I took Ronnie from JB Fish Camp out and for the first 3 hours we fished shiners. We had two chasers, and Not a taker. The shiner bite over there has been offal slow, so we decide to pick up the flipping sticks. We put on a Bass Assassin Tapout bait and started with the Junbug color with blue tail and also the black Tapout with the blue tail.
We caught (3) three fish right off the bat, then we ended up changing over to the Tapout in the Houdini color. I did cut it down to about a (4″) four inch size, like I have been lately with all my baits. Using a little shorter one, in the next hour and a half we caught another (15) fifteen bass. So all in all today, we had (17) seventeen to (18) eighteen bass up to about (3-1/2 lbs) three and a half pounds. But all of them came on a flipping bite, couldn’t get anything else on the shiners. Did drag a shiner along behind us all day, did not get a taker on the shiner!
We had a good day all in all, and look forward to taken Ronnie back out again here soon. Before the hunting season gets going here, I know he’s wanting to go at least one more time.
You wanna book a trip with me, give me a call…Thank you.
