    Yeah, cwc and I caught a LOT of fish.  Nothing huge but 5 between 17.5 and 18.5 inches.  They were hitting everything we threw but spinnerbaits, though we caught the most on jigs.

    Ham, it also seems like the St. Croix Premier line has some shorter handles as well as maybe something in the Abu Veritas line.  Hope this helps.

    They will eat you out of a bunch of grain.
    I have rabbits and deer come in to eat what they kick out on the ground.  Nothing goes to waste in nature.
    Make sure you have a good air rifle handy, it seems to draw the feral cats.  A good supply of birds has cats coming from all around.  I opened the back door today and found one on the back step.  I bounced it off the boat and it did not leave.  Picked up a rock and nailed it good, it seemed to take the hint that time.  Lucky for it, its Christmas.  Any other day, it would be over the fence for coyote bait.

    Awesome report as always Dave, I had a great time taking the jet out!  As far as sharing info goes, all I can say is that I am thankful for the people on this forum who generously share patterns/techniques. I grew up fishing the Meremac and I can say without doubt that reading these reports helped me become a better fisherman. I hope the reports I post today help others as well.

    Sweet report Dave !!!! Congratulations on one of those days where you find a pile of them, it’s always gratifying. You know the deal.... all of this is a finite resource.
    David is far from stupid.... I like seeing young guys that are great sticks, makes happy about the fishing future around here.

    I’ve been trying to come up with the best dirty water color. Any ideas?  This weeks color test is a Hd craw with green pumpkin top and black bottom and pincers.  I personally think it’s a home run.  Stopped at a random public access and the river is up and muddy but I still caught several including this one

    I don't think it makes any difference what color you use in muddy water if you're fishing deeper than 3 or 4 feet, since most wavelengths of light are absorbed by the time the light gets to that depth.  I was just talking with a buddy a couple days ago about colors in muddy water, and he swears by a certain color that I promised I wouldn't divulge.  I told him it probably didn't matter, but he said he's proven it to his own satisfaction many times that this color produces better than any other color he's tried.
    But there are a LOT of things like this that really are impossible to explain.  Why does one angler catch fish like crazy one day, while his partner using the same baits in the same manner doesn't catch much?  Why does pumpkin with green flakes produce one day and pumpkin with red flakes doesn't?  I try not to get bogged down in things like that, I just pick a color that turns ME on, and use it all day without worrying about whether some other color is going to catch more fish.  I have a few "rules" that I go by when choosing the colors for the day.  One, in clear water I want lures that blend into the background, in murky water I prefer colors that stand out against the background.  In low light conditions I go darker in surface or near surface lures.  In very murky water, I want contrast, like a lure that's got both very light and very dark colors on it.  In typical water conditions, if I'm fishing something on the bottom, I want it to be as close as possible to the color of the bottom of the river.
