Been tryin to add to my fishing skills lately. Like, my deep water fishing, for one.
Mainly deeper than 6-8 ft. up to about 20ft. Living in the Tampa Bay area most
lakes around here are less than 12ft. but, probably average 6-8ft. around here.
I've been going to Lake Manatee lately and that lake can get to 38ft. by the dam
and holes everywhere to 20ft. filled with big fish, so that's the reason for wanting to learn to fish deeper water. I went out and bought some deeper
running crankbaits, got some football jigs and such and using a whole lotta
patience. Well I pretty much ran outta patience. Tried, tried and tried again.
Nothing seems to be working
------- untill I bought some tube jigs. WOW!
Not really sure if it's my skills improving, the time of year or the new baits but,
I've been slayin' 'em lately!
They almost jump in my 'yak from deep water just for these jigs!
So I'm not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth, so to speak but, I'll
keep using these things and slowly bring the football jigs back into play to try and round out my deep water skills. Keeping my fingers crossed that eveything keeps going my way.
