Got the skunk off 😁

Recommended Posts

20190326_152216.jpgPhew!....finally after 3 trips with nada I got off the schneide today.

I ended up with about a dozen really nice whites and one dink...all caught on the same $0.20 1/8th ouncewhite maribou jig from Walmart.

In the morning it needed to be a slow retrieve with a snap and fall action...they always picked it up on the fall and you had to let em grab it for a second before stickin it to em.

Closer to noon it needed to be a slightly faster (still slow) retrieve while putting a more subtle swimming action to the jig with the rod tip.

I was happy to find i hadnt lost my touch and could still pick up on subtle hits.

There was one other guy doing well on a small chartreuse plastic of some sort and a guy that came by in a boat had a few as well on the A rig.

Felt awesome to feel a few hard fighting whites on the end of the rod...thats what keeps us all comin back!

Now i gotta learn to tie some maribou jigs, any tips on where to buy some good maribou??

Not bad. Those will definitely fish.

You could get some bucktail and tie them up like a clouser. Bit more sparse. Or just go with what you got. It won't matter when you get it in front of a hungry one. 

 

Bucktail is definitely the next material on my list!

                     Not sending you out to buy other colors but chartreuse over white and blue over white work. Just saying :) ,

                  Those jigs are nice man. Not sure if my clousers are sparse enough Ronnie but they are fishing just fine :).
