    Just wanted to say hi to everybody. I am finally on board here at OGFC. I see some familiar names swimming around. Hope everyone is taking advantage of the weather! I went out fishing to my local pond yesterday and caught a 5 1/2 pounder on a wild thang jr. in about 10 inches of water on a mud flat. It was great! I will post a pic when I get the roll developed (man I need to get a digital camera).
    I went today as well and my wife caught a nice one on a spinnerbait and I lost two on the wild thang jr. Warm out but an enormous amount of wind that made it difficult in my pond boat.

  3. Hey Bass_Hawg - Any news on Kiser yet this spring????
     
  4. Nice bass! I’ve been looking for one like that since ice-out! I will be breaking out the creature baits this weekend. How do you rig your creature baits? I usually do best weightless, but I’m thinking that I might add some weight this early in the year.

    Of the creature baits, the Wild Thang jr.'s are very,very light and difficult to cast. I believe I was using a 1/8 sinker. Generally I use as little weight as possible when I fish plastics (my primary bait)Actually I prefer 1/64 sinkers in the summer with 8 -10 inch worms and 1/32 with 6inch or smaller. Occasionally the situation will call for heavy duty sinkers but I rarely find myself in that situation in Ohio.
