2011 Jig fishing challenge

Post by russ010 »

I haven't been on much, and I havent' been able to fish much, but when I do - sometimes I get lucky. These were both caught on jigs yesterday at an undisclosed location on an undisclosed jig (sorry, I can't give out the particulars yet until after a few more tournaments). I caught the bass at 1pm (103* air temp, 90* water temp), the hybrid came out about 20 minutes later. I was breaking in a new Kistler Zbone 7'3" MH rod, the new 2011 Shimano Chronarch 200e7, and some new line I've been trying, McCoy Fluorocarbon 12# test. I'll put up pictures of the jig at the end of August...

Man I wish I would have seen this earlier! Caught a dandy smally with just a 1/24oz orange jig and a nightcrawler bottom bouncing. :x

I need to go fishing!

The next time won't be the first time I've made the same mistake twice.

Holy Cow! It took me forever to gather the correct names and number of entries. I have not visited this topic in awhile, I can not believe the amount of entries from a few of you. AWESEOME! =D>

The purpose of these challenges is to get people to try new and different techniques, even ones you hate. I hope a few of you learned something from it, I know I have.

LSWOODY did come out on top through the hat program, so he was declared the winner!

Good job lswoody! =D>
