I keep a ton of slabs in the boat. Imagine that. 😉 Wife is always picking at me about carrying 9 rod rigged with different swim baits and slabs.
I launched early and caught a few in the dark on Pencil Poppers. Soon as the sun popped up, that was over. 😉 Started slabbing. Marking fish all over the place but with few bits. Kept at it rotating rods until I dropped a Silver Ice Ghost on 'em. It was on. Caught fish for the next hour. Nothing over 16" but what a hoot!! I've been doing well on these for sure. The key to slabbing (at least for me) has been to keep using a different slab until you find what they want. As Bill Dance says "they'll tell ya". Slabs come in so many shapes, sizes, colors etc. it's often a process to figure them out. I was ripping the slab. That is reel,reel,reel as fast as I could and let it fall. They'd often hit it during the reel, reel, reel.... 😉 Good Fishing!!!
