    Default New Technique Lands My First Legal Checker of 2017

    Hey guys,

    Thanks to those who offered advice on my previous thread. I tried out the drop shot with a pearl white 5" Zoom super fluke this morning at my usual AO.

    I'd been swinging the LC around but the only takers were the shorties who were less lazy and more willing to work for a meal in the colder conditions.

    Landed 5 fish this morning on the new set up: 2 short johnny bass, a short sandy and two calicos which culminated in this nice legal. Taped out to 15"

    The prime season's gonna be here before we know it and I feel more ready than ever with a new technique in my arsenal! Thanks again for the continued guidance and support, FNN.

    You guys are the best.
