80 and sunny today, 74 with a chance of rain tomorrow, mid 60s on Friday. The cold front really isnt hitting until Saturday... From there it will be mid 50's throughout all of next week to which I'm willing to bet it will be a tough bite next week.

So we have the tropical storm heading this way, which wont amount to much for us but will hit this Saturday. Am I alone in thinking this Friday should be pure fire? Full on fall feed bag paired with a weather system moving in the following day. I am thinking of taking the day out of work. What do you all think?

@Brazzy  I got the fish in my avatar on a texas rig at where I am fishing the tourney this coming weekend. Well, a kind of texas rig. I am going to be flipping a punch shot around to change up the profile of a regular texas rig. I am hoping My buddy and I found a spot where we can get a limit together. I had 2 fish over in this one spot. Water and weather conditions may be different, but coontail and rip rap are usually pretty good for fish!

I tried the O-ring for about 4 lost fish in a row. Haven?t used one since.  The X-zone stick bait is pretty good, but has limited colors, which I don?t mind, I really only use watermelon, green pumpkin or blue/black.  It has a pretty good salt content, much like the Yamamoto. Some people like the healer ones because they last longer and don?t break off the hook as easy. That is because of the salt content in the worm.  That is what makes it fall right and give the right action.  The X-zone stock baits are reasonably priced, especially when compared to the GY senko.

Good luck! My only thing is dont force it. The Texas rig still has a place (and always will). So if you have a soft, slimey, weedy, or mucky bottom give it a try.

I never throw it weightless. I know a lot of people do but never heard of people not liking the o rings. The only time I throw them is drop shotting for smallies in less than 15 feet (falls too slow for any deeper). I make them because they are the easiest plastic to pour and people buy them faster than I can make them.

As for the exo stick they used to have an exo stick and an exo stick pro. The pro was just softer (which means not as durable).

Awesome! I am going to have one tied on for a tourney this weekend. I will be flipping a decent amount of coon tail. I made one out of a bullet weight and some through wire I got from Lure parts online. I am curious if I can get anything on one.

I have been throwing the BPS senkos the past few times out and I find that they are similar to the Yammamotos with salt. But I think they are a bit more durable then the original senko. And I find that the BPS senko casts further then the yammamotos. I think that is the case because the body has a bit more heft to them, so more salt. I think I will burn through my strike kings and other random brands, and then next season go pretty much to the BPS senkos. On a sidenote, I love the Biospawn Exostik, they have a ton of action and are really durable.

Same as Curt, I dont throw a wacky rig much. I did however catch all of my fish on one night tourney this year on a wacky rig. I found that wrapping a piece of black electrical tape around the worm and poking the hook through that worked really really well. I dont like the O-ring method. I watched @ink_n_metal lose too many fish on not getting a hook into the fish while using an o-ring, and hooking up with more fish without. Just my experience.
