1St Trip Of 2012

Recommended Posts

I decided to take a vacation day today to start my 2012 fishing year. I started at the same spot I caught one fish last weekend. It is a ledge that runs out into a creek channel. It drops from about 6 feet down to 13 or so. Then down to 15 feet where it drops into the creek. The ledge and the channel from a "T" Anyway, I started draggin a football jig with no luck. I then cranked and rattle trapped my way into the back of the creek, nothin. Then I flipped a Rage Craw along a steep bluff bank, nadda. Soooo, I went out into the channel and fished a couple other drop offs, both from about 6 feet down to 18 or so, zip. So now I am thinking I should have just went to work!! I decide to finish my day at the spot I started, the ledge/channel "T." I made the first cast with a Big O football jig, 3/4 in Falcon Craw with a matching Rage Craw. As soon as I dragged the jig over the ledge I felt the tap and saw my line jump. So I swung hard, and, my drag slipped big time, guess I forgot to reset it!!! I did manage to hook the fish, most likely thanks to that sweet Owner hook. Pretty good fight, decent bass, nothing special. It sure beats the dinks I normally catch! This was the only fish I caught. I consider it a success anyway, me fishing deeper water, away from the bank, without a visible target is something new. Terrible pic I know, but it is what it is!!

Yowsir! Good way to start the year and hopefully made the vacation day worth it. Always good to start with a fish instead of a skunk...:lol:

Good start, Red. And not a bad picture considering you were by yourself. Big-O will love that hat.

It sure is!! I am going to have to place another order with Siebert soon, I donated 5 or 6 jigs to Lake Waco over the last two weeks. I have plenty of brush jigs still but I am almost out of the footballs!!
