Dragging that little turd usually works...sure is boring though.

 

I've found thru the years that "boring" is a very relative term among fishermen. Other than topwater action, I've had guide clients call practically every tactic in the book "boring" at one point or another.

Had a guy years ago down at Ouachita who grew weary of pitching a 3/4-ounce jig into matted hydrilla/coontail grass --- and he had caught four fish between 5 and 7.25 pounds in 3 hours time.

My "low fun" light tends to flicker at even the thought of having to jig a spoon, unless it's a 200-fish day such as the white bass trip that my bro-in-law and I enjoyed one day several years back with Bill Babler.

 A close second on my "I'll just stay home and play golf" list is hurling a dad-blamed A-rig. 

Isn't it great that God made us all different?

True that...... I love jiggin' a spoon, and the A-rig is a ball for me to throw just because of the novelty of it,  and the possibility of catching multiple fish on one cast.  Its all fun and I want to do it all...

With limited time on the water these days there is nothing you could make me throw that would be boring. Maybe if I was out alot I'd get bored of one presentation of another but not currently. I got a 4 hour trip on Monday and threw a jerkbait for an hour straight with 0 bite. Not boring. Threw the arig for the other 3 and got 1 bite. Again, not boring. Loved every minute of it. Heres my 1 bite.

Yep.  You got your winders and you got your draggers.  Fun when you have both in the same boat, right dear?
