  5. Jigs or Lindy rigs

    It greatly depends on how the fish are positioned in the water column. If they're hugging bottom, a sign of neutral or negative fish, I'll drop a jig first. Fished slow near bottom, sometimes just dragging it along works. Next, would be a longer snell lindy with a plain hook, maybe a single bead. Higher riding fish tend to be more aggressive, then a lindy spinner rig. Cover water with speed, keeping off bottom and in the strike zone. If that connects with fish, I'd grab a crankbait to eliminate the need for putzin' with livebait. Let the fish deside...

    Awesome! a new naturalist in the making; impressed with your research eyeguy64. Actually "aberrations" can occur do to several reasons, but very likely this was environmental. Yep, caused by a sudden change in temp. but since there are changes in wing pattern coloration and not much darkening overall..... It was an increase in temp, rather then a decrease, that caused this change from normal. Dark variations always occur when there is an extreme drop in temp. during metamorphosis. Hey buddy, your never to old to learn. GOOD JOB! Here's another form of "aberration", with Monarch spots I thought you'd find interesting....
