Chantilly aldie

Minus1, rattletrap,  j&p

Been getting some Curly class middleweights.
Just fall fat as can be.  2 to 4# fish on best days.
Most of the good ones end up being muskie type ambushes at short range.
I have pics I will text to anyone that cares to attach to post.

Re: Chantilly aldie

The one where you can see my boots was like Ashburn that was the minus one.
You're asking about the yo-yo ....yes I work a yoyo into the rattletrap retrieve when I'm able to according to the retrieve angle and what else is going on.
The fish in the last photo I caught on the rattletrap yo-yo.
I burn the bait all the way back up to the bank ripping it you know on the last Rip i overpowered it just a touch it -skipped out of the water exactly like a fleeing minnow -when it's went back into the water was when I got the strike -right in front of me.
I wrasseled that 1

Re: Chantilly aldie

I keep feeling around for the rattletrap retrieve of the day.
Get a bite, get a clue, sometimes start wacking them.
Sometimes they dont want it.
But when a true rattletrap bite happens,  it's a great day

Usually the clearer the water, the more I cook it. I think pond bass get drawn in. You burning that thing, it going by, they start watching.
I multiple cast often. I think they get seduced, then react when u tick a twig or some vegetation

Re: Chantilly aldie

They were on the trap a bit today. I didn't fish myself to death.
Maybe a couple 14" were best. Couple mighty max 8inch types.
Water very clear,  not my "big fish" pond either.
But a half dozen or better is a good day.
My arm can only take so much fishing after a days work
