Pitch'en to Heavy Hitters 7.4.10

No better way to celebrate the birthday of our great country than fishing for big largemouths and bonus pike. One of my favorite ways to target mid summer bass is pitching a jig on the outside weed edges. Healthy green cabbage plants in 10-15 FOW are promising hideouts. Any jig will work, as long as its black and blue! I like to add a craw chunk trailer as well. Pitch the jig on a stout 7-7.5' rod with 20# mono and hold on tight.
Dustin kicked off the day right with this guy.

We ended up with a respectable limit around 11-12lbs. One of mine.

We moved up the chain of lakes looking for more big largemouth. Found a few, and a few big pike. I boated the first beast.

  1. I'm amazed the Gators are so hungry this time of year. I need to get out on Dirty's lake and wear out some of those snakes.

    Very solid showing.

  2. Nice pic's....I am sure the fights were great. That's what keeps us going back for more.

    Tight lines!
