Ventured out early to see what has happening. Ran into Roger Brown and Dave Wand out there. They got to witness me working the new 0.75 ounce RL slab. I always fish with the lures I screw up...but the size, shape and color were what they were wanting. The slab I was using had a dent in the bottom and no eyes.....but it's what they wanted. 😉
They were hitting the RL shape after ignoring the Prune Pickers and Ghost Minnows. So, I'm always prepared. 😉 I carry 8 rods so that I'm not dinking with tying on lures constantly. If they won't hit one, I'll just pick up another one. 😉 I should have waited prior to launching at 6:45 as the action didn't really get cranked up until 8 a.m. or so. There were MANY boats in that area. But I enjoyed watching people crank up and chase around every time they saw the surface break. A lot of those surface breaks were gar. 😉 Then, a bird would swoop down, and there the boats went again. Too funny. 😉 I caught 60 (before I quit counting) and never moved the boat more than 75 yards..... When the fish are sufacing....especially 8 to 10" fish, there are always bigger fish around but you gotta "fish" for 'em. By that I mean, the larger fish will be in the area "cleaning" up what the smaller, energetic fish are leaving behind. The only lures I used were lures that I fished on the bottom. While Dave and Roger sat there for about 4 minutes talking, I was constantly reeling in fish. They asked for R&D samples. I said "no". 😉 I kept 10 nice fish (15 - 19") for the freezer. I wiped out my supply on Labor Day at the annual church fish fry. 😉 I threw one fish at the live well but he bounced off and landed in the trough on the middle log of my tritoon. When I got back to the boat house, I couldn't find it. I guess he jumped out while I was running down the lake. 😉 I fished using the stuff below. The plastics that are torn up landed about 125 fish in between the 3 of them. Pretty tough stuff. I call them the Magic Shad on the web site.
