Another Mid-October trip, 7 bass. Two @ 32 inches, two @ 30 inches, one @ 28 inches and two @25 inches. Six bass between 2:45 and 4:30 . One on each of Coltsniper Jerkbait and Sebile Stick Shad and the rest on Super Strike Darters. Then one on a bucktail around 9:00. Water needed to be moving. Also buried a hook in my finger while plug was attached to a Bass. Good thing I had my small bolt cutters with me (was 3/4 miles from Outlander). Cut hook, released Bass and pulled out hook and continued fishing.
