  5. Details: 5 lb. 20 in. Largemouth Bass with a Homade Brushguard Jig

    PLEASE READ ENTIRE POST! Got out at 7:15 and flipped bank. Came up to a bush extending over water. Flipped up blue/brown 3/8oz timber-style jig with brown craw trailer. ...more Felt jig ticking brush - something like a pine tree was down there. Flipped back, 5lb 20" bass! As I later found out by making a countour map with AutoChart live on my Humminbird, the brush was where the breakline of an underwater point swung towards the bank and became a shorline break. This crook or inside bend was a funnel for bait and also a staging area fro bass to rest before they move up and spawn. Though the water was warm enough to spawn the fish were not on beds.
