buzzed bait

Shoalie Sunday

Recommended Posts

Hit the Chattahoochee yesterday with my wife and couple friends.  I was in the yak and my wife was trying out her new paddleboard.  The water was wayyyyyy low, but we managed to make the float from Johnson's Ferry to Cochran Shoals in good time.  I was tossing a wacky senko and a Beetle spin with a chartreuse yamamoto grub for the bait.  They liked the beetle spin!  It's a lot of fun throwing that bait on the Phenix Recon 2 683 casting rod with my Curado 51e/Yumeya BFS Spool and 15lb braid.  Effortless casts will make the bait soar on that setup.

I managed to snag 3 nice little shoalies and saw 1 monster bass in the shallows, not entirely sure which species but have no doubt it would have broken 4 if not 5 pounds which is no slouch in the river!  First bass was HUNGRY!  He had a mean little gut already and had a crawdad in his throat that was half his size!  On top of that, he wanted more food and smacked my beetle spin! Pretty cool to see that!  Had a great outing and got off the river right as it turned cloudy and was about to rain.
