Toll a little stroll in the drizzle and it sure paid off today . Caught a limit of nice fish with a hand full of jumbo's in the mix. Watching an old Joe Balog video helped out . He was talking about using a #3 Jigging Rapala for big fish . I was sight fishing in 5 FOW and pulling the rap away from too many fish to count. The big fish would slam it after i pulled it back from the 6-7 inch fish. I saw a few that were between 10 and 13 inches and one that was huge. There were plenty of shad too. The perch would come through right during the shad run. It was crazy, especially after 4 p.m.

If it wasn't for my frabill flip , I-4 suit, and heat , i might not have stayed .
40 Degrees was still plenty cold with wet hands all day.
I stared down the hole so long , I could barely get up.
Well worth it. I dream of days like this.

Singing just singing in the rain. I hit it very early and wined all night at work about my back but the pics (& fish) took almost all the pain away. Jig rap & pink Swedish pimple. Frabill drying off as we speak. 12's, 10's, you know it's going good when the 8's look small.

I went back out this afternoon and more of the same.
I had a revelation about using a fire tiger rap because of the big perch in a jumbo's belly. It paid off even though I have never caught fish on it before. Could not keep the fish away although there were lot of small ones. I had to keep them off and wade through until a larger one would hit. No real huge ones although the overall catch size was better. Almost all I am keeping are females. All the fish i kept were 8-9 inches. Crappy bucket picture, but you see what i mean.
