Jay Brainard, an Elite Pro, and Kazuki Kitajima, an FLW Pro are “snowbirding” on Athens. They are guiding in their off seasons. Had a good, long conversation with both of them at the ramp this afternoon. Kazuki was throwing some of the biggest soft swim baits I’ve ever seen. It was bigger than a few fish I caught today! He and Jay both fished today and both had success fishing opposite type patterns. Proving one thing. I suck. I struggled all day and caught maybe 10-12 fish. No overs. 5 unders for 5.74. Kazuki caught a 9-something and a few slots. Jay was fishing to “get out of the trailer”. He said he was wanting to catch fish on blades. Spinners and chatters. I don’t know how he faired as for weights, onky that he said he was catching them pretty good on the other side of the bridge in 3 ft.

Must be nice to make a living fishing and follow the weather and get the experience of fishing lakes around the country.

I only caught 8 at stock pond yesterday I mean you have a captive audience and still they were being picky. Finally switched to a small swim bait on an underspin to get bites.

Need to use your 5000 you got from Christmas and enter some opens to do the same if that’s what you really want to do.
