spent the day on channel on the chain with Plunc learning the ins and outs of fishing plastics. i must say for a big guy who likes to "rip lips" this finesse bite is totally different than any other type of presentation i've encountered yet. the learning curve was long and tedious for me, and the feel of the bait quite different than actually being connected by feel with a heavier jig. its more a mental game with a lot of technique and visualization required to produce fish. like i said the learning curve for me was long but when you finally put all those little things together it was "AWESOME". I caught such a varied species of fish on the same bait i couldn't believe it at first. we took our quarry fish crappies in numbers exceeding 50+, we caught 10+ large mouth, 5 or 6 war mouth,8 gills,6 perch, green sunfish, a large shad, large cats, and can you believe it 2 keeper walleye which along with a couple 10" crappies will be dinner tonight! what a day and what a great experience of learning a new twist on fishing presentation. thanks Pat for your teaching, persistence and not letting me give up on it till i got it. the one thing i might add to anglers trying to pick this up is don't try to get this quick in a place with a high wind condition like fishing perch on the lake front your learning curve will be much shorter in a sheltered area. another great adventure in the fishing. i did notice a lower rate of harmed fish released with this method.

Thats great to hear. Sounds like Those'll Eat. What kind of plastics were you using (e.g. mini mites, twister tails, nails, ect.)?

Denny, I've been forcing myself to keep with the tiny flukes, but I've yet to catch anything with one yet. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. Any tips as a recent student? What are you visualizing?
