Afternoon Spybaiting video on Lanier

Thread starter #1
Yesterday afternoon I got out just before the storms hit and I guess the fish knew the weather was coming and turned on big time. I caught a few on topwater to start the afternoon but quickly realized they were liking the spybait. For those of you wondering about gear, I was using a Enigma Aaron's Edge 6'11" medium fast action tip with a Lew's speed spin reel loaded with 5lb fluorocarbon. You need to have your drag set right for 5lb test. Here's a little video I made.

Great fishing Jim. I got to look into getting one of them spybaits and try it out on allatoona.. Be careful with the lightning tho!

Thanks for sharing Jim, spybaiting sounds like you are doing something secretive for the Government or something?

Looks like a fun and effective way to catch ‘em. Good looking spots!
