Flash Duck fun

Flash Duck fun
Last week, I was fishing live minnows both from a float and as a drop-shot, targeting Yellow Perch.  Ended up catching a few Crappie on the deep edges of the weedlines around the shore.  It wasn't until I got home that I put two and two together to come up with five, and realize the pattern.  Decided on my next time out, I would target those areas, but since the fish are scattered, I'd have to fish agressively, and decided to switch over to small crankbaits on one rod, and a tandem jig rig on the other.  I decided to use some Flash Ducks that I had tied up last year, as they're a close match to the minnows around here.

TODAY, my first day off since last weekend, I put my kayak in and gave it a shot.  No luck with any crankbaits, but the Flash Ducks are definitely a hit!  Going to have to fish those more often, and maybe tie some up in bigger sizes.

First fish of the day!  Sure was a surprise, as I was expecting Crappie and/or Yellow Bass.


A little while later, this one slurped a Flash Duck.


Man, those Smallies just don't give up!  This thing was pulling drag, pulling my pole under, etc.

Finally caught one of my target species:


Then finally, I caught this thing.  It sure wanted that jig!

Peace, Love, and Vegetable Rights!

Mixed bag keeps it interesting, eh?

What kind of jig head is that?

Something I got from LedHed a few years ago. 1/32nd Shad Dart on a sickle jighook.
