Well the last couple of days has been a little slower than I expected. We ended up with 18 bass in the boat each day with nothing over 3.5 pounds and that is not up to my standards this time of year. We will keep at it and things will turn in our favor once again SOON. We have used several different baits trying to get the schools fired up , at one point I felt like I had all of my Abu Garcia rods and reels out on the deck. We ended up catching our fish on the scottsboro tackle Company hellcat jig, Berkley max scent mag hit worm, Osprey jig, plastics and a spoon. We had the humminbirds tuned in on channel 360 to point us in the right direction to put our baits. It is a lot of fun when you see them before you catch them but it's not as fun when you see them and they won't corporate. I will still take my chances with channel 360 on the screen. I have a couple days left in August and booking for September and October if you are interested in getting around some of these bass give me a call and let's go fishing.
So today I had to do a little farm work but I had a call this morning and look what's here the Alabama thunder is in along with the pro blue red pearl swim jig ,weather it is the Osprey or the raider swim jig these are some of my favorite colors and there's a few more to come ,don't get left out. We will post more pictures of the new colors soon. One of my most favorite swim jig, buzz bait colors is still to come.
Well we got a little bit later start this morning and things were slow for the first few hours. We finally got rid of the clouds and things began to get a little better. We jumped around a little bit trying to make something happen and finally got a school fired up. We ended up with only 19 bass and was proud of them after the way things started. We had a couple of nice ones once we got them to eating. We caught our fish on the scottsboro tackle Company hellcat jig ,spoons and plastics. I have a few days left in August and booking for September and October if you are interested in getting around some of these bass give me a call and let's go fishing.
So the last few days with the wind had the fish I was on scattered a bit. We had a 8 hr trip we only caught 24 and then a 6 hr trip only 13 and yes that was disappointing to me. The last couple days its been all electronic trips teaching how to set up and read electronics, the last couple we done in my boat so we made a cast or two, it got hard to keep looking at the fish grouped back up and not catch one. So one client in just a few minutes puts 8 or 10 in the boat watching school and move around on the 360. The next trip got even better we stopped on a spot dropped the 360 in the water, got spot locked down and the first cast looking at the 360 making sure the bait landed around the fish he catches a four pounder. It was text book put the rods up didn't have to try to convince them anymore, they are believers, the Berkley max scent mag hit worm done the job after spotting the fish on the 360. I have a few days left in August and booking for September and October if you are interested in getting around some of these bass or learning how to set up and read your electronics give me a call and let's go fishing.
We started a little earlier since we had 2 6hr trips to get done today. This morning we ended up with 30 bass on the clicker and this evening we had 36 with a total of 66 bass in the boat today. We didn't get any biguns this morning but we had a lot of fun setting the hook and reeling them in. We caught all but a couple on the Berkley max scent mag hit worm and had a lot of fun doing it. This evening was a different animal the scottsboro tackle Company hellcat jig in the Alabama thunder color showed out and also caught them on the Berkley max scent mag hit worm and a spoon. We had a big sack of fish with good numbers, that makes for a fun day. I have some days available in August and booking for the fall if you are interested in getting around some of these bass give me a call and let's go fishing.
These jigs will be available while they last as soon as they come in don't wait until there gone.

Not all fish are in deeper water during the summer. The bass have been chomping the V&M Baits Pulse Swim Jig! It has a subtle yet alluring action that the bass seem to not be able to resist. This bait just flat out catches them.
Hope everyone is having a safe and fun time on the water this weekend!
We had a great time Matt. Got my first ever grandslam. To top it off it was my first ever spotted bass and first ever smallmouth witch was a 3lb Chunk. Can't wait to come back. Thanks ... See MoreSee Less
