A little tougher day today as the cold front, blue bird sky’s and heavy winds blew across Tim’s The winds kept me off of the areas that I fished yesterday  so I looked for more protected area where I thought the top water bite would be. I caught and released a mix of 15 Largemoth and Smallmouth all caught on the Rapala Skitter Walk www.rapala.com or a Real Bait Crawfish Jig (see at murfreesboro outdoors) with a Trigger X Green Pumpkin Twin Tail Grub. www.triggerx.com I like to use Sufix 832 braid www.sufix.com for my top water baits, and  I really like to throw the Skitter Walk on a 7′ All Pro APX m/h Spinning. You can get a very long cast but still have enough backbone to get a good hook set, plus the 832 has little to no stretch which helps as well. . www.allprorods.com  More next week Lord willing.
