Hi all, thanks for the replies to my " wish me luck" post yesterday. very good advice, I appreciate that. I thought for sure it would be a fish biting day. it was overcast, the wind was blowing off and on stirring up the water surface compared to the 90 degrees it was the day before. The only fish in site was the 6 or 7 incher that jumped out of the water near where my jig landed but not hooked to my jig, darn it. No swirls or tiny baitfish near the edges like I see most times, hmmm. Where were the fish? don't they roam around on overcast days? boy I have alot to learn.
I started with the beautiful blk and red jig with a blk and red garlic floatin ribbon tail worm, wow what a cool lookin presentation. I found the 1/2 oz jig a bit heavy for me so after a bit of jiggin around different spots I switched over to the 3/8 oz bluegill with a orangeish /clear flecked curly tail something which looked great also. Both looked good enough to eat I thought, lol. Now that weight felt easier for me to work with. The day got windier and colder so I didn't last much longer than 1 1/2 hours fishing with a friend. She didn't get a nibble either with her go to t rigged robo worm. Ok all teach me some more please. I'll be headin back to the same little lake but today is sunnier and windy.

Good report! Also Pro Reel is correct. You should fish the banks that the wind is blowing into because the wind is sending the bait fish into that direction. Change up your trailers also. I have 6 different types of trailers that I have been trying. So far I like the Berkley Chigger craw. It has great action in the water and with this football head when you stop it the claws are pointing strait up and with a little shake they give off some good motion in the water. Keep it up. Jig fishing is new to me as well so I know where you are coming from. The advice I have been getting has been great. Just wish I could get more time out on the water.
