After a nudge by AJfishes(nice You Tube video this past Friday-dat de way You Tubes should be ZERO commercial$)older son and I hit de Tracks,launching outta Bayou Liberty Marina(I tend to use launches without much boating pressure for lotta reasons and wanted to hit area N of St.Genevieve Church anyway).Too bad both Windfinder and my preferred Wunderground missed de mark by HUGE margin-damn waves coming over bow of SouthFork but older son managed fine 18 inch red almost right away,compliments of Thumping Mullet,Chartreuse-mated to incredible Lunker City 3/8 ozjigheads,best on Planet.These heads are very fine with powdercoated paint on em and ultra-realistic eyes and best part is their anchoring system!!!Hooks aint to shabby,neither,lotta times ya manage to snare scale of whatever fish chases lure(how many other jigheads can brag bout dat!!!).We bounced around,way too much for my liking,I was tossing Lunker City Shaker(Trestles Trout Tamers on last productive trip to de tracks)in Limetreuse and had very serious thumps but missed what may have been big ole lunker specks based upon last productive Tracks trip!!!Slowly and methodically made our way back to Carr Drive area,could be absolute gem for reds and older son and I switched over to Bomber Spinner Baits,he used very fine Lunker City Fin-S fish in smelt(looks identical to glass minnows)and I threaded on Yum Mud Minnow,Seas Disco color and nabbed fat marsh bass,missed fine red dat we both saw explode onto lure but somehow missed hook!!!Tried few spots N of St.Genevieve Church and only managed two smallish bass,released both to fight again and possibly grow a tad.In retrospect,shoulda hit fine ole T-Funky for slabs,been averaging one or more close to or exceeding 1lb on EVERY trip,just not finding em stacked up and my personal belief is bigger slabs more solitary critters,chasing away much smaller sac a lait.Are few exceptions and do have spot dat recently produced 4 chunks with biggest coming on VERY FIRST cast!!!Might take short break,be back at either Tracks or T-Funky real soon.Wifey got new fine air fryer,she gonna air-fry dem fine fish!!!
