They call this dog days and I can attest that it still that in spades for me. What you see is the best of 15 from Normandy and Tim’s. Every fish came on either a #2 VMC Neko Rig with a 3/32 Neko Weight or a 3/16 VMC Finesse Weedless Jig and soft plastics. When you rig the Neko rig correctly hook ups are in the 80% to 90% range-amazing. The hook has a 3 degree off set point-long shank-wide gap and a stout Fluorocarbon Weed Guard. You can pitch this into heavy timber and fish it through consistently. The 3/16 VMC Weedless Finesse Jig has a 1/0 light wirehook-stainless weed guard-a V shaped bait keeper and a Hollow Head that let’s you snug you choice of plastics up tight.  www.vmchooks.com I tossed the Neko Rig on  8lb Sufix Clear Blue Pro MixMono and the Jig on Clear Blue 6lb test.www.suffix.com Cooler weather is setting in which will help out the  76 to 78 degree water temps on these 2 lakes.  Season are changing and I’m gearing up for a great Fall and Winter Season. I urge you to go to Rapala.com and view the videos on these 2 new VMC items, they are very helpful. Rick McFerrinwww.tennesseebassguides.com
