I Think My Dad Just Became A Jig Addict

Recommended Posts

We went out for a little afternoon fishing fun and, on a whim, my dad tied on a 3/8 jig and started tossing it. Never having really fished them, I noticed he was throwing it without a trailer. I told him to tear the nose off that beat-up pit boss he just discarded and thread that sucker on, that he'd have better luck fishing it that way. And I was right!

It inspired me to tie one on and I got in some good jig'n experience as well. We both caught a good number on jigs that day. Judging from his elation, I have a feeling he'll have one tied on from now on. 

 

His fish is the biggest I've seen in a while, measuring 21" and weighing 4 lbs. 5 oz. Huge fish for that lake, where dinks are the norm. Honestly, we didn't think they grew that big there. This is the first summer we've been able to fish with electronics, and we were able to locate a decent 15 foot step between drop-offs at 8 and then down to the bottom at 22 or so. I had a feeling a fish would be hugging it - dad just got to him first.

 

I'm real happy for him, though - now I don't have to feel so bad for outfishing him all the time. ;)

I miss michigan so much. Im from the north. But ive been stationed and tdy all over the states and fished a few of the best bass lakes in the country. And still have yet to find somewhere where u can catch 3-5lb smallies and largemouth in just about every body of water. And hardly any bass pressure. To be fair though michigan has been voted number 1 abd 2 on bassmaster top 100 bass lakes. With lots of lakes down the list to.

And I don't even care about the top lakes! What I love are the tons and tons of little underfished lakes off the beaten path with public access.
