Free Jigs from the roadtrip = PB for 09!!

Recommended Posts

Well I went out a couple days ago and tied on one of the evolution jigs I got from the tackle pack given to us at the road-trip. The result was some very solid fish! Here was the first fish for the day weighing in just under 5 pounds.

I got lucky with the fish above because I'm still not sure when she hit. I thought I was caught between a couple limbs and so I gave it a fairly good tug but not a set the hook swing. I then saw my line dart to the left and so I set the hook in the opposite way. It put up a good fight and I think I was lucky to land it with possibly letting the fish know I was there before a proper hook set could be applied. Of course the fish may have just snapped it up comming off those limbs.

I caught three more for the few hours we were out and all of them keepers. I found them pretty tight to cover even though it was a cloudy day. I took my time picking apart trees I could find and nailed this fish and another not pictured in the same area.

My pops also caught his PB crappie weighing in at 1 pound 7oz and this picture doesn't do that crappie justice. The was no way I could even get close to wrapping my hands around it.

So in closing to Glenn and the sponsors thanks for the jigs and the rest of the tackle!!!!

Glad to see the jigs paid off for you.  I have not gotten to fish since the road trip but plan to try the jigs when I do (as soon as the garden is planted).  I enjoyed getting to spend a windy Wednesday with you on the road trip.  My confidence level with cranks baits is definetly greater now.
