I’ve caught ALOT of fish on backlash casts with worms, especially wacky worms

Cool beans!

Caught about 100 fish at Monticello after my Yellow Magic had been sitting dead still for more than 10 seconds.

Yeah, try to catch up on a frog in deep pads.... bang

I’ve been Luck sometimes, not so much others.

Did you slow down after that and let it soak for a while on other casts?

Not a bass, but caught a big old cat on a chatterbait sitting at the bottom when I was picking out my backlash lol.

My dad caught his PB, an 11.2 pounder on a craw worm after working on a backlash for several minutes. I'd rather be lucky than good... Still waiting on being that lucky.

Usually with a TX rig or shaky head. Get a back lash, pull it out reel up the slack and there's one on there. It's happened enough that I check where the line is now when I reel up and feel before reeling up.

Pretty common problem. Forces us to slow down to fix backlash.

I used to fish Martin Creek back in the 80's and 90's (when there was great grass) with a Boy Howdy and a Devil Horse. Back then I used to smoke and I cast by the hydrilla mat and let it sit while I lit a cigarette. After a full 30 to 45 seconds sitting still a good one came up and killed it. I started letting it sit for 1 minute after that and if I didn't get hit I would barely move it and let it sit again. I can't tell you how many fish I caught that way...and it would scare the s*** out of you every time!
