Found a new honey hole...

Recommended Posts

Hi folks...

 

After using spinnerbaits and plugs for many many years i dedicated this summer to learning the art of plastics...senkos t-rigged (weightless) and wacky, baby bass colored fluke weightless t-rig and yum worm weightless t-rig (the skinny one...can't remember the name)...

 

So in 3 days my wife and I caught 3 big ones ( her a 5 and me a 5 and a 5.5) and i caught a few 1 to 2 lbers and a few dinks) 2 or 3 hours each day.

 

I can't upload pics of all of them in this post but these are the 2 big ones.

 

All summer so far i either got no hits or whiffed every hit i got til 3 days ago.

 

My wife had a great FIRST TIME bass fishing. She caught hers on a spinnerbait and it exploded on her spinnerbait as she was speeding up to lift over the weeds in front of us. She trout fished all her life up north.

 

Feels good! I have no boat so all from shore and these are in a very small pond...

 

I read the forums for tips on plastics constantly and all of y'alls advice is coming together in how i fish. Spinnerbaits were my go to lure but i wanted to learn plastics.

 

Thanks for all of y'alls knowledge and willingness to share it

Thanks y'all...put all back but 2..fed my family with nature's food.

 

Actually the first fish I've ever kept...my wife convinced me to let her make delicious fish tacos.

I caught the 5.5 on a $12 Shakespeare Reverb Wally special with 8lb mono.

 

It hung me up in the middle of the pond but I was patient and worked it up and out. Was a nice 7 or 8 minute battle!
