Woke up this morning to a wind storm and decided to go fishing anyway.On the drive to Folsom Lake I received a call from pro-angler and friend Ron Howe.Ron told me I should pick-up the Alabama rig and commit to it for three hour’s before turning to my confidence lure’s like drop-shot and jig’s. Having never caught a bass before on the A-rig I was reluctant but agreed. Got the boat launched at about 8:00 and headed up the south fork to the first rock wall with point’s.The water temp was 50 degree’s with a slight stain.Being true to my word I picked up my Gary Dobyns 766 champion series flipping stick spooled with 60 lb P-line braid and the A-rig tied on.One hour into the day and I was already starting to second guess my decision.Then it happened,my first A-rig bass,it hit so hard I thought I was hung up and actually tried to shake it lose before realizing it was a bass.After a great fight I swung the fish into the boat.it was clear that I had just boated my biggest Folsom spot ever, 5.8 lb’s.not a good day to forget the camara.After releasing the fish with a kiss and a thank you I continued with the same pattern to witch I was rewarded with a three pound spot about an hour later also on a rocky point. Along the way I was graphing bait in 10 to 15 feet of water with a few fish on them but never stopped to target them because I was having to much fun with the A-rig. I keep this up for the next few hour’s with my Minn-Kota trolling motor really having to earn it’s keep until the water got so big it was time to get back.When you’re out by yourself it’s not smart to ignore safety and in these type of conditions I really appreciate my 21 foot Skeeter boat. So I guess the lesson of the day is to make sure you have the right tool’s,don’t be afraid to try something new and go fishing on the bad day’s to.You might just catch the fish of a life time. Good Luck and may all your fish be big.
