I did try topwater baits right of the bat. The guide said that it would be very productive. Howevery true to my nature for some reason I just don't get hits when I use topwater baits. So after about two hours and one strike later I went to live bait minnows that we netted and stick baits which as you can see worked extreamly well. The minnows were used on a lite weighted hook and flipped to fish we were sighting with an ocassional blind cast to spots that looked like they would produce. And the stick baits all I can say is you know when they hit. Like a train. Usually on a stick bait when you get a strike there's that slight pause like you got stuck on something, But when these boys hit it's instant drag peelin' action. And yes as far as gettin' to go fishing I'm very lucky, as far has catching them I have my share of bad days. But of course You wouldn't know about those days because I wouldn't post them. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work!! fishdaddy.proboards49.com/ Take a kid hunting & fishing & watch the smiles.

You know what BB those Bass look like perch to me in sense same markings except for that spot near the tail. I guess every different land has its version of perch. ;D How ever they get huge ect compaired to our lil perch. Oh yeah how do they taste on the grill? Or can you even eat them?
Its ok to keep a fish or two if you really need it if not C&R!
