Good bait for high muddy rivers when searching for smallies in NW CT

Recommended Posts

The Yamamoto 4" hula grub. NOTHING produced yesterday in the Housatonic River but those did....I think a darker greenish brown pumpkinseed pattern. Got me a 3lb smallie in wicked current...great battle, fish and river vs me, GLX and Sustain FE. One the most rewarding battles I have been in. That fish new his territory.

Sadly, I have no pics because my Iphone was dunked last weekend :(

Thought I would share.

Thanks! That grub is a KILLER bait.

If there was ever an abrasion, stretch, merciless onslaught of line, this fight was it. There was NO place other than rocks, trees and dead timber for that fish to go and that YZ 6lb stuff stood up and took it.

Too funny! ALL of my fishing buds looked at me like I had three heads when I T-rig backwards in the river! Fish can't resist that bait head all lifelike in the current. Funny thing is, I learned that as a mistake when I first used a senko...I rigged it backwards whille yapping and said "the heck with it", next you know, fish on.

Have you tried it in lakes? Same effect? Gotta grab more FAT IKA'S

Good call.
