So, put a little stink on the thing. Any large nymph, crawdad or generic bonefish pattern should work. A little bit of tinsel wouldn't hurt either as it improves visibility.
God, at this rate they'll probably give me a show following "Duck Dynasty". Anybody willing to grow a beard and be my sidekick/comic relief?
I've thought about using some spray but haven't as of yet. It would be nice to get into some carp but for now cats will do.
