Took a friend of my fathers out to do a little jig fishing Saturday. Went and hit a couple of brush piles and started fishing vertically. Had a slow bite and all small fish. We were locked down on one piece of brush, but there are several trees at this spot, so I started pitching out and letting the jig slowly swing down past the other pieces of brush.
Immediately started being nailed by larger more aggressive fish coming out and chasing the bait. Put ten in the live well in about ten minutes. Then proceeded to catch a lot of shorts. Swinging the bait past seamed to draw out the more dominate fish. Proceeded to another brush pile and they where taking it on every pitch and swing. Kept a couple of more fish for dinner and then let the rest go. Second pile was majority dinks, but had a 3 1/2# ditch pickle join in for a good tug. Fish liked Bobby Garland's in monkey milk and nocked the daylights ot of Crazy Anglers in Texas Toast. All in all, a fun morning.
Preserving Texas fishing heritage one lure at a time.
