floated 4 miles from trappers. caught a 12" smallie within sight of trappers right away on a chartreuse and gold rooster tail. switched to a chartreuse twister tail on a jig tipped with a little salad shrimp and got a 12" largemouth...a first for me on the darby. then couldnt really get a good program going. caught a few rock bass after switching from the jig to just a plain hook with shrimp. then switched back and forth the rest of my float. hooked up with another smaller smallmouth on the rooster tail but he jumped and threw it back at me. all fish came from shady spots close to the bank. they were trying to keep cool like me. this was a debut for the shrimp idea. heard someone else on here recommend it. i was not very disciplined at putting them back in my cooler, so i smelled like red lobster by the time my float was up.
