Hit one of my spots for a couple hours yesterday after granddaddy daycare. Tied on a 1/16 pink jig head with a white twister. Got a couple taps & several follows but no real hits. So I tried a little, pink tube on a 1/16 green jig. Same results.
Moved downstream to the foot bridge & tied on a white jig with an orange twister. After 2 or 3 casts I hooked a nice, fat, 10" LMB. It put up a nice fight. No picture because I couldn't get the hook out of it because of the barb. Pushed the hook further through, squeezed down the barb with my forceps & freed it. Too much time - wanted to get the fish back in the water.
Hooked 2 smaller ones after that. One spit the hook because I'd squeezed down the barb.
Keep calm and fish on...
There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
