Another Spin At Busse 4-6

Postby minstrel » Apr Wed 07, 2021 1:22 pm

After catching the first of the year on that spinner I had to of course put some on order in a typical GAS release.
You know, so if I lose one I'd have a backup of course! :D And then a backup for the backup...

I got this one from War Eagle via Amazon. Very nice. It pulls a lot of water and creates a mighty amount of flash. I was thinking 'man, something is gonna hit that (rhyming expletive)' when I cast it shallow to check out the action. It's a 3/8 oz double willow and substantially bigger than the small one I threw before:

I was alternating between it and a senko. Still no luck on the plastic but I got a big hit on the new spinner. A bit of a tank actually, no official measure though (I feel compelled to be xtra fast with fish when people are watching). I was surprised the amount of anglers out, thought the inland trout's siren song would have drawn most away...


So, bigger spinner bigger fish :think: :thumbup: Interesting.

Nice to get a spring chunker like that and spinnerbaits are super fun to fish

real nice fish!
I have a Orange Ride kayak and I am usually fly fishing at Beck, Busse, or DPR. If you ever see me come say hello, I love meeting new people in the fishing world. Tight lines!
