Another great morning (and afternoon)

Recommended Posts

I went to the lake that produced a couple PBs lately. I managed three very small dinks before the notherly wind blew me right off the lake. Not wanting to waste a day off, I went to my friends' small pond because it's in a low-lying area. It's my go-to when it's windy. The water was muddy and colder from day-long rain and temps in the 40's. But it warmed into the 60's the last couple days. I caught a 5.5 lb, two 3 lb. (I weighed them all), (3) in the 1-2 lb range and lost one bigger than the 5.5 pounder. This is a place that used to only have dinks. I don't know what has changed, but the average has really taken off the last couple years. If i didn't know better I'd think they're being fed. Here's a pic of the 5.5 lb. The owner was walking up when i caught it so i got him to take a pic. He was about as excited as me. They didn't know until this summer they were growing some future trophies. Of course, I never take any out. This pace will be a great winter alternative because it's sheltered. The bait was, once again, @cadman's custom black/blue ultimate grass jig with Chigger Craw trailer. This bait has been absolutely killing it for me lately. I'm well on my way to becoming a jig fanatic!
