Holy crap batman you gots some hogs out there you need to change your handle to bigassbassmaniac. Congrats you are theone who has observed a lot and succeeded in being a damn good stick congrats
Nice catch man, I am pretty sure I have seen you out and about getting your line wet. We put a little crawdad boat in the water co. once. So are you going to tell us if it was a crank bait or what?

whats your take on crankbaits in general? i tend to never use them because for one ive never caught a fish on them, and two they are so easy to lose and get hung up in weeds

I started seriosuly cranking in November...i bought a 706 powell crankbait rod..and said to myself "im gonna learn how to crank this winter" I isolated myself for a bit wen i got the rod to only use cranks.. (thats just how i learn) To me now a crankbait is an essential in ur arsenal. U need different colors and different depths. U also need tight and wide wobble. and area ur throwing. I understand it can be frustrating to snag a crankbait and lose it...remember some float bak up....i've lost a few but look wat i was rewarded with. Also with wen getting it hung on weeds it makes u wanna put ur crankbait away...thats something i cant tell you yet because i need to learn how to run a crankbait through grass more
Nice man, continuing to do work out there...i bet you guys get a 9+ out of there sometime this year.

Stained water or dirty water in general= fish staged up shallow
