Re: Hanging up in Lily Pads
Using the double weed guard like Rip works well for me in the pads! Also letting the fly sit in the pockets and twitching.
Also I use a flat shaped deer hair bug that most of the time the hook point rides up so I can't skitter it across the pads . Similiarly a ride up point weed less bucktail that I skitter across for Pickeral in the spring . Deadly!
Last nite my son caught a huge Pumpkinseed in the pads that probably weighed a pound plus 5 lbs of weed to add to the mess . Getting in the pads in the daytime is many times a key to getting fish. As dark rolls around the edges of these same pads seems to be the ticket!
