After a Long night taking into consideration what may have been the problem why I wasn't able to pull in Large Mouth bass. I finally came to a solution, The Water was 45 and Most Large Mouth Turn off When The Temperatures dip below the 50 Degree mark. So after looking at old reports (From January 2003) I Finally Came up with a game plan for the upcoming outing. After The Rain came Through I knew the water would be up, the fish would be closer to shore with the high water and Very low light conditions. And I decided to Finesse a 3.5" Black Finesse Tube by YUM. I used a Red 1/0 Eagle Claw Worm hook and Attached Two BB Split shots 15 " above the Tube. The Plan was to fish Slow, Be patient and Catch at least Two Large Mouth Bass. I let the current do most of the work; And I Barely made movements just a quick Jerk every now and then, and very tight jigging motions just to get the tentacles of the tube moving. I ended the Day with Four Large Mouth Bass and one Bluegill. And Unfortunately for Shane He was unable to hook into a fish today, Better luck next time buddy. :aaathumbsup:
