sd bay nite bite

went out this weekend to try out a new lure. hit up the bay for some night time fun, armed with my new lcfm 95mr Tennessee shad. tossed out a few casts while sitting on some rocks for some good lookin fellas!

first cuda for me! loosened my drag to avoid shake offs.

next couple casts yielded me what has eluded me for quite some time.

biggest one of the night. ~15"

had a fun time with 2 new species. all caught on the lcfm.

tally of the night:
1 cuda
3 vina's


Switchblade (aka warblade)

well, since i have so much time on my hands now (surgery, no weight on my feet) i've took to other things to keep me busy. 

*this picture is not of mine, but of the warblade*

i've been really interested in this type of lure since i first saw it. its called the switchblade , or aka  warblade.

below is a link on how to make them. its actually quite simple.

whats needed
swimjig head (i used warbait 3/4oz leadhead)
willow leaf blade (size 4)
barrel swivel
split ring
plastic tubing (i used aquarium tubing)

i made one myself and tested it out last night. at first, i was fishing the t-rigged t&c black widow, to no avail. then decided to try out the switchblade. first cast, BAM, fish on! nice chunky grump. so if you're ever bored, or wanna try something new, give the switchblade a look! it might be your next favorite lure.
