Default Power Reeling a Bucktail Swimbait video

I got out early this morning and started doing a little topwater over structure on points and offshore. I'd drop the trolling motor in 60-70 feet of water and start easing into the structure. After the third stop and marking stripers at every stop I couldn't resist and dug out and tied on a Capt. Mack 2 ounce bucktail and a swimbait and dropped down. My biggest rod was my jig rod with 14lb test so I tied the bucktail on that. It didn't take long till it was "Fish On"!

Here's what I was using.

Yea, I think every lake is different. It was kinda tricky to get that fish to hit. I was watching on the graph as the fish chased the bait down to about a 60 foot bottom then I reeled it up and I could see the fish chasing it up. I stopped at about 30 feet and dropped it back down to the bottom and the fish chased it back down to the bottom. When I reeled it back up I slowed down a little and that's when he nailed it.

Nice fish Jim, I still haven't mastered the Power Reeling technique quite yet. I have seen people cast it straight back behind the boat if they pass over fish, I have also seen them used like this similar to how one would use a Ben Parker.
