I went to IG this morning and fished for about 90 minutes. When I got there I fished some slop at the far south end near the fishing pier using a topwater with no success.

I then went to the north pool and fished some slop there, again without any luck. Then I fished an area that I have had success before near the bridge. I tried buzzbaits and lipless cranks and although I had a follower on the crank, I couldn't get anything to bite.

I then went to my trusty Yum Dinger and on the second cast caught this 14 incher. I was fishing outside the weed edge.



I caught another smaller guy and lost 3 others in the weeds. I should have just used the Dingers in the first place.

There were a number of other people fishing mostly by the piers.

Thanks for the report Doc!

Senkos and Dingers catch often can catch you more fish. But I feel that it is more fun trying new and different stuff. At least you didn't get the skunk.

No Trick Worms. I have been having more luck with the Yum Dingers lately. Earlier in the year, the Trick worms were the ticket. :wink:
