Yesterday late afternoon

Recommended Posts

Well, just above freezing this AM; but, yesterday as soon as I got home from the gym, I hit the water around 4 PM in a short sleeved shirt, my Meyers Sportspal S-15 Canoe down at the boathouse ready to be dropped into Lake Athens (Texas).

 

Dead water, misty-like and overcast and I threw a Keitech shad on a new jig head I just love.

 

Too, I had never used Spike-It before but had picked up a bottle of it a day earlier, dipped the plastic tail into it . . . pretty cool. I'm not at all familiar with how it manages to stain the plastic (chartreuse/yellow) and dry so fast, and how its garlic smell is so long-lasting, but it is just so. Heck, this morning, the spare bedroom where I keep my fishing gear, where that bait is dangling from the line still? The room smells like an Italian restaurant.

 

So, i caught two nice bass in just a few minutes. I'd have likely caught 5 or so but stopped to chat with a friend at his boathouse. While we were talking, I was making casual casts, this one jumped on the hook. He took this pic but it makes the bass look smaller than it was. 

 

Yes, I was using my 5'6" St. Croix spinning rod, M power. It is the one I never leave at home when I fish from my canoe or kayak.
