MMP = Monday Morning Paddle at Falls Lake - better to start the week with God's creation than with work's cubicle!

Paddled out of Upper Barton. Got 2 chunky white bass in the 12-14" range right off the bat in the middle of the channel. Both came on the troll and hit a size 5 firetiger floating shad rap. Wound up staying within site of the ramp, doing figure 8's to try and find some more. Never did find another one, but here's the two that came up to get their pictures taken (note how securely they are gripped with the new fish grip...may not be quite the test I was looking for:)):

Jeff, nice catch,, if you dont mine me askin, what size line are you using to sling a smallish lure like that? Thanx!

Good job!

Thanks Dave,
I toss the little one on a 7' Gander Mtn Guide Series rod, Mitchell 308x, with Spiderwire Fusion braid, 10lb test/4lb diameter. Not exactly a rocket launch but it slings pretty well with some Reel Magic on the line. For these fish I was trolling 50-75 yards behind the boat - make my 20 yard cast, then leave the bail open till about half the spool was unwound behind me.
