Default Who's catching them, and on what?

Fishing has been tough, but it's real tough putting the red eye shad, and solf plastic craws away. They're catching all my fish on shallow flats. I wish this weather would turn around so these fish can get to spawning.

Red Eye Shads the few times I've been out. Hard to put it down when they have been producing.

Been so shi*tty out though so haven't been able to get out much.

The ones I've caught were on a Buckeye Mop jig. Also got one on a swimjig.

#8 Xraps and Flat Raps, if that fails I go for the bubble gum senko imitation.

Nope, I lost 2 on the river and figured they are a little too big for now. Later this spring and during the summer they should slay them.

I ended up throwing a swim-jig on a tourny today, and caught about a dozen fish on it. No big bites though unfortunately.
