Made Plans with Shane Last night to hit a Local Body of Water for some large mouth bass. I knew going in the bass were going to be lethargic, and we Probably wouldn't be able to manage one. Well, Turns out I was right. Going in I had my confidence high and believed I'd pull one in, but no luck. I Was Finesse Fishing 2"-3 1/2" Straight tail worms. What success I did have came Drop Shotting a 3 1/2 " Slider in Black But they Were Pan fish bites. So as The Large mouth bite obviously wasn't happening I made a switch to a 1/32 oz Lead Head jig with a White YUM Tube For pan fish. From There I landed 18 Pan fish (Bluegill and Pumpkin Seed) and One White Crappie. Unfortunately for my Buddy Shane He got the Skunk, Pretty much using the same tactics and Same Presentations. He'll nail them next time out.

We were Fishing On shore about 4 Feet out, I was Fishing what I believed to be a Submerged Tree while Shane Was Fishing about 1 Foot off of it. Most strikes were short bites. But Very aggressive Strikes Came When I "Pounded" the lure using very vigorous jigging movements Fast but short.
