Neat video Nekro. Looks like you caught some Green Sunfish and maybe a Longear besides the bass. That is my stye of fishing. Love throwing lures/soft plastics on a ultralight. Good job. woot




Side Note: Just wait until you hook into some "Monster Bass" and the bigger sunfish with that ultralight. I call them "Drag Pullers". hooked

lol What other bait should I buy for pan fishing? I bought some job heads and some strike king mr crappie plastics. Is there a size like and inch or bigger I should use for a creek in the video by my house. I want to start taking a panfish rod when I'm kayaking when the bass bite slows down.

Loved the video. I also love the Ugly Stick Combos. I have a few myself. Great tackle to fight both the small and big fish. thumb



Side Note: As Curtis (Laker One) stated above. "Just wait until you hook into some monster bass and the bigger sunfish"! Pole benders and drag pullers for sure! boxing

I would get some small Berkley Crank Baits. Chartreuse seems to be the best color. Also Chartreuse with other colors like Chartreuse/Black, Chartreuse/Pink, etc work well especially on small soft plastics. Small spinner baits like Little Georges, and Rooster Tails are great. Small Gold or Silver Panther Martin Spoons are go during the late fall and winter. You might also want to get a jar of the Gulp Alive Leaches,Minnows,and Worms. They work pretty good all years around. Small soft plastic Grubs especially Chartreuse and White work good during Spring, Summer,and Fall. Also use what every you have been throwing as long as it is Pan Fish Size! I have caught sunnies on Rattle Traps,and Hot Spots also. Love my ultralight and fly rod!
woot

You made a great choice adding that ultralight into your arsenal. Enjoyed the video as always.
