Caught 'em pretty good on Thursday 6/3/2021

Dean picked me up around 8:30am on Thursday and we headed toward Stockton. Put in at old State Park and headed toward the big water. Every point we tried to stop at had at least one or two boats on it. Went to my 7th or 8th favorite spot before we were able to fish without butting in on somebody. I really wanted to catch some top water fish but it was already bright and hot by the time we got there. I threw my spook and a popper a little bit but never could draw a strike. The wind was blowing pretty good so I threw a crank bait and a swim bait but no takers. I threw an underspin and a square bill up into the trash and a plastic worm as well but just couldn't make it happen. I really didn't want to but I reluctantly picked up my ned rig and..... started catching fish immediately. I'm trying to wean myself off of it so I can remember how to throw some of my old favorite baits but dang it..... it just keeps getting bit. So.... I quit fighting the urge and just starting throwing it, and I'll be darned if we didn't have another great day on it.... unbelievable.

Good day there bud.  Ned is all that I can get them to hit.  With the water dropping they may pull back and other stuff might start working.  I am getting tired of this fairy wand fishing.  I want some spinnerbait fish.

The ned is the most amazing bait I've ever thrown.  I believe it all has to do with the way it always stands straight up when on the bottom.  I know Dutch uses the TRD but I prefer the ZinkerZ cut in half.  They just seem squishier and more buoyant to me.
