CCAguns only had to ask one time if I wanted to make return trip to his fine ranch and private 10 acre lake at Liberty Trace and we headed there yesterday just after dinner and spent the night,getting great and early start and got on some fine and feisty bass and one decent perch.Each of us started today's return trip tossing topwater,with him using popping bug and me tossing Spro frog,each of us had decent blow-ups but unfortunately no hook-ups(not gonna try to attach pics to initial report).I decided to try Zoom speed worm and he tossed a variety of soft plastics,catching fish with pretty much every soft plastic offering and I decided to try a lure I recently picked up from Fish USA,Rapala Blades,and dat lil lure looks like a Sonic the Hedge Hog and was nabbing fish from the very first cast!!!We each had 2 sets of double hook-ups and unfortunately on those double hook-ups,we lost all dem bass and he lost a chunk,probably every bit of 2 lbs!!!Had lotta fun,came home with 15 bass and one fairly big perch dat made mistake of following Blades up to pontoon boat and inhaled it.Think all told,we caught well over 40 bass and fished from about 6-11 and made our way home with ice chest of fine bass and a perch.Love de action of dat Blades lure and so do de fish.Seemed like best results came from pulsating retrieve vs steady retrieve and bet Lady P reds will CRUSH Blades lures!!!Just got comical You Tube from Abita KC member,fellow fashioned lure outta block of walnut,squared off lure,attached two sets of treble hooks and seems like he caught nice bass with chunk of wood,nuttin' fancy!!!

Good trip, Mande! Wish the big girls would have been active, but appeared pressure high gave them lockjaw. Always good to take some of the smaller, eating-size fish out of the lake. Blades and rattle traps continue to produce, but I sure enjoy fishing the fluke! Regards!
