headed over to the lake around 730PM tonight. Started off with plastic worm not a nibble. Moved onto a red eyed shad again not a bite. Tied on a buzz bait nothing. Finally around 850PM tied on the sexy dog. Started working it around the point and had a nice blow up and a miss. Decided to keep working around the spot a few more casts one to the right than the left and finally right about the same spot as earlier. This time it doesn't miss. The lure disappears and I set the hook. Fish stayed low however could tell it was good sized finally came up for a splash and could tell from the sound it was a nice fish. Finally landed with the sexy dawg all the way across the mouth front hooks one side back hooks other side. Weighed it at nice 5.5 pounds and forgot to get a picture since this fish was 24 inches and only weighed 5.5. Another long skinny son of a gun.

were you walking the Dawg With the baitcaster?

havent been able to master that yet, maybe once I get a LH retrieve. I tried it a few times just can't get it moving right so this was with a spinning rod.

Fat or skinny, a fish like that deserves a picture.

I know it was getting dark and I had to do some work to get the hooks out and weighed and figured in the low light a pic may not take. Wish I had it was amazing how long this guy was, a guy fishing near by saw it when I picked it up and figured it was an 8 for sure

They have been crushing my pencil Tate from Yamamoto. A walking bait seems to be the trick, at least for yesterday. I hope it sticks around for awhile, I love walking the dawg.
Yeah wouldn't touch buzzbait but good to see walking the dawg worked. The lake is fickle getting ready for the July lockjaw
