I fished bellwood lake this afternoon for a few hours with my son and the bite was a little slow at first at least until we figured out a pattern. When we got there I noticed that there were shad rolling on the surface all over the lake huge balls of 3 to 5 inch shad everywhere. We marked some scattered small schools of bass underneath them and every so often one would scatter a ball on the surface. Fluke crankbait rattle trap white chatterbait nothing. Finally just got out the jig and fished the edges of the grass and pads, didn't start catching until we begin to flip the all the way to the back of the pads and grass and hop the jig through the lily pad stalks and right through the grassbeds, the really knarly stuff. Anyways that was the bite and it was a a slow bite but when they bit they would smoke it. Normally bluebird skies and high pressure I would be fishing a weightless senko but the jig is making me a believer. We ended up with 9 fish 5 of which were 4 or better.Thebass in this lake are fat and healthy. Here a few of the better ones [img:center]http://[/img] [img:center]http://[/img]

Same thing happened to me today, had shad flippin everywhere but wouldn't touch a fluke, spinner bait, swim bait, square bill, would not touch a surface bait. Tied on a Booyah jig and rage craw and boom. Weird.

Sounds like the fish aren't the only thing that got hooked on that jig. Nice fish thumb

Nice fish and great story.. Jig's are my primary choice, always have a rod rigged with a jig.
