Lake Toho

First thing this morning we pitched jerk shads around the maiden came and buggy whips. We would deliberately work the lures quickly across the thick grass and kill it in every opening. We'd let it drop and if a bass was close or following the lure they'd grab it the minute it started to fall. We fished the south end for a couple of hours and decided it was time for a few specs. Move out to deeper hydrilla grass beds and started our drifts. It didn't take long and three of the poles when down. We landed two of the three fish and they went about 1 to 1.5 lbs. Two really good fish. Continued the same drift and kept picking up several on each pass. It was nice having a GPS leaving a trail so we could revisit the spots we caught fish. We used small crappie jigs tipped with minnow.
