Great afternoon! Increased confidence in hard baits!

Recommended Posts

So, I've been at this bass fishing thing for about two years and my confidence started in Texas rigged worms, moving to weightless sticks and flukes, and then finally to jigs and smaller paddle tailed swimbaits.

 

I've been a skeptic about power fishing for a while, but today I got on them and a combination of cooling temperatures and the H2O Xpress Ultimate Jerk Shad and H2O Xpress CRS Crankbait produced my first ever 30+ fish day.  Nothing exceeded two pounds, but it was a great action packed afternoon from 5:15-6:30 PM.

 

I caught 8 on 8 casts bouncing the squarebill off the bricks of the pond overflow drain, and also fired up a school with the jerk shad before that.

 

I am now a believer in a jerkbait and the crankbait, and very happy to gain confidence in the lower priced academy brand.

That sounds great. That’s my kind of day lots of action. I don’t mind if their on the smaller side. 30 1-2 pounders is quite a day.

Sounds like a pretty fun day. Square bill is a must, but as temps start dropping, love fishing a suspending rogue!

They wanted the jerkbait ripped super aggressively with a constant reel accompanying it.  The way the H2O Jerk Shad moves impresses me greatly, super erratic.  I was slashing the water so hard you could hear the line whip through the air and bubbles would rise with every downward slash.  I just won a new Fuego on eBay in 6.3:1 for 51 bucks, shipped, and scored an 80 dollar rod for 70 shipped.  Ready to get my jerk on as it continues cooling.

 

They would absolutely annihilate the squarebill on a deflection or on the pause.  Five quick turns and a pause absolutely brutalized them.

 

Good to see your Georgian ass back on here, @NittyGrittyBoy, how you been bro?

I like to give it a *jerk-jerk, pause(2-3secs) and let them slam it!

I've touched them up a tad with that retrieve before.  They weren't having any of that yesterday, they wanted the whole world fast.  Vicious strikes.
