I met Ronnie Wooten (pictured above) at the Fire Lake ramp at 6:15am this morning and we fished until 11:30pm. The wind definitely wasn’t our friend today, it had to get up to 20 mph gusts but due to Ronnie’s skill and knowledge of small specific  logs (some unable to be seen) we still managed some great  slab’s.  I was using a Size #6 1/32 ounce  Green/Orange VMC Wax Tail Jig tipped with a Crappie minnow  on Sufix 6lb Test Mono  I’m very impressed with this little jig’s. The hook ups was directly in the upper roof of the mouth which means that the balance is dead on and the tails are unbelievably durable.  My 7’6″ AllPro Atlantis Series Rod worked extremely efficient as well .  Ronnie knows his stuff and that is proven over and over again here on Normandy.  Rick McFerrin
