Fixed line white bass
A little after work fun with the white bass at the local Ohio river dam. The bass were hitting top water in a fast current. I used a Suntech fieldmaster 44 to toss out white killer buggers, with or without a bead head #12 to #8. Caught half a dozen, lost a few, cut off on the 5x fluoro. I was fishing from a platform so landing them involved pulling them upriver out of the faster current, then moving the rod to vertical and lowering it towards the water, whilst reaching for the line, grabbing it and hoisting the fish up to the platform. Probably a good job a did not get a real big on on!
Playing them in the current was fun, the rod tip goes up and down like a sowing machine. Good vibrations!
