I am not sure if any of you read my thread on the old DA
site about going out for errands and trying your best to squeeze in a couple
casts. (I know you do this too lol). Well today was my first grocery store bass
run I will call it the 2012 Grocery Run Opener. When I do this I usually pick
one rod and one lure. A lot of the time I choose an spinner bait. I can cast
them a country mile and they are fantastic search baits and you don’t need to
keep pliers with you to get any fish off. Today I hit 4 ponds. In most cases I
am in and out in five minutes. Get out of the car run down to a favorite area,
and make 5-10 cast then back to the car. When I get a fish, of course a few
more casts follow. Today I was throwing a Strike King Red Eye, it was chartreuse
and white. Each pond would yield one bass tonight. However I have at least for
blow up and miss the bait. If I had been out hard core there would have been
plastic to follow in situations like this. One bass SMASHED my bait sooo hard
it knocked or ate the skirt clean off!! And yet I did not get the hooks to it.
Oh well so is fishing, at least I was lucky enough to catch a few on a beautiful
evening and the first grocery run of the year.
