They don't read our playbook
« on: April 05, 2020, 03:38:20 PM »
A friend and I went out today and tried the usual baits in the usual spots (3 to 5 fow), with only 5 fish after two hours, we explored some shallower water and caught a couple more. I turned and went to the bank where we caught fish after fish in fallen trees and rising pad stems in 1 to 3 fow. We ended the day with 24 bass. It just goes to show you, they don't read our playbook.

No they don't!

But if we want to catch bass, we need to read theirs  (giggle)

@Curt - RI , yeah that's exactly what we did. We fished the main lake for 2 hours and only caught a few fish on jigs and jerkbaits but not a single fish on a spinnerbait. We explored shallow flats and caught 2 fish and that lead us to the shallow wood and pad pattern. Every fish up shallow hammered the spinnerbait. Most people would not have given it a second chance after not getting a bite but the water was a little clearer near the shore and the spinner was the right tool for the job.
