I fish the same tournament every year on the rock in April. We are almost always fishing prior to fish being on the beds. We fish Friday slay the fish, Saturday don't catch a fish, and Sunday in the tournament catch some keepers! Great guy weekend for the whole bunch.

If you have 5+ rods pre rigged prior to going to the lake what are they?

Here are mine, I of course have more tied on then this!

#1--Purple Shad War Eagle Spinner Bait

#2--Deep Diving Rapala/Crankbait

#3--Black War Eagle Spinner Bait

#4--Wiggle Wart

Well this will be different, if predictable:

1-2= 1/16oz Varmint/Ned PBJ and GP

2-4= 1/8oz Varmint/Ned PBJ and GP

5= 1/4oz split shot/mojo and green fish doctor

6= 1/4oz smoke single tail, 5"

7= 1/4oz shakey head and full size ZinkerZ or Zero PBJ or GP

8= Redfin

9= 5/16-1/2oz swing head and some green crittter or a menace grub

10= Redfin

If pushed, the first 7 would work fine. If pushed more I'd take 1-4, and the grub.

I rarely throw spinnerbaits and I don't own an a-rig. Jig with a twin tail grub, spook, 1/4 oz head with a 4" grub, shakey head or drag a zoom finesse worm with a split shot or mojo weight, jerk bait. That's really all you need. I'm gonna throw the Ned when I get down there and I might drag a wobble head but I swim or crawl my jig a lot which is basically the same deal.

I bought one of these so long ago that I hope I can still find it to put it in the boat
