Looking forward to having livescope one day, but until then we’ll just have to make do. This was a 2.5 hour trip after work today. We left them biting so my buddy didn’t have to drive home in the dark. Best spot was in 11 fow on a lay down log. Finished up fishing brush in 14 fow. All spots were on main lake flats. Water temps 85, still on minnows.

Last thing-

I’m hating the bonehead jigs right now. I went back to them today for the first time in months and I immediately started having issues. 10lb braid with a polomar knot and the line kept slipping out of a gap in the eye of the hook. I tried 3 different jigs, 2 different sizes and it kept happening. My redneck jigs never have that problem. I don’t want to bad mouth products, but I would stay far away from these jigs.

I have had the same issues with a few jig makers. Once I started using a 10# fluorocarbon leader, the problem is not nearly as bad as with braid. I still have it happen occasionally but not too often.

Nice mess of slabs! Have you tried just taking your needle nose plyers and mashing that ring eye gap to close up the space? I can remember doing this on various jig hooks including my own hand poured using matzuo sickle jig hooks. Seems like it solved the problem.

I’d rather just buy jigs that don’t have the problem in the first place, but if I ever run out of other options I will give this a try. Good thinking- Thanks 👍

It has to be a giant for me to weigh a Crappie. We had some quality fish in the mix, but no giants.
