    Default Large bass running amuck in chick lake

    after over 200 fish caught and released in oct,nov,and today was a total blowout with 14 bass to 5.5 lbs..smallest was 1.14 oz..average was 3 lbs....chain pickerel to 3.34 lbs....and two that would have been well over 5 lbs...snapped 14 lb test like it was mince meat......THE WEIRDEST BAIT WORK AFTER RESEARCHING ON LINE FOR CHAIN PIKE TACTICS.........i have no idea how they worked......shad darts.....neon orange with yellow feather and took a black perm marker and put lines on them.....i went with tactics on line and produced............tried spinner baits....kvd cranks...chatter baits,wacky...nothing....shad darts-bingo


    all fish caught deep water...plus 8 ft or more....back at the pipes for those who know where they are back in the swamp.......past 2nd no wake zone....the other day they were above the 1st wake.....the trip before they were by dam.the fish are moving all over...water temp back up to 51 degrees..up 4 degrees from first of week........ill just say weird movements.

    Thanks for the report, t-man. Very nice fish. I never would have thought of
    trying shad darts.

    I think they'll be a few more warm days this week so you can catch some more. I had a buddy catch a nice chain pickerel on the Mattaponi on a shad rig. The rig had a shad dart in front of a gold spoon. Must happen more often than I thought.

    The T-man strikes again. Sounds like you had a great day. Thanks for sharing.
    You cant catch'em if your baits not in tha water.
