Cool. I fished the piney for a little while yesterday. Besides bluegill I caught a rock bass and baby smallmouth on a gold trout magnet. I need to get some more jig heads and curl tail grubs though. Only grubs I have are zoom fat Alberta which I will use when the water goes up. And I'll have to get a couple more rooster tails too.
I hate to give away secrets but... A spider slider head rig with a grub is my go to bait on the river when wading. It doesn't get hung up in the rocks or brush. Add a root beer or chartreuse grub and you're set. Just stay out my holes!
I use the 1/8 or 1/4 oz head according to where I am fishing and water depth. Don't just reel it straight back... Pump it a little. I've been sight fishing smallmouth that would let you just reel it by them all day and not bite... A few pumps and they kill it.
The spider slider heads are costly... But you don't loose them like regular heads since you rig it weedless.
Know God, know peace. No God, no peace!
