Bassin1973 Posted July 31, 2013 Report Share Posted July 31, 2013 I just had to share this fishing story. Yesterday i spent a good part of the day out on the water in the rain. I had caught a couple on some oversized worms but nothing to brag about. I had tried just about everything in the book without a whole lot of luck so i decided to run down river to a shallow sand bar that extends out into deep water on both sides. I usually run a deep crank up both sides and have had some luck in the past but nothing was biting. i did some jigging and ran some craws but nothing. I could see fish smashing shad so i knew they were out there. Before i decided to pack up i thought id try one more thing. I had an old Rapala countdown in my tackle box that id had for years. It was one of those lures that just had gotten forgotten about once i started loading my tackle box with all the "new hot" lures. On my first cast a bass smashed it. Nothing big but it was a bass. Literally the next five or six casts the same thing happened. I was pulling in decent sized bass with this oldie but goodie lure over and over. I even tried other cranks that ran the same depth with the same color and they'd just leave it alone but as soon as i threw out the rapala they'd crush it. It was great. I had to have caught over twenty bass off that thing in less than an hour. I'll be the first to admit that i get caught up in all hype over the new lures out there. i have been caught by new lures more than i even want to talk about. It just goes to show that some lures just get it done and theres no explanation for it and never throw old faithful away for the new hotness. Sorry so long. I just wanted to share for other beginners like me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
