Lake Eufaula (Walter F George) (AL, GA)

Lance Pemble reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Carolina Rigs technique and Dobyns Rods Champion XP Full Cork Casting Rods on Lake Eufaula (Walter F George). Additional comments from this report: "Fished Lake Eufala for a week and had a really interesting practice. This day I found this 6.74 offshore on a ledge in 24-27 ft. Smoked the Carolina Rigged Zoom Trick worm. Idled the ledge and saw a rock pile that looked pretty good plus could make out a few fish on the ledge as well. Couldn't see many... But saw just enough to whip around and fire on them... FIRST CAST caught her! Was able to replicate this pattern on a couple other really similar areas."

Mike Cochran reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Carolina Rigs technique and St. Croix Mojo Bass Casting Rods - EOL on Clear Fork Reservoir. Additional comments from this report: "It was a brutal day, most of the fish that I marked was all on humps that were in 8-12 ft of water.

Reported by
STEVE OUELLETTE

Nickajack Lake (TN)

STEVE OUELLETTE reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Carolina Rigs technique and St. Croix Mojo Bass Casting Rods - EOL on Nickajack Lake. Additional comments from this report: "pre fished for the Tennessee Bass Federation State championship. We had scattered clouds with no wind so we decided to find hydrilla patches in 8 to 15 feet of water. Adjusted leader length and found a 3 foot leader was optimal to drag my bait thru the grass. Was able to get a few short fish and caught a 3 lbs 8 oz Large mouth. We found several grass areas that were productive"
