CC are a strange lot. While fishing a Texas ranch lake a couple years ago on a nice winter day, I started with my favorite bass lures (Mepps) and got near squat (one little LMB in an hour), then I switched to a hook and long purple rubber worm to cast out and lolly-gag it back...the cats took over and I had a hard time leaving the pond to meet the guys for the evening hog hunt. They would hit it as it slowly sank within a foot or so of the surface. If nothing hit it like that...I might as well have reeled it in and cast again because the rarely hit it moving to shore. I caught 6 of those 5 to 9 pounders in 45 minutes all within 25 foot of shore line...I was in heaven. There's nothing better than catching cats while bass fishing!

Fish on!,
