I learned all kind of tricks and tactics and heard lots of funny stories. Wind was rough and supposed to be worse tomorrow Same here with the wind, and fish for 5.5 hours for about 8 fish, lost a few fish. I actually observed Bass spawning for the first time though, a buck and 4-5lb fish are doing the nasty right by where I dock the boat lol. I watched them for about 30mins throughout the day. The Spring and Spawn suck, it's a combo of the fish dropping huge cheatcode bellies, the scattering of them, and really I think the most important thing, the very unstable weather. Water skyrocketed over the last few days and will continue for a several more days, I wouldn't doubt if I see close to 70 tom. Today was the first day I've seen 62+ in a couple weeks. That cold snap dropped it after I think the first big Spawn or two happened. It's so much work to catch fish in the Spring and early Fall. It sucks too because you get the most beautiful days for fishing during those times. One quality today on the Jackhammer/5.5" Spunk Shad...3ish Spot. Those big 5.5" Spunk Shads on a Jackhammer are really effective. Dozen fish including a 5.3 over the last week since stopping the Berkeley Slobberknocker experiment. Got it all on sale, but with two models, and then 4 packs of the Power Stingers, it's like $50 MSRP. You lose some, you win some. I think it's important for me to mention the baits I lose money on because of how much I boast about "magical" baits. For clearer water I still think they might be better than a Jackhammer, or other brandname Chatterbaits. They are right between a beautiful Swimjig, and a Jackhammer if that makes sense. Finally, getting more and more action on the buzzbait, and the Shimano produced the first fish of the day. 16 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
