    I fought a 22 mph wind yesterday and hit a friend`s pond, it paid off with a nice little Bass and a couple of Bluegill. Caught `em on a Firetiger Crickhopper using an old Shakespere ultralight rig with 4lb test....

    How do you work the lure? Close to the bank?
    Tied on or swivel? Weights?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    It`s a wake bait, so it`s runs right at the top of the water. I use a improved clinch knot and tie directly to the lure itself. I was casting out near some old tree tops about 20 or so feet from bank when that Bass hit it.

    I picked up some 6lb Trilene today for an old Quantum XR1 reel that I had retired and went out for a bit to try it out. Between two catastrophe failures I managed to catch this beauty and a couple of Bluegills....It didn`t take long to fugure out why I retired so the hunt is on for another reel.
