This is a first. Slow crawlin a football jig thru deep parts of the lake looking for new structure. The fish hit as I was reeling it in just passed where my polarized glasses could see. Snapped a pic and sent it on its way.

      a bullred or big black drum any day. Carp fishing is too finessey for me.

      The fight is pretty unpredictable. From my experience with carp and buffs, the fight is pretty boring. Sure they pull hard, but you know what's gonna happen. ...more If I'm fishing for big pulls, I'll take

      @lainedillard Lol. First of all, they're base. Second, if you only catch two dinky base after a hard day of fishing, then yea stick to carp. When you hook a ...more base, you never know what it's going to do

      There's some big ones in there. I fished for them a couple years ago. Just chummed a spot with corn for a couple days, then fished with corn on a hair rig
