Had a sponsor meeting on my boat Tuesday October 31st with Randy Emerich of Big Dady Rods and Bob Odell of Trolling Motors 101. The water had come up a foot but the water temp was still 49 to 52 degrees with a medium stain. Bob had brought a refurbished Ultrex 112 of mine to install on my boat and then the three of us went fishing. I was trying out the new LEW’S Hyperspeed baitcaster reel on my Big Dady jigging rod with a 1/8oz jig with a Ragetail 2.75 swimmer and it worked great! Randy put on a clinic with an Adams ATAK crank and LEW’S reel. Bob was using various plastics and did well. We fished for about 4hrs and was boating smallmouth bass at 13/hr and many big quality fish. As with most of our sponsor meetings, we then went to lunch! Always fun with these guys!
