1st RageTail Experience with Fish :)

Recommended Posts

So I decided to hit a local pond today. Water temp is still 49 degrees  so I was going to work some cover really slow. There is a ledge around the whole pond that drops from 8-10 foot to 30 foot in about 10 feet or so. Wasn't marking any fish in the deeper areas so I started to pitch some downed trees and stumps. Was using a Blue Rage Craw dipped in JJ's Magic and 1/4 Oz Evolution Jig.

I lost the first fish I hooked up on in the first tree I hit. Probably 2-3lbs. I saw a little hole about 2 feet in diameter between branches and I knew there had to be a fish in it. I pitched it right in and Thump! Set the hook and the drag went screamin.

I was like crap! I didn't want it that big, I was using 12 lb flouro and a 6.5 med. So after about 5 mintues of finesse her out of the branches and stuff I pulled out a nice 4lb 10 oz. Good way to start the year in Idaho :)

Don't tell anyone, but Rage Tails are the only plastics you will find in my tackle bag these days.
