Dick Majewski

Lake Winnebago (WI)

Dick Majewski reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Finesse Jigs technique and Daiwa Tatula SV TW103 Casting Reel on Lake Winnebago. Additional comments from this report: "Found a new technique friendly way to skip docks with minimum backlash. It has taken a few years but for me it was more of a equipment change than anything else. I purchased a Lew's Andy Montgomery 6'9" skipping rod which has the right amount of tip and backbone to get a good skipping cast. Then using electrical tape on my spool, I only have around 40 to 50 yards of 20 # test Seaguar Invix line available for the cast. I set the tension knob so the lure ( I have been using only 1/2 oz to get comfortable with this technique) I began practicing the roll cast on the street in front of my home to get the feel for the angle of the cast and practiced in open water before venturing into the shallow docks. It's been an eye opener for me the past few outings and experienced a completely different way to fish docks. After using a spinning rod and getting broken off on pilings this is a way more satisfying way to go."

Bmorris07 reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Finesse Jigs technique and Shimano Curado MGL 150 Casting Reel on Lake Oconee. Additional comments from this report: "The water north of the 44 bridge is still really muddy, so I stayed south of the bridge focusing on docs that had deeper water near by.
