Pulled 50 yesterday in 16-24ft of water. Water temp was 50-52 degrees, and we were using tandem rigged Thump Chubbies in the Blue Lightning and Orange Crush colors. Jigs were rigged on 1/8 ounce heads. The fish wanted the baits moving slowly at all times. Not so much up and down, but more so swimming left to right, or on the fall.

How were you fishing? That seems heavy to me for the way I fish. They seem to like as light weight as possible. I single pole cast. Love your baits by the way! One of my largest caught on your Thump Chubby CR Special.

SuperDave, I was fishing like I normally would, but instead of using one jig, I used two. I would get my jigs in the target depth, then swim them from left to right, or right to left. If that didn't work, I would reel in and pitch out to the desired depth, and let the jigs fall back to me.

And I appreciate you using my stuff! That CC Special had paid my bills on many a guide trips.

Wasn't sure if you were trolling or something. Could I ask why the heavy weight? I've always heard least amount of weight possible to allow for slow fall. Just curious if I should be using heavier.

I went with the heavy weight so we could both fish quickly. The fish were very aggressive and didn't require much finesse, so by using a heavier weight than usual, we were able to move fast and fish aggressively. Typically speaking, all of my guide trip customers, myself included, will be using a single jig set up with either a 1/16 or 1/8 ounce jig head.

Thanks. That’s helpful. I think I could start using heavier jigs in some situations then.
