What a weekend!

Recommended Posts

Fished a small tournament this weekend with about 15 anglers on a local lake with my kayak. It was a CPR (catch, photo, release) format. After studying maps and the weather trends last week, I eliminated 70% of this small lake and had about 5 spots I was going to try. I like to cover water fast, and my confidence lures are the hollow-body frog, spinnerbaits, jigs, and above all else, a jackhammer chatterbait! I just have to take a second and say, I know everyone debates if they are worth the price. For me it is. Its the only chatterbait I throw now and average per hour, it gets me almost double what the other chatterbaits have. Love love love it!! Thanks to all of you on here, I was reading through some threads and multiple people mentioned using a berkley pit boss as a trailer. I gotta say, I've tried just about everything except for that. Well, I went out and bought a pack. At the start of the tournament, I knew it was a highly pressured lake with everyone beating the banks so i stayed about 30 feet offshore in about 10-15 ft of water and started cycling through my lures, throwing the frog only at lilypads near the bank that looked to juicy to pass up. Well 10 minutes into the tournament, I caught a 12 inch bass on the chatterbait using my favorite technique....swimming into weeds and popping it free repeatedly. Moved on about a hundred yards doing the same thing and caught the winning bass. 3lbs 7oz, 18.25 inches long in 12 ft of water. It absolutely hammered the jackhammer when I popped it out of a clump of weeds. Luckily everyone else had a horrible day with only 2 other bass being caught, so I won with those 2 bass, and I also caught 3 pickerel and a trout, all on the jackhammer chatterbait. All the other lures I threw didn't even get a sign of interest. Come to find out, only 1 other guy was fishing a chatterbait in the weeds, but it wasn't a jackhammer.

@Bass Ninja cool report! Did you rig that Pit Boss horizontally or vertically as a trailer?

Horizontal. Didn't think to try it vertical. That being said, I have been using the elaztech razor shadz for a few months which has that vertical tail profile, and its not getting as much interest as the craw/creature style profiles, at least in my area...
