4Th Of July Weekend Bassin'.

Recommended Posts

Had Friday off so I headed up to the summer place Thu. night. Got out for a few hours and the high winds limited where I could fish but I got into 'em pretty good. Got this one and several others on a wacky rigged senko:SDC10496Large.jpg

Just before dark that evening, got this guy:

The next morning I got out just before first light and the conditions changed and I was able to throw the Rage Shad in the heavier cover. Got a bunch of keepers and had a few misses. Right before I went in for breakfast, I got these 2 on consecutive casts:

The big one went 5-11.

Went back out for a bit after breakfast and hit the docks. Got this guy under a pontoon boat and a couple keepers on a weightless Rage Craw. The fish absolutely attacked the bait and almost yanked the rod out of my hands.:

That night my dad got in on the action. All he ever fishes is a 4" Sluggo on 8lb line. We were in some pretty nasty stuff. First he had a 5+ jump and throw the hook. Then I heard a big slurp and he had another hawg on.

It wrapped around a couple pads and I tried to go over and get it but as I reached down to pull up the pads I heard him yell "s**t"! and his line broke.

He seemed to lose interest after that. Here he is with one that didn't get away. He was still ticked and didn't want me to take the picture:

The next morning I hit the docks with the Rage Craw again and man do they nail that thing. Got a bunch but no monsters.:

Great couple days and it was good to get out with the old man. Rage Craw under boats and docks was new to me but seemed to work great. Still love the Rage Shad as #1 though. Wacky rigged senko kills but alot of shorts.

Great outing. Funny how the old guys get ticked when they lose one. Used to happen to my dad & now it happens to me. ;)

Great job Cousin...... Happy to see that you got Uncle Yensen out on the water too.

I'd PM you back with how my summer has been going, but there isn't much sense in trying to depress you too! Let's just say that I've been on the water more up here than I was at the road trip. One day more, but at least it is more!

A little prayer for your Aunt Yo Yensen wouldn't hurt. :(

I must be an old guy too then Dwight. I get ticked with the best of them when I lose one, even a small one.

P.S.

Send me a P.M. if you ever need a net man for a day or two for those huge smallies your'e always catching!

Hey Kyle-

I'm still looking for that perfect spot where I can pitch a crankbait into a bush and pull out a 4 pounder! :blink:

I'm guessing you've been using a shakey head a bit more lately.
