Went to boyd after work and couldn't catch a trout. But that is ok because I now like to spend my time TRYING to catch bass. So I threw all my cranks, spinners, senkos and any thing else I could think of. No love from the bass. So I tried something I have been wanting to try.

You all have been saying that you catch bass these days on curly tail jigs. So I went to sportsmans. Well there are alot. I have heard that Gulp is the hot stuff these days. So I couldn't find any of them labled "curly tail" so I got the 3" swiming minnow in watermellon.

Now back to the lake.

So I threw one on a chartreus (sp?) jig and one carolina rigged on a white floating jig.


I got a lot of bites but couldn't set the hook. I landed two about 6 inches. They looked like my first so I would call them largemouth.

Then I caught this one and I have no idea what it is. Can any one help?

I havn't caught any since my first and I have been trying let me tell you. It's good to know that I can actually do it twice.

I think it's a small largemouth that's slightly humped in the picture due to flopping around. I think the fish's head is turned slightly to the fish's left, making the mouth look like it doesn't go past the eye. Also, as someone mentioned, the mouth is partially open which could also contribute to the mouth effect. The fish doesn't have the fins, the eye, or the body structure to be a smallie either.
