Took the whippy-stick out for the first time on Friday along the Riverwalk. The Smallmouth and Rockbass decided to come out and play along.

Started by swinging a Gold Empee and that netted several Smallmouth in the 10-12in range. Key was getting the bait down low. The Bass weren't chasing, but would simply suck up any meal that came their way. Didn't get a single fish while actively stripping.

Switched to a Near 'Nuff crayfish after a cold streak with the Empee and that is how I found the Rock Bass. Obviously they were feeding down on the Crayfish. They were holding in the "deep" holes, out of the main current. They were really focused on Crayfish. I didn't get a single one on an Empee, but they were aggressively hitting the Near 'Nuff.

All in all, a fun afternoon with the 6-wt 8)~ 8)~ 8)~

It ain't broke, it just lacks Duct Tape!
