Decided to try afternoon fishing since it cooled off. Wow, glad I did. DFW Fisherman and I caught about 40 nice keeper fish in three hours. All off two brushpiles. Only kept three for Dons supper.

As previously posted I have been catching a lot of fish in our slip on cut bait (Drum). I have been cutting it in 1/4" x 1.5" strips and using small hooks. Works great. Today I tried it out on the lake. The small bait was attracting so many Bluegills that I changed to a 1/16 oz jig with #2 hook and a 1/2" x 3" piece of bait. No more Bluegills but lots of magnum Crappie. Once I changed to the big bait it out fished jigs 2-1 on big fish. Tomorrow I need to go drum fishing, running out of bait.

The way I target drum is to cast a jig and fish it slowly on the bottom for Crappie. About three times a day I catch a drum. Have to put up with releasing a lot of crappie but I get the drum.





Drum on Texoma a few years ago.
