Went out fishing in my favorite lake over the weekend. I fished long and hard all day rowing myself around in the Jon boat. I started off all morning throwing my favorite soft plastics, to no avail. I was patient, worked slow and only caught a couple of small decent fish all morning, maybe 14'' at best. I finally decided I had to try something else. I usually am after larger fish, so I decided to tie a jig on. I was glad I did, as soon as I threw it out right where I had just had my plastic worm, I started hopping it and smash, big fish on. Put up a great fight and finally, I caught my first nice fish of the day, 4 lb 15 oz. Worked the jig around a bit more and caught a couple other 2-3 lb fish. Then drifting my way back to the put in, I am working the jig real slow and again kaboom, big fish on. Another fun bout with a fish and I lip a 6 lb even Bucketmouth. I think I will be fishing a jig a lot more this fall. Sorry about the pictures, they are pretty bad.
