The mepps master and multi white bass champs, Mr. Dennis Christian, fished with me from 1 to 530 pm on hubbard Friday. I watched DC then imitated and we both were blessed with a fairly easy catching day and quality whites as well. DC did the fun count out loud on every fish we boated and it went up to 156
We did stop at count 100 at the early spot to find and go learn new structures, while fish were still thick. We left another spot biting at count 51. Then went cruising the lake scouting.
I've caught fish on mepps before but fishing with DC really boosted my confidence on the lure. I also went from braid on a spin cast to 10# mono on a baitcast reel on a light 6ft rod and that really helped with casting distance and sensitivity. Pointing the tip of my rod to my line does give a better feel to the blade spin and retrieval speed. The bigger fish were at the bottom while the smaller sporadic schoolers were on top. We both caught fish almost on every cast for about an hour.
But as DC stated, you still need skills to find and locate fish first. And DC is a master of finding fish on structures. He studied the topo of the lakes and is very precise on his boat position relative to his targeted structure
Also DC is a very patient man and very generous in sharing his technique to me. So I thought I'll do the same on here with my own perspective
Anyway, here are some pic memories I made with DC and hope there will be more to come
Thank you for a fun day, Dennis
(Found out DC got an EE degree and a master in computer...like me? Nerds!!! Lol
