Jig & Pig Continues To Produce

 Saturday I was able to sneak back out on Candlewick Lake with my son. The program of a jig and pork trailer has been working great for me, so I continued to pitch the rocky shore line. I set my son up with a slip bobber with a jig head and night crawler to try and catch some gills. Although the results where not as numerous as trips before, the quality had defiantly boosted quite a bit. I landed 3 Largemouth with a few misses ,and my son came away with 3 nice gills in the 9in. range.  Two of the bucket mouth Bass I landed where nice and fat. One was 16 1/4" and the other was 18in. All in all it was another great father/son outing on the lake.

    1. Trout, My old man uses the jig and pig a ton. It is something I used to use a lot a while back. I haven't pulled one out of my box for a long time until last week and it has been doing great for me. Thanks for the comment and tight lines!

  3. I wish I could remember what lake it was that we used to fish and catch a gazillion Crappie, but the next time I talk to my brother I'll ask him if he remembers. If I find out, I'll pass it on.

    1. He had a blast. Those gills fight just as much as the bass.

    2. I know a pro who makes mine but terminator is the hottest jig on the market. My only requirement is that it has a gamastku hook. I prefer the football style in 1/2 and 3/4. I trail them with netbait crawls becuase the crawl tails float upwards. black and blue works well on the wick. Another thing i like to do is trim the hairs so the tail is highly visible. Always drag your jig than reel slack. <')))><

  7. I always enjoy hearing about parents who take their kids on fishing/hunting/hiking trips! There are so many things that nature can teach us, and memories that can be made! :)
