Ok, starting from the bottom pic, here is my very first ever swimbait fish. Caught this in my cousins lake. Caught it on a 4" Storm Wildeye Shad in Shad color. Here is another I got with a 3" Storm Wildeye Shad in shad color. Fished it like a jerk bait. Caught this white bass Fri. on the Little Tallapoosa River on a 3" Storm Wildeye Shad in shad color. And I caught this crappie today on another 3" Storm wildeye in shad color. I did dip the tail to change it to a chatruese color. Here's a pic of my boy Jacob with his first swimbait fish. Caught it on a 3" Storm wildeye shad in shad color. Jacob caught this good one on the same trip with a 2.5" Bass Assassin swimbait in what I think is purple/pearl color.This next one I caught while my daughter and I were fishing together today, caught it on 3" Creme Spoiler Shad swimming bait in Chartruese Red Head color.This next pic, I caught this bass with a Possum Lures swimbait in the crappie color. Got this next bass today at my church's lake, caught it with the Possum Lures swim bait in crappie color.

Not a swim bait guy. I have a couple that take up room in my tackle box though.

BTW, Capt Clown, nice fish.

The next time won't be the first time I've made the same mistake twice.
All the romance of fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.

I'm going to report my swimbait catches here...

I went out today to try and catch some LM or crappie on a 2" Wild Eye shad in the Shad color...This is the first time I've used these, I bought a whole bunch of them at Target on clearance a few months ago. Unfortunately, I caught exactly 0 LM or Crappie...but I did find a school of some white perch! I caught 4 total, but released the first one (it was small) before I remembered to take pictures...I only got pics of the first 2 with the swimbaits, the 3rd was when it was raining too hard to take pics.
