Quick Swimbait Outing - Se Wi

Recommended Posts

I took last year off of fishing (blasphemous, I know) due to a new baby and a new job. I got back into things slowly but surely late this spring and over my 4th of July vacation; caught a few dinks, nothing of substance.

I snuck away tonight to fish a local pond for an hour or so. I was determined to use only swimbaits and see what I could pull up. I recently picked up a Mattlures Hard Gill that I fished hard on my vacation, but was 0 for 1 with a big blow-up strike that missed.

Tonight I stuck a little 1lb'r on the hard gill (no pic). After 1/2 hour of the hard gill, I decided to throw the 3:16 Baby Wake. I lucked out and picked one up a few years ago for a song, but hadn't really fished it yet. I fished the weedbeds and points that I could see around the pond and stuck this healthy 2-12 LMB:

All in all, a great night fishing. Now I just need more time to throw those swimbaits! :) (And more money to buy more!)

Nice healthy fish! Just further proof that you don't have to live were 10 pounders are common to be successful with swimbaits!
