Little slower today 1-27
« on: January 27, 2017, 05:58:50 PM »
Started off great this morning at the bridge and then just died...kaput....notta.  Time to hit the bushes.  Could graph lots of fish but they didn't want to play today.  Finally found a brush pile that had some cooperative fish.  Finished at lunch time with 13 nice ones in the live well and probably lost that many jigs.  The west wind was terrible at noon.  Today's best jig was a 1/16 hand tie in solid chartreuse about 1 reel off the bottom and try not to move it.

Not too bad at all. NOAA was calling for 6-8 winds on Palestine today and it was easily 20+ by the time we quit. Nice job!

I haven't felt them thump a jig that hard since last spring.  They were slamming it and I had to use pliers on all but 2 or 3.....I LIKE IT.

It's hard to believe any weather reports anymore.  Did ya'll have any luck today?

We thumped em good today.  They absolutely hammered the jig.  Multiple fish would have sworn they were going to be big white bass or hybrids only to haul up toad white crappie.  Meanest white crappie I have probably ever caught.

Probably!  My buddy said his back was sore today from the ride back across the lake.
