Presentation: Jigging
Lures: Brown Wyandotte Worm 5/8 ounce jig

Notes: Well we tried again this morning. Started off down in the channel where the only thing we caught was Jimmy Hoffa’s fishing rod. Wind made boat control difficult and it also made us very cold. After a couple of drifts on both sides of the river I decided to head upstream and avoid the wind. Started our drift at the 13 bouy and we ended up catching 2 and losing one down by the 11 bouy. We could see the storm clouds starting to move in so we decided to get off the river. We were cold enough as it is, didn’t need to get wet as well. Ended up with two 22 inch males for a combined weight of 6 pounds 8 ounces. All I have to say is thank God for stinger hooks. Every fish I have caught jigging has been caught on the stinger.

Stinger hooks and wool gloves still don’t mix.

That should be it for my jigging, time to start pulling wire.
