Howdy... a little late getting this out, but here goes. Fished an amateur bass tourney Saturday before last and did pretty good. Got an early start out of the Minnow Bucket and was on the water at sunrise. Beautiful morning as the red-orange sun rose up making a beautiful silhouette of the cypress trees and shorebirds. Started working a shallow grassy shoreline and my buddy missed a blowup on a Pop-R. We worked that shoreline hard with frogs, chatterbaits, etc, and eventually moved over to a secondary lake point with sparse cover around. I noticed some shad working out in deeper water, so we motored over and started catching. We were in in (from what I remember) 8 - 12 feet of water, and I started throwing a large silver-blue generic shallow jerk bait, and it was a hook-up on almost every other cast. I ended up with 8 or 9 unders, the biggest being a fat 16 incher that likely weighed 2 + lbs, and a lot of 12 and 13 inch pipsqueaks. It was a blast! My buddies each caught 6 or 7 bass a piece, once they re-rigged with a shad type bait, and the fish finally moved off or stopped biting. After that, never got another bite, and we had to run in early as the fish in the live well were starting to fade. Had to go weigh them in and let them swim again!

Wish I had taken more pics!

No big fish this year, but man I had fun hammerin' the little schoolies!

Man that is awesome! its not always about catching the biggest bass on the lake but outsmarting them and having a good day with friends. More of us need to get back to this. Great write up and pics
