      @Esgar272 Hooked in the mouth. Think it was a reaction strike more than anything. They are plankton eaters, that what surprised me too .

      Was the Tilapia foul hooked? I thought they only feed on plankton...@Surf_Monkey

      @Esgar272 I know, right. I always joke w/son that I have to blindfold him before taking him to my spots so he won't know how to get there.

      Getting out fished by your kids could only mean that you did a great job teaching them how to fish @Surf_Monkey don't teach them all your secrets now...

      When it's not so hot, you can get away with a crankbait, slow retrieve. My favorite it the H2O CRUL in the Dismind Dust pattern.
    8. Surf_Monkey 0
      So, bigger the bait and slower the bait, the more you'd get a bigger one.
    9. Surf_Monkey 0
      @brandenhill99 Right now, I use plastics. My "Go To" plastic is the Zoom Brush Hog in watermelon color. I think, since it's hot, the bass don't ...more wanna do a lot of work to get food.
