Lately, I've been catching some really nice bass in the lily pads using vintage lures like the Herb's Dilly, Shannon Twin Spinner, and both Rex and Johnson spoons with pork trailers. Just wondering if anyone else out there is doing this.....
phototex, we used to fish with little slivers of fatback, trimmed, for everything that swam in stock tanks around Ft. Worth. Once one managed to get a hook through the pork skin, NOTHING could get it back off.
Question: So, fishing in the pads . . . how are you managing your technique? Are you hanging up at all in the pads or pulling through cleanly?
I've got pads, lots of them, tons of them. We've cleaned up a lot now, so not like this any more, but here is me (see pic) about a month ago mucking them out of my boat stall.
