Slow down...
« on: April 11, 2017, 06:19:35 PM »

So, I'm at the pond, and been flipping flukes at cover, with one dink to show. Cast to a nice looking spot and decide to light a smoke. After I get it going, I start picking up slack and notice my line moving. Bow to the fish, hookset, and bring in a 14 incher



Moral of the story...remember to let that fluke, stickbait, worm, or jig to float down, sit there, and work it's bassy magic. I find that especially when my time is limited I will work a bait too fast.

Hardest thing in bass fishing to do. I always try to start slow because slowing down is even harder to do.

I slowed down BIG time this last year. Even slower than before, which was already slow.
My catch rate went up, the quality of fish also went up.

Don't get me wrong, some days a fast moving bait worked well. But some days you just have to slow to a crawl. Like Zippy I start slow. It's easier to speed up. I start to speed up until I find the right retrieve speed.

Thanks for the report and most of the time slow is the way to go with these kind of baits. ;D
