  1. finally got to the big O for some hybrids
    3 hits on top only landed one, most of the fish came off a bigg swimbait fished deep in the fastest current i could find
    only landed ten or so but most were between 5-8lbs deffinantly a good time, great to see some of those things blow up on topwaters
    also the skippies were everywhere i looked, if there were shiners there were tons of skipjack
  2. Yeah, they're in there, great day!

  3. have u ever used a 6 inch. repalu, jointed. in river for stipers?

    I haven't used them much in the river, but in the creeks and tribs I used to use a #5, #7, and #9 original floating minnow and caught a bunch of wipers on them. I don't know what the size on these #s are, but I would guess about 2.5" to 5".

    The main problem I have with them on the river is when the fish are a little deeper you can't get it down enough. I mainly use jigs now, but break out the Rapalas for fish near the surface, white bass and wipers.

  5. thanks for the info., have a record breaking year
