Took my year and a half lab out yesterday for some water work and decided to stay and see if we could catch a fish and enjoy the sunset.
First #1. Throwing a chartreuse and black squarebill off the bank covering a point, hooked a 13" crappie!
Thought hmm. Maybe he's not alone so picked up my spinning rod and tied up a double 1.5" curl tail grub and kept canvassing the area. Caught 2 more 9" crappie.
First #2. Picked up my second spinning rod that I had just spooled with 10lb hi viz braid and a 4 lb flouro leader (never tried it) feels great and no line twisting.
First #3, on that rod I fished a bonehead stump bug salt n pepper (first try with bonehead) under a float and caught a dozen or so over the next hour, most 9.5" but 3 more keepers.
First #4. Putting my last keeper on the stringer I looked back and my pole was getting dragged into the water, I was like man I got a big one!!! I did, 70 lbs to be exact. Of the 3 crankbaits I had on and the 3 jig rigs I tried before the bonehead, Hattie my lab looked the other way, but she slurped that stump bug up and was hooked in the lip dragging my pole around. So after taking my pliers and unhooking her, I need to speak to somebody at bonehead, their baits are too delicious looking
