Went out of my comfort zone today

7 posts in this topic

Today while fishing a local lake today i decided to try something that i had never done with a lure i had found about an hour earlier. I went to a weedline and started throwing a wacky rig. Two things i had never done before. And it paid off big time. In the first 15 minutes i caught 3 bass with one of them being a pb. My pb was also my first of the season. Im going to head out tomorrow morning to see if i can pick a few more up using that technique

i only have one picture and its not that good because i had to take it myself with my camera phone but i will put it up soon enough.

went out again yesterday and did the same thing with another FM member and we slammed them. total on the day came to 25 bass between dinks and 5# and one musky lost at the boat. all fish but one were caught on a wacky rig.

now i need to go out and buy some new stick baits because we went through almost an entire kit yesterday.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
