I'm dreaming of a chartreuse Christmas...

Recommended Posts

Merry Christmas everybody!

Some great colors in the sky this morning at the launch.

So why chartreuse?  

I have noticed that when I fish small swimbaits like a Keitech that it seems I'll catch more smallies and wallies if I use a chartreuse jig head.  Lately when fishing my Ned rigs I have been doing ok on the spots, but can't catch a decent smallmouth.

I have some Nutech chartreuse crappie heads in my tackle stash and decided I would give them a shot.  Glued on some Dirt colored half Zinkers on a couple of them and took them with me today.  Caught 2 nice keeper smallmouth and a couple of walleye.  Maybe a coincidence, but I haven't caught a keeper sized smallmouth in a while.  Chartreuse seemed to make a difference, but more 'research' is required.

Caught some spots too.  17 bass total, 4 keepers.  One of the smallmouth really pulled, thought for sure it was either a big walleye or big largemouth - but it wasn't.

Still fishing steep banks, rocky points and timber.

Who knows where this bank is?
