Another Dirty Fish!
Well we are at the time of year when the fish are all weird and funky. Post spawn, super warm winter, and a hot spring all make for some slow days on the lake. Got on the water before daylight, get to my sure thing early morning topwater spot and we are jacked (you know you are just going to catch ‘em and your holding your rod super tight like it’s a shotgun). Obviously the fish were not jacked. Not one bite in the first 45 minutes. We managed to catch a couple of fish, just keepers. That is when I knew it was going to be another slowwwwww day. Moved around and threw everything in my boat at them except my batteries. And then I picked it up, yep, my Steez rod with 14 lb. Sunline Sniper flourocarbon lined on my Steez reel with a Dirty Jig swim jig/Zoom ultravibe chunk tied at the end. Sounds familiar cause it is the exact same combo I caught my 12.39 on. I politely put the stubborn fish on notice and began to do work! 5 best was around 15 lbs and then I stuck the kicker we needed. 8.89 lbs. All we could say was can you believe this?
