Took my rod for another walk.


Recommended Posts

Working on the theory that bass come on the chew just before a storm I decided to take my rod for a bit of a walk along my favorite pathway yesterday arvo.

By the time I got there the storms had all gone but what the heck I am here anyhow.

Had 10 small shrimp and caught 8 bass and 2 spangled in the space of 30 minutes.

No size but good to catch a few.


Tried for a while with different lures with no result but got the thinking cap on and thought fish may be down deeper so switched to a small spinnerbait and hopped it along the bottom.( too many snags to risk a bibless) and another 6 smallish but feisty bass.


Just on dusk they went off the chew so switched back to lures and picked up another 4 till I lost my sx40 when I tried to lift a big ( over 40 ) one up the bank .


The mozzies were starting to get to me so I packed it in after a very successful trip.
