Smashed em this week
« on: May 07, 2011, 02:40:20 PM »

Went out of bayshore on thurs and turned my arms into limp noodles.  once I found out how they wanted things presented, it was every cast for about an hour or so.  I started out with a red eye shad. Got bit on the lipless crank, but I was missing a lot of fish and/or they would slap it at the boat.  Tried slowing down with the lipless, but was hard for me to slow down when tossing a 7:1 gear ratio reel.   Tied on a pointer 100.  I was getting a lot more bites on the jerkbait, but only if I paused it for a really long time(10-20 sec). My cadence was jerk, pause, jerk, jerk, long pause.  I would get bit on that long pause.  As the day went on, the fish moved shallower and my jerkbait wasn't as effective.  I tied on the trusty ole 2 1/2 inch tube and just dead sticked it.  If I hopped it, I wasn't getting bit.  They wanted it either dragging ever so slightly or just sitting there.  Once I figured that out, it was every cast.  Biggest was just under 6.  Caught a lot between 4 1/2 and 5 pounds.  Caught quite a few in the 5 pound range as well.  I never seen the bay that calm before in May.  I could have took a pool raft to the charities it was so calm.  Anyhow, good luck!!!!

Took my friend from work who has never caught anything but a bluegill in a farm pond.  He had a riot. I can not figure out how to add pics.  Can someone tell me?

  Nice job.  Way to figure out what they wanted.  We were on St. Clair last week and at times had the same problem with the lipless.  We found that if we felt them swipe at it that if we just about stopped the retrieve they would hit it.  :)

Go to www.tinypic.com.  Click Browse Select the picture that you want...copy the IMG string for Forums and paste in your post...It should automatically size the picture for you...
That is the easiest way that I have found for a computer illiterate guy like myself... ;D

Great report thanks..
