I saw the wind blowing into one of my favorite coves on TR yesterday afternoon and found them stacked in there. I initially threw a single 5″ prototype swimbait in the area and had a football shaped spot come from behind and grab the tail, I got excited and pulled it from it and the bait was pulled down the hook. I switched to the A-rig with some smaller baits and on a short cast to check the rig, 3 fish swarmed it and I caught that SM pictured in the middle. Believe it or not, that’s a 3 pounder, I had so many layers on that it made it look small.

The fish were not that deep either, the one fish nearly hit the rig at the surface pulling it out of the water. It was on a bluffy bank, if I were in a boat/kayak I would definitely figure 8 the rig once it’s close, that’s how I caught 2 of them. I landed 4 and missed 6 in about 30 minutes.
