nice fish.
« on: October 29, 2020, 09:48:39 AM »
I fished Tuesday the 27th on the main stem and because of the lower water fished with my kayak. I started with a spinner bait but had to change that quickly because of all the weeds on the lure every cast I was fouled so I went to a soft jerk bait texas rigged the only thing that worked and hooked 25 real nice bass to 19 inches. found one hole that was loaned with fish. what a day most bass fat pigs spitting up some type of shad bait fish. Man the susky still got it!

Well done!

The key this time of year is finding them as they seem to stack up.  Not asking you to give up a spot, but what were the characteristics of the hole you found them in?

Believe it or not zelmo I caught all those fish in a tale race right above a hole, they where in 2 foot of water and feeding. My guess was they just came out of the hole to feed? and also so they showed a preference for a 4 inch green pumpkin jerk bait went through 2 bags, And they would not hit it nosed hooked texas  rigged only I missed a lot too because of that. But hey you got to do what you got to do to catch them

I use the zoom flukes in white. But I am going to have to try some other colors!
Here is what the shad look like sometimes at Muddy Creek:

Have you been back there? I am retired I would have been! And if I caught fish again I'd be staying on them!!
