Its still a bit cold up here. Usually in winter, when I lived in Longview, TX, not far from Shreveport, we would burn spinner baits, rattle traps, and crank baits trying to get reaction bites. We would do this all day and end up with at least a few fish to show for it.
I personally love it down there around the end of march. I dream of slow rolling spinner baits trying to trigger the pre-spawn bite.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.
