Great day on JPP!
Inspired by Texas Rig, I decided to take the day off and give Percy Priest another try. Water was 57-58 and clearing. I started on steep rocky banks and caught several good smallies on a swimbait. Around 3:30 I noticed the water splashing behind me. Sure enough, the hybrids were blowing up the shad. I had a silver buddy ready, and it was on! 5-6 pounders were the norm. I had one break off that must have been a striper. (It dragged me around the lake before snapping my 12 lb test.)
The day finished with me dropping my keys in the lake at the dock. But wait, I threw my arm in the water and caught them mid-fall! Yeah, it was that kind of day!
