Lots of prospecting is finally paying off!
« on: November 05, 2016, 10:42:02 AM »
My buddy Jpenwell has been spending quite a bit of time on the water, doing a little fishing and a whole lot of looking! All the looking has finally started to pay dividends. Yesterday we hit a few of the "new" spots and found fish on a couple. I had to leave early to pick up my granddaughter from school but in the 4 hours spent, we managed probably 40 keepers with several quality fish and even 1 in the 2# range. I think we were pretty even fish for fish, me using only my hand tied jigs and Jerry tossing plastics. It did seem like the bigger fish were partial to my feather's though. Jerry's Pearl Truse & Texas Toast and my Pearl Truse & Grape Limeade were the preferred jigs. All fish came off brush in 11 to 16 fow from 1 to 3 ft off bottom and all were released to Thump again. Here are a few of the better fish...

Great job and report Vernon!  We struggled yesterday.  All our fish came just off the bottom as well.  The ones we did catch though were quality fish.
