You gotta go buy several gallons of dishwashing liquid (earth friendly of course) and dump it in above the spillway so that when it gets pulled over the spillway it creates massive waves of bubbles which confuse the snook and they bite anything :cookoo
So I think it was on friday I was in brandon and snookmeister got me talked into hitting a spillway before heading home. Of course I had all my gear in car so why not. Made a stop to get some freshwater snook/**** crack. Got some bread and threw out a few balls to get them in but the real secret to getting them is the secret ingredient which I can't name but it's something in this pic
After secret ingredient is thrown into the water I give it 5 min to activate it's magical powers and all the crap bait fishing needs... net, bucket, pogy saver, big a** air pump & lawn mower battery... geez, this bait thing is a lot of work but it's gotta be ready because the shiners die pretty quick if it's bot all ready.
I grab net and do the 5407 motions needed to throw the **** thing and heave it out thinking i'm going to have to do this a few dozen times for enough bait and then drag it in and...
sweet jesus the secret ingredient did actually work! I start emptying net and sticking some in bucket and throwing bout 75% of them back into pond. These were good baits too and I'm thinking it's going to be.... wait for it.... legendary night! I pack up and head the 5 min to the spot.
I get there and water is still moving so I deploy the bubbles (actually i didn't and just kidding so please dont do this) and change out lure for a circle hook and open up bait bucket and ****!!!! Looks like all the bait is dead, uggggg. I guess I put about 6 dozen too many in there lol oops, but I find 2 alive and stick one on and huck it into a known **** spot a few times then get
Just a baby baby ****. Go to grab other live bait and its dead now so threw on a 3" rt muller in redfish color and fish it fast so it made a wake on top and they were getting popped thru bubbles and got
Actually by then they were hitting anything on top in the bubbles but most were misses which im sure was bubble related mostly, I know one I got on a baitbuster. Snookmeister decided to join me and came out and the bite stopped, haha dang it.
Nothing for awhile even tho he brought some fresh bait so I put on a 4" shadflash with a 1/4 jighead to try deeper. We were talking and I was just heaving and reeling and blabbering about something secret and I get a hard thump to wake me outta my stupor and immediately feel some good weight and heavy tail kicking and know it's a decent fish so greyson reels in his line and after a bit grabs my phone and starts to video a bit. Wasn't a great fight but I didn't lose the **** thing
and some video... it was dark but oh well
if you dont have facebook heres a link http://www.bedeliciousphotography.com/stuff/fishing/video/snookbubbles.mp4
We got a few more but didnt take more pix, sadly you cant fish it again for awhile
I'm going to throw in your bait ponds until you learn how to take an in-focus picture!! haha. Besides finding us bait is your job
It was pretty fat fish, was way out in middle of nowhere and it's usually the other other other other other other dave (bass assassin) who always gets them on the shadflash.
The spillways is good and always fish around but it's not so often you catch them. Like after I caught that bigger one it shutdown but they were there and we really weren't getting squat.
Yeah I usually fish the other side, probably cause it's closer to dog food company so it stinks more lol
That might be the secret, it was just a weird scenario and it seemed more like someone had escaped and the poor sheriff parked on other side and walked down that side then scaled the fences on the dam and walked across then scaled them again to escort us out, the chopper was a nice touch though
It's not always open but usually its the first to open. I'm more of an artificials guy but you never know what they will do, I've stood next to snookmeister and im throwing arti's and getting nothing and he's throwing shiners and getting hooked up within seconds every time or the other night where I got the **** on a live bait then the rest on artificials, just got to be prepared for either I guess.
We go out somewhere just about everyday so you won't have long to wait, where are you located? pm me with your #. We def have fun!
So fishing may be okay this week and the whole problem may have been the escaped prisoner?
:Spittingcoffee Thats the funniest thing I have heard in a while. Kids do it all the time. But a **** adult...... hahahahaha
Getting bait is a major PITA. Those fish are there but sit in a few spots but they are there.
