Big O Jigs And Rage Craws Start 2012 Off Right

Recommended Posts

today's trip featured Gman's Big O brush jig on creek channel edges surrounded by timber. turned out to be a good call. both fish came on the 5/8 oz. model. first fish came on a homegrown version of texas craw - black, brown/copper, green pumpkin, and chartreuse with a "dirty craw" rage craw trailer. there was a crappie fisherman in the area who saw me catch the fish. good news, he came over to look at the fish, then was nice enough to take a picture. bad news, it came off one of my top secret spots which probably will not be a secret any longer after today. at any rate, after taking a look at my catch, he said he was obviously fishing for the wrong species. :lol:

i have this strange agreement with myself. if i catch one good fish, i immediately stop fishing my "old" hot spots and go looking for new ones to try to learn something. this has really helped me find some great stuff in the past and it worked today too. just for argument's sake, i switched colors to black, june bug, and blue with a blue sapphire rage craw. well, i know I don't have to tell you this, but that works too. there was no one around to take a picture of the second nice one i got off the "new" spot i found. good thing i guess.

the more i fish this Big O jig, the more i like it. absolutely convinced at this point no other jig i've ever fished even comes close. and tipped with that potent little rage craw, it wouldn't surprise me to catch one in a parking lot.

Brian, i fish ky lake a lot but not pickwick. there are several watershed lakes within 45 minutes of my house. today's fish came out of one of those. as far as the jig bite goes, i would have no reservations about throwing a jig every day of the year, especially in some of those watershed lakes. it's probably my favorite bait.

beautiful fish paul. sorry to hijack but i wonder why their lateral lines are so prominent this time of year. i caught a few fish this past weekend in a lake where most of the time the lateral lines are pretty faint since the water is normally pretty murky. I always thought sunlight dictated fluctuations in a fish's pigment, but temp seems to play a role. this bass is an example, so is the fish in my new avy. 2PnaG.jpg
