Hit the pond today after work. Cold and rain/snowy, I realized after about 15min that I needed to slow things down a little. Next cast I started my retrieve, soon as I hit bottom with my crank I paused it for a few seconds and bam! These little guys were inhaling it!

Nice. I have not caught very many bass this year, looks like you are off to a solid start.

That snap swivel is killing me bra. If you want to use a snap, try something like this:

You don't need a swivel, but whatever. That wimpy little snap is going to cost you a fish. Maybe no tomorrow, maybe not next week, but eventually that type of snap will fail, and it will be a fish that you want a picture of that does it.

Lol I was waiting for someone to say something about that! This pond is full of 1-3 pounders, a few 5-6lbs fish but its pretty rare. I would never use one if there was a real chance of a big fish. I keep a casting rod in my work car with a small assortment of cranks and jerks so I can stop here and unwind. I found a couple swivels in my bag and decided to use them so I could switch cranks quicker to save time at lunch.
