We hit the water at Lattins at 6. No one there but us. :) Time for topwater, so fished a sammy for awhile getting three smallies to grab it , only to lose them on the jump. A lgmouth finally came to the boat. My buddy was wacky rigging a senco and had more in the boat by this time, so I changed out and started to get fish too. Once the sun came all the way out from the fog and a slight breeze started, on to a white spinnerbait and more smallies came to the boat. Great day with nice weather, over 30 fish AND NO JET SKI'S. The smallies seem to still be on bed as they were beat up some. All smallies also caught in shallow water.

Sencos are IMO the best bass bait ever.
Sounds like you had a good time.

Your right, if they don't bite a senco. Go Home

I always liked the Jersey Rig. Same idea as the Senco, but not flavored, and much smaller profile. For topwater, I like to walk a rattlin chug bug. Been a long time since I've been on Candlewood. Only been there twice. Just too far for me.
