Default Thanksgiving at the Hill

I haven't missed a day fishing on Thanksgiving or Christmas in the last 5 years. I went to Center Hill today and had a blast. I had the smallmouth and spots figured out pretty good. I had to leave early because I got called into work or I may have had one of my best days in a while. I never caught a largemouth and I never caught a fish in less than 15 feet of water. Very steep points and banks leading into pockets was the key for me. I also caught a few on deep flats on the edge of really deep water.

Yea those stupid pictures cost me $20. Lol. My two biggest spots both weighed 3lbs 3ounces each. I caught a few smallmouth and ended up having 2 over the 18" size limit. My buddy was giving me a hard time about posting 2 pictures of the same fish. I told him that they were 2 different fish and he bet me $20 that they were the same. Knowing that they were different; I accepted his bet. Well he was right. I had taken a couple different pictures because at least for me it's kinda hard to take a decent selfie with a fish and I had actually posted the same fish 2x. Anyway I caught most of my fish on a Texas rigged rage bug with a 1/2 ounce tungsten sinker and I caught a few fish on a 3/4 ounce biffle hardhead swinging football head with a biffle bug on it.

Put the pennies in a jar of honey or syrup.

Just wondering if yall ever use any red or crawfish colored rat-l-traps or similar bait (maybe even a chatterbait) while paralleling the deep bluffs/banks?
