    Default Tangerine dreams and .......

    KABOOM ! Now we all know color is insignificant in the scheme of things and the lady with the clear curly tail on one rod and real minnows on the other will tell you this is fact as well .
    Of course she only managed to ketch one small mud turtle on a minnow and silly me struggled with a yellow and chart and orange tri color right there with her at a mere 2 tiny baby crappie .......
    Here it comes ya"ll , my confidence in the handtie was high and I refused to change it and then it happened , hung it up and lost it .....darn it
    Well , took out a plastic that I affectionately call my Tangerine Dream and tied it on and as it often happens the show began ....
    one little fella tried to eat it so hard the spilt tail came out his gills !
    was it color that made it happen you might ask , certainly not , but then again it was the ONLY thing I changed up on , nothing else . Went from the audience to the performer just like DAT !
    Go figure right .....
    KABOOM is how it is done when they "WON'T" bite ,just saying .....

    Seen me catch over a limit and another guy in same boat has struggled to catch any with everything the same before . Seen guy sitting next to me use same jig and he even tried tipping with minnows and could not catch any so who knows . But now with livescope we see presentation ( movement or lack off )and how close you get bait matters .

    Unlike many folks I am much more meticulous on my presentations and locations, it likely isn’t about how close when you drop it repeatedly in the exact same small triangular hole multiple times with one color and change the color and get instantly bit , of course there are doubts and other things in play in most cases when it comes to ketchn crappie for sure my friend.
    The one thing that “might” have been the ticket could have been the size , the tangerine dream was a bit larger bait .
