single spin

no beetle spin,. regular single spin like you would use in lakes for largemouth.

with a 1/2 oz spinnerbait more than enough gap, rig the swim bait flat, hook exposed .

if you use smaller sized single spins reduce the size of the swim bait .

ticking the tops of submerged water willows with a large single spin tipped with a 5 inch swim bait has worked in the liquid mud .

single spin?? You talkin like a ginormous beetle spin w/ jighead? Is the gap on a jighead hook big enough to handle a 5" swimbait? Do you leave hook exposed, brush guard, rigged weedless?

a 1/2 oz jig tipped with a 6 inch swimbait rigged flat has worked on the seam and ticking the tops of the willows.

jig/pig in the slack water pockets, little heavier than needed to pond the bottom when it hits. lift, drop, repeat .when you lift you feel the extra weight .

fishing liquid dirt

Started fishing around 11:30am in lower end of park. Rains from last night brought river up 6"and wiped out any clarity gained over past three days. Threw 3/16oz keeper hook w/ various plastics around any downed trees and large wood in main river that created some type of break beyond the actual shoreline. Retrieve was SLOW. Managed two bites that dropped it as quick as they picked it up in an hour and a half. What held active fish yesterday, seemed void today. Looked at five different creeks trying to find something that had some type of mud line or visibility, only one appeared to have potential. The creek is small(maybe 20ft. wide max) and I wouldn't even consider fishing if river was at normal pool.Second cast along the mud line I landed a 17"-18" walleye, fell prey to a 4" senko w/glass rattle. Managed approx. ten smallmouth from 10"-16" on plastics and two on a #3 mepps from the mouth to 50 yards up the creek. Ended up better than anticipated, left around 3pm.
