Spring Report '09

Recommended Posts

Here is my report from this Spring and early Summer.

Well, one of my main goals of this Spring was to get better at jig fishing. Let's just say, I definitely did. Of course you have you pre-spawn 6 and 7 pounders that slam spinnerbaits, but overall I caught a TON of fish on jigs. My main jig and color was a Strike King Tour Grade Football Jig in the Texas Craw color, 3/8 oz., with a green pumpkin Yum chunk trailer. Now, I  fish mostly from the shore, so a lot of the cover I fish is basically right next to me. Either way, I still caught a bunch o' pigs this Spring on the jig. One day, it started raining, so my fishing buddy and I went home until it had passed. We then went out later, (by the way I had previously in the day caught a 4.5 pounder), and I caught a 5, and to cap off the whole day, a six. All on the jig. I have learned a lot about when and how to fish jigs, but that's not the end of the story. A couple weeks ago, I was using a 1/2 oz. black and blue Booyah jig, and I was fishing a long lay-down. I pulled an 8.16 off of it, my new PB. I love jigs now! I am also getting a ton of confidence in them. Now, if I could just catch some on a Senko.........
