Unruly Snakehead

Tidal creek in Northern Virginia.  Lots of pads and vegetation.  Teckel frog or other fast paced surface lure that makes a good ruckus acts as a search bait.  If I get a reaction but no hook up, I'll run a smaller surface lure with buzzbait type feel to the same spot.  I like the Ragetail Rage Shad on a 5/0 Gamkatsu.  If I still don't get the bite, I'll switch to a hollowbody frog with a cupped face.  I leave it in the area where I got the first reaction and twitch.

Jeff Lockhart and I had a blast.  He caught 2 up to 30" off of fry and I lucked out with two without sight casting up to 29".

Do What You Love

It all comes down to enjoying the experience on the water. For some people it’s purely about fishing. I get it. But I’ve always enjoyed paddling. It allows me to connect a little more with the water and I’m fortunate to have a kayak company and paddle company support me with what I feel are the best products available. With that said, if I had to pick one over the other, I would drop the kayak company before my Werner paddles. Again, it’s about the enjoyment of the experience and connecting with the water. No matter what I’m sitting on, I just don’t think I would enjoy it as much if the direct connection from my hands to the water didn’t give me the feeling that my favorite paddles do. Anyway, hope you all have a great Friday and enjoy your time this weekend doing what you love.

Quick After Work Session

A.W.S. - After Work Session - 
Because sometimes you just need that midweek fix.

And sometimes you hook a nice one in the mix.

Had three others around 15" that took the ned rig.  The bigger on ate a spinnerbait.
