My plans for the salt were thwarted by the incessant wind.
But it wasn't enough to keep me from getting my fix.
After a few halfling smallmouths, I set up the Predator MX over a drop off and put out two live bluegills on 8/0 circle hooks; one under a float and one on a carolina rig. It was nice not dragging a flowtroll since the Engel 19qt aerated livewell/cooler kept the dozen or so flathead confections lively and ready to go.
As the light dimmed, the action turned on and after several kitties in the mid 20" range, I got what I was after. My new small game spinning reel got a proper work out on a ~38" James River jelly belly.
|Gotta love 10lb braid on a 2500 spinning reel.|
It's nice having a productive sweetwater hole when my salt spots are blown out.
But you know I can't wait to get back.
The togs are calling me.
