Rich and I fished his boat (Taxfree) Tuesday, 5-11. We fished the Shoe in perfect weather. The bass bit good till 10:00, then it was tough. Like really tough. We caught around 30 bass by 10, then another 10 fish in the next three hours or so. We moved around a bunch, but we just could not get them to go again—which is unusual. We gave up before 2.

Kman Special swimbaits and JP jigs caught most of the fish—probably 70/30. We got bit on the drop several times, but most fish had to be coaxed from the bottom which resulted in sizable tackle losses to structure. I caught the Mother Of All Mackerel on a 100g Sniper. I thought I had a bone there for a minute. Water temp was 62-63.5 all day. We saw lots of birds and bait out there and even drove up on some working birds—macs. Cuda should be here any day...

Anyways, we didn’t sink the boat or get arrested or towed. Thanks for the invite Rich. Good times.

    Sure looks fun!

    Maybe I missed it, but have you already discussed how you are fishing the double swimbaits?

    I used to use a three-way swivel, but had larger fish break off when I had doubles going. Now I use 2 swivels, with the main line going through the first swivel like an egg sinker. Now when I have doubles going, they aren’t fighting each other directly.
