      Went up to a small lake here in Northern Utah this weekend. My GF's dad gave me all kinds of crap when he heard that I had never caught a fish on a Jakes spin-a-lure. So he let me in on his favorite spot. I sent him this photo after I caught the first one of the day. On a Jake's!

      the pic's not a good representation of the day though. the rest of the fish were much bigger , once we moved down the lake shore away from all the people it got much better. 15" - 17" Native Cut-throats all day long but we were too busy catching them to take pics.
      Also here's a bonus pic of me at the GF's dad's back yard fly fishing pond.
      Believe it or not, this is actually one of the smaller fish in the pond.

      well, my freezer fish food supply has been exhausted.. and I heard that crappie are good fall-time biters so I bought some jigs last night (I usually use only minnows) and I hope to again stock my freezer with these tasty pan fry delicacies.. I have never caught a crappie on a jig before, so it will be new to me.. not sure if I'll cast it and jig it, or use it with a bobber, or maybe both
      I bought Northland tube Slurpies (small fry)
      Green beetlespin
      and Lindy Fuzz-E grub..

      I hope they work.

      i dont think a bobber is going to work with a jig head, normally i believe jigs are mainly used for bottom fishing. Crappie feed looking up most of the time so minnows still might be your best chance... Good Luck anyway

      just got back, not a single crappie, and I got snagged on my first cast with the fuzz-e and my line snapped AND I lost the front half of my ultralight
      I only caught a bluegill and a bass.. but at least the weather was nice.. 55 and falling leaves, a nice crisp autumn scent in the air

      NO

      Small crappie jigs are hung under a float and then retrieved in with gentle pulls with pauses etc.

      That one was caught trolling a Believer set on the deep eye coming out of 25' of water into 10' - 14' of water.
      Here's the first musky I boated on Saturday (same lure, shallow eye, 10' - 14' fow):

      Good work man! Yeah, I head out of Sea Isle NJ, so the schools are just getting going. These were in the back bay so you could imagine my excitement when that big boy started spooling

      yup, usually ................. more musky specific heavier tackle to get the musky in faster to lessen the stress on it and prevent break offs leaving lures in their mouths which ends up killing it

      I heard large mouth bass are not the best fish to eat

      A long time ago I met an old woman who had a sizable Bass pond on her
      property. She had a big, oval, galvanized tub in back of the house close to
      the pond. When she wanted some Bass to eat, she would fill the tub with
      fresh tap water, let it sit a few hours, then go fishing and put her catch
      (still alive) in the tub. She would let them swim around in the tub for about
      24 hours, then clean & cook them.
      She said it took the muddy taste out of the fish flesh.
