    Default Red hook only

    Last night I went out on my pier to get some rods to respool. While there, I decided to cast a few of them to check the line and how far they cast. Picked up my 5th rod with only a cork, weight, and red hook. About 1/2 way back reeling at a decent pace,,you guessed it...About an 8" black hit it. No bait just bare hook. Earlier in the evening, I threw everything in the tackle box to no avail.

    I do like a little red on a lure. I use jig heads with red sickle hooks. Apparently a little red fash was what it took to get a strike
    :I would like to thank the builders of docks for giving me a place to fish and lose tackle

    Yep...I had a bare Bass worm hook dangling in the water off a dock while I was trying to untangle my line when a big Bass hit it, and that was the only Bass I caught.

    Proves that sometimes they want it moving is what gets the bite VS color, size etc.

    Growing up, I remember dad taking us to a place trout fishing and them hitting a bare gold hook. Looking back it always was a sonny day too...

    Last year my brother and I were crappie fishing in the spring. I had a knot in my reel and was messing with that. My line was dangling down in the water with a bare, gold hook. I felt a tug on the line and pulled in a nice perch. We laughed and so I put a line down with a bare hook to see if it was a fluke and caught another nice perch. We fished for an hour with bare hooks and caught several nice perch. Never happened again.
