlier this year I purchased some sierbert spinnerbaits based on some of the reviews I have seen on this form amd so far they are workong out very well. Yesterday a rough day of fishing was salvaged by a black and blue double colorado spinnerbait.. She was 4 lbs 15oz and absolutely smashed it.

me and my grandson caught 7 spotties from the dock, before the rain set it in, on the first day of spring break 👍

Fished a pond for a little bit after work. It usually doesn't produce many but the quality is really good. It was opposite this time with 10 fish in less than an hour and only 1 of the usual more quality bites.

To be honest I find a fast bite with pounders (I call em "fun size") is as enjoyable as the occasional big one. I fish a couple of ponds that produce scads of them. I like to target them with light spinning. My favorite lure in warm weather is an 04 Sub Wart. Found a bunch of them on e-bay.

Took the yak out today for another bass'n adventure. I wound up catching 2 of those 1-1.2lb feisty dinks along with 1 decent one. My lucky Trap once again came thru for me. I tried some other offerings, but had no takers in the areas I like to fish.

 

3.69 lbs

Had to do a quick weigh and photo as she was a bleeder. Luckily the photo came out decent at least.

Last Thursday my friend asked me to fish Candlewood with him on Sunday on his totally jammin' bass boat! But, my brother had already asked me the night before if I wanted to get blown around on the jon boat on a very skunky lake on the same day. Oh, the dilema! Skunk Lake it was. This lake is tough, as anyone who fishes it will tell you. A huge, feature-less, bowl. Zero cover. Zero lillies, so no lingering stalks from last season. But it has some bottom contour and good fish if you can find 'em. Some dude got an 8lb Largemouth last fall. Not too shabby for the northeast. But I had it in my head that we should go all out for smallmouth. So we did. The wind was blowing so hard that the battery was merc'd in about 2 1/2 hours. Paddling against a headwind in a jon boat through rollers for a mile is invigorating. Avoid it if you can! In the end we found 'em. No whoppers, but the fight was still rediculous. Smallies really, really, really, don't want to be caught! Good times.

Got out for a little while before dark so I stayed close to home ( The North end of my lake ) Caught 8 fish , all on Zoom super flukes ,  in watermelon slice. Had several violent blowups as it hit the water, or as I pulled the fluke through grass or brush.

The biggest was 3.6. ( First pic.)large.20190328_195602-966x1288.jpg.25597db0652b9896b138c68592aed156.jpglarge.20190328_190150-606x808.jpg.f8c1708804f50dd0372f55c7193bb600.jpglarge.20190328_195032-966x1288.jpg.3cb738e8f64225bb9db955746d7fe56b.jpg

Lots of fish this weekend, some of them were bigger than this one, but none of them were my first smallmouth of the year like this one. In the back of a mud bottom cove right where I expected him to be 🙄
