Sunday evening we decided to go for a big fish and spent the evening pitching jigs at stumps. I caught a couple of small ones and jumped off a few more. No big bites. Monday we left out at sunrise and stayed out til sunset. We pretty much threw the tackle box at them and boated 28 small bass and a few bar fish. We tried Carolina rigs, shakey heads, split shot flukes, tail kickers, jiggin spoons, and a few other techniques but never caught a fish over 3 pounds. We had some fun though. I think Pippin caught the most this trip. I did hook what I thought was a very nice fish. It wrapped me up so it felt even bigger than the 7 pounds or so it weighed. Unfortunately, it was a drum. Darn. Got me excited for a minute there.
