7" worm Tex rigged with a 3/16 Conquistador tungsten bullet weight. Outer edge of submerged weeds with a lot of alge on top. If they were't hitting on the initial drop, I'd let it stay put for as long as I could. This one hit on the second or 3rd pop.
I set it pretty hard and it made one jump out of the water; so I knew it was a good fish. Then it turned down and went straight into the weeds. I hauled in 7 lbs. of the junk. Couldn't even see the fish and thought my line was going to break several times. (Yo-Zuri hybrid is awesome stuff though.) It was like opening a Christmas present when I finally got the mass of weeds to the dock!
I haven't received them yet, but that's exactly what I was thinking. A white spinner bait with a willow leaf blade has been hot for me this year. The down side to white spinner baits is they also tend to attract the water wolf Bring a slime towel.
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
