- Kind of a late post, but when out on thanksgiving morning before all the family festivities for some bass action with my girlfriend! We started off the morning slow with only a few bites here and there. I fished a canal system which I haven't been at for a while, so finding the fish was the number one priority and then keying in on a pattern! After fishing several miles with a few fish here and there. We finally found an area where the fish were schooling up and biting! Jerk baits and the gambler EZ swimmer were the key lures. Over all we put together some nice decent bass to end the morning!
