I traveled a ways from the house and tried a spot I haven't been to in while . Being a public dock one nevers knows what to expect . Case in point , I roll up with a short window to rip some lips and the dock is loaded up with folks . Now mind you one of two things is likely , they are either on fish or killing time ......first option is what I found on my first drop .....:ThumbsUp
The fish were holding under this dock and all around it as well about 6 to 8 foot down in 12 to 14 foot of water . The folks that were there had about 5 or 6 in the ice chest when I got there and gave them my first fish . I wore the little buggers about flat out in 45 minutes with a super duper slow falling bait . The presentation of choice was a 1/32 white head black eyed jig with a light collar and a number 6 I think hook . I ran a stumpbug once again in the citrus color with a chart crappie nibble on the hook point . Pitch it out about 8 foot and wait for it ....6 lb test and a rather slow slow fall involved .....The line never ever got to get straight ...EVERY fish took it on the fall and just layed the line limp . Now mind you them boys was ketchn fish as well and the 5 of them were putting fish on the dock as well . They were using some kind of slatwater bait rigs with multiple little fly looking jigs rigged in succession and a bell sinker on the bottom .
I put my keepers in their ice chest and whacked a big number of fish in a very short time .
Sure was kewl to roll up and pitch and start ripping right and left until I left .
got there at 11:45 am left at 12:30 pm ...45 minutes was my window to ketch ...
that's my story and I am sticking ....it to em ....:Rofl

Congrats on the ketch! That head is much like what I call a Popeye jig, but the ones I use are hand tied, but work great! Was really surprised by the jig when I first tied one. Went down to my bank and dropped one in and to my surprise they were on there that spring. I had 10 in a hour and next day went back and got 6 more. Had enough for a fish fry that weekend! I also was using a 1/32!

BTW Ketchn I am pretty sure you probably know there is a real GO Light too right, lol? I have the first one they ever came put with because I had a friend that was trying to start up a company to put on bass tournaments with prizes and all much like some that are still here today like the Big Bass one on Rayburn and TB as well as other lakes every year. Anyway he did a few before he had troubles and he had some of the prizes left and I was able to buy one of the GO Lights for a bargain then and still was, lol! Anyway I have a light socket that I stick the GO Light into and then I have a remote control so I can see when I am running the boat without having to hold the light. Cool stuff for sure!

I was on lake Proctor sw of ft worth about 1.5 hours ...corp lake ....well known for an abundance of palmetto bass aka hybrids ....that lake has very high numbers of baitfish and in turn lots of predator fish as well ....

Awesome stuff! That rig you described sounds like a sabiki rig, I've always wondered how it would work with panfish, got my answer!
