I recently fished the Pell City Civitan Invitational on Lake Logan Martin, a lake I have never fished before. Luckily, I fished it with a good friend of mine who knew the lake well. We were the third boat to blast off and the wind met us at our first fishing spot, blowing at least ten to twelve miles per hour. Knowing that the first cold front of the season had just moved through, and after throwing a Xcaliber XR50 rattletrap for five casts, I just thought to myself, “why am I still throwing this? They won’t be chasing fast moving bait after a front.” I then went for the Missile Baits Warlock Shaky Head Jig with a Fuse 4.4 in green pumpkin, also from Missile Baits., and didn’t throw another bait all day. We instantly started catching fish in the sloughs and cuts out of the wind around the boat houses that were in those sloughs. Casting to the posts and to the front of the boat houses is how we caught out best fish, letting the shaky head fall all the way to the bottom, then slowly working it by giving it slow twitches. Granted we didn’t catch many fish with size, we caught enough to net us a top 25 in the 50 boat field. I strongly encourage you, to if you haven’t already, to try out Logan Martin’s awesome spotted bass fishery.
Safe Boating and Tight Lines!
