Went out on Father's Day and killed it with my favorite combo, black 1/4 oz jig with blk/blue trailer, recently switched from RI Sweet Beavers to Uncle Josh Pork trailers. The biggest fish being 3lb 12oz, sitting under a brush pile. The other 3 were Charlie Moore size, all up shallow. I was also flipping lily pads with my punch setups, caught 2 and had 2 ~2blers come off at the boat, bad hook sets. It was a great day!

Took the day off on Friday and went fishing ALONE! I needed that "me" time and had a great time.

Went to a local conservation lake about an hour 1/2 from me and trolled around the lake for about 11 hours. Caught several on the Get Five shaky head worm and some on cranks, but the moss was so bad in most areas that I had to use plastics. As I was making my last run for the day, threw jig in some submerged, upright trees and landed this hog way off the banks. No official weight, but I'm guessing it was between 3 and 4lb. Measured in just over 18 inches which is a pretty good size for a spotted bass. Black and Blue Jigs have done well for me this year.

WOW, the last 5 trips I have been on and not one bite on a jig. I have stopped throwing anything but the jig and have not had a bite. The heat down here has been brutal. Hope to catch a few more, but the water temps are up and I think the fish are hiding.
