In the meantime Rich and JIP head out to find some largemouth of their own in some of the coves that line the main lake. Rich has proven that he knows what it takes to be successful in the industry, and while he doesn’t get out fishing as much as he would like to anymore, is still an adept angler.


Rich and JIP find more fish under the docks

When asked what his favorite techniques are he ranked topwater first, followed by flipping and pitching, and then blades. Rich started the day like Jared working a Vixen, and JIP turned to a R2S Kong swimbait. “Can I check out that bait?” Rich asked. JIP handed him the rod and Rich handed JIP his setup.

As Rich began working the Kong back to the boat he heard a splash, and turned just in time to see JIP set on a fish with his Vixen. The fish that was landed was just shy of two pounds but it fought like a four plus pound largemouth, that’s Spots for you. The cove continued to yield plenty of spotted bass, but few were keepers.

On the other side of the lake Jared and I were getting into fish, lots of them, but the story was the same, they were all small spots. “Let’s head up into the river to see if we get into some bigger fish” Jared said, “I’ve won a lot of tournaments working that section of the lake.”

In one of the creek arms the bait was stacked, and we could even see them breaking on the surface as they were chased. Jared worked a buzzbait and I switched out to a Daiwa TD Minnow SG in Ayu pattern. “Got one!” I exclaimed as I set into a fish. “Good one?” Jared asked. “I’m not sure, I don’t think so, but it feels weird,” I retorted. “What the heck is that?” I exclaimed as he lifted a white bass into the boat.
