Texas Rigs (Pitch/Flip)
Morning was chilly at 50 degrees on a late August day with light breeze. First cast was at 610am on the northern portion of Lake Wissota against some boulders with steep drop offs. I was using my Daiwa Tatula Elite 7'6 H/F Flippin' casting rod with an 8.1 Daiwa Elite Pitch/Flip reel spooled with 40lb Sufix 131 braid tied to a 10' fluorocarbon 20lb leader. Texas rig setup was a 3/4oz tungsten with two stoppers, Gamakatsu 2/0 ringed EWG hook with X-Zone's Punisher Craw in Green Pumpkin. Important note on the punisher craws, I would not go bigger than 2/0 hooks, maybe 3/0 max. First cast, fish on. Second cast, fish on. I was catching them so fast and they were in all sizes, mostly big smallmouth. My first time at this lake and I was excited. I caught so many in the first hour that I had to hit spot lock because my hands and abdomen started cramping so I had to enjoy my coffee while it was still warm and eat my breakfast.
