Winning ways for Falcon

Terry Scroggins: Texas-rigging a 10-inch plum YUM worm and Carolina-rigging an 8-inch green pumpkin YUM lizard.

Jason Williamson: 10 1/2-inch Zoom Old Monster worms, plum-colored, and an 8-inch Zoom lizard, both Texas-style and Carolina-rigged with 1/2-, 3/4- and 1-ounce Kanji tungsten weights.

Ben Matsubu: two 7-inch Senko worms with their ends cut, then melted together end-to-end with a cigarette lighter. The resulting 13-or-so-inch worm, Carolina-rigged

Scott Campbell: Texas-rigging a 5-inch Senko worm and a 10-inch Berkley Power Worm: blue fleck when it's overcast, and green pumpkin in the sunshine.

Casey Ashley: Texas-rigging an 11-inch, strawberry-colored Mister Twister worm

Rick Morris: began the week flipping bushes, but switched to Texas-rigging blue fleck- and motor oil-colored Berkley Power Worms

Mike Iaconelli: a 1-ounce Berkley Gripper Jig with a Twin Tail trailer and a Baby E-weighted swimbait, both tilapia-colored and dragging "just about everything" on a Carolina rig with a 1-ounce Tru-Tungsten weight

Paul Elias: a Mann's 20-plus and a Luhr Jensen Hot Lips in greenback chartreuse and brownback chartreuse color patterns. Elias has also targeted bass that are busting shad on shallow points with a Mann's C4 crankbait. Like everyone else, he's also Carolina-rigging with a Mann's Hardnose Mosquito Hawk

Scott Rook: Carolina-rigging quite a bit, but he's also throwing a 3/4-ounce football head jig with a Berkley Power Hawg trailer. On the Carolina rig, he's using 10-inch Berkley Power Worms and Berkley Power Hawgs, weighted with either a 1 1/4- or 1 1/2-ounce tungsten weight

Byron Velvick: 10-inch watermelon- and motor oil-colored Berkley Power Worms, both Texas-style and on a Carolina rig

Mark Davis: a Zoom 8-inch watermelon seed lizard. He's also caught fish on a 7-inch Strike King Stir Stix in green pumpkin.

Aaron Martens: Carolina-rigging several different soft plastics: the bigger the better. He's used 8-inch Zoom lizards, big Senkos, Aaron's Magic Robo worms and 10-inch Berkley Power Worms

Funny quote yesterday from Ben Matsubu who finished 9th at Falcon:

"I had a rough day today because every time Big Show (Terry Scroggins) would catch a fish the lake level would drop about 5 inches."

;D

And everyone says the Texas Rig/Carolina Rig is Ole School & has given way to Drop Shotting/Finesse.

NOT  ;)

Drop shotting ranks up there with stop smoking for me. I don't start C/R till I try for some fast action first. I mostly stay with the 8" Green pumpkin or Pumpkin seed/ Char tail. Can't do much with the 1oz jig either, when I feel that much weight on the line I'm fixing to set the hook.

Don't know which is funnier, that quote or the bait he was throwing.

T-rigging and c-rigging....I wouldn't call them "old school". I would call them "classic". They're just hard to beat in the post spawn on lakes the feature good structure fishing.

That would be "classic old school" techniques.
