Best Day On The Bank Ever?!

Recommended Posts

On Saturday, a buddy of mine convinced me to go bank fishing with him on a public reservoir. Normally this time of year I'm more in favor of fishing from the boat, but I knew my buddy had caught a few good one's from the bank at this body of water recently, so I agreed to tag along. 

 

The day started out slow. It was pretty warm and windy, and bright sunny skies. The kind of day that you'd expect those cold water fish to push up to the banks because of the warmer water. I started the day dragging a Siebert Outdoors Sniper jig around just trying to get a feel for the bottom and see if anything would bite. After an hour or so of no luck, I switched to my spinning rod, which was rigged up with a Megabass 3" Hazedong Shad on a 1/8oz Okashira screwhead jig. I started swimming that little swimbait around the edges of the bank and I finally got a bite. My drag started singing and I thought it was too lose, so I tightened it down. About the time I got done doing that, the fish showed himself and I knew I was hooked into a good one. I eventually landed what would be the biggest fish of the day, a 4lb female that was full of eggs. We kept fishing along that bank and I caught 2 more on that little swimbait but they were only around 12" in size. My buddy also caught one smaller fish as well. 

 

Things started getting slow and the day was wearing on. I was ready to head home, but my buddy suggested we drive around the reservoir and fish the opposite side. We got over there and found an opening between the trees where we could set up shop. My buddy was throwing a swimbait on one side, and I was dragging that same Sniper jig from Sieberts around on the other side. I quickly found some deep water that was very rocky. After about my third cast of dragging my jig over those rocks, my line went totally slack and I knew I had a bite. I was rewarded with a 3.5 pound fish. I then caught 3 more fish in that same spot over my next 5 casts. I quickly told my buddy to put on a jig and start fishing this spot. In total, we caught 10 fish combined in this one little spot, and lost 2-3 more. All of which were in the 2-3.5 pound range. 

 

All in all, I feel confident in saying that this was my most successful day on the bank that I've ever had. I'm not normally one to drag a jig around, but I wore all the paint off the head of that little 5/16oz Sniper jig.

Great day. I went out for 3-1/2 hours on sat without a single bite.
