View Full Version : James/Chick Report

Okay... so I've been beat up a little bit about being closed mouth about fishing success the last few tournaments. So Bryan Elrod and I have had a couple lucky tournaments in a row and have been fortunate to win the Aug. Castaway's and this past weekend 2 day classic. Well, kudo's goes to Bryan for finding a little nitch and I just helped expand on it a little. Without getting too specific, the fish we caught were in the backs of creeks(way back); once back there you had to look for the deepest water(deep being relative) and if it had some wood or grass in that deeper area it was money. We have been catching the bulk of them on a jig, but on cloudy days like this past Sunday they would smash a buzzbait or moving bait. We actually caught a 5 pounder Sat and Sun off the exact same log. For me the Chick and James has always been about spots and knowing which tide to be there.... but the past couple months has poven that there are patterns to be had here and specificly patterns for the bigger fish. So, dont be afraid to go against the grain and try something crazy or go beyond where most everybody else goes.
