pitching jigs, to cane for big bites in Florida
Not all of the best quality – but I think they get their point across! Below you’ll find a vid collection of the “slounches” from the past 3 years:
10 pounder caught flipping punch skirts pre-front on Lake Okeechobee – popped among 3 guide boats. D&M Punch Skirt and Flippin’ Craw paired with a 1oz tungsten weight.
Probably one of the 2 biggest fish I’ve ever caught – only bite that day on Rodman Res., water temp never broke 55 degrees. 3/4oz Red Eye Shad.
A better look at the above fish.
Lucky to have gotten this girl to the boat – instant anti-reverse went out on the reel but she stayed buttoned after a flopped hook set. Flipping mats with a 1 1/2oz tungsten weight in North Central, FL.
No doubt the most audiologically pronounced giant to ever make contact with me – this fish made the boat shake and probably ingested 2 full gallons of water to take the bait in. Rage Tail Shad – weightless.
First pure giant on Lake Okeechobee after the move south. Pre-spawn staging fish tucked in the mats – post-front and she still thunked it on the way down. 1 1/2oz D&M Custom Baits Big Mama
Among some of the oldest vids I have – never saw her but I assume this girl was on a bed and I simply placed the bait in the right hole in the grass. 1/2oz lead and a Zoom Ultra-Vibe Craw.
Another oldy but goody – caught 3 in the 8-10lbs class in 2 consecutive days. Flipping a 1/2oz lead weight and Zoom Ultra-Vibe Craw.
Sadly the I ran out of juice for the catch on this fish but was able to at least get a vid image of her – absolutely dogged me. Pulled a 15′ jon boat straight into the grass like it was nothing. 1/2oz lead Gambler Lil’ Otter.
