Default First fish in the new Outback

IWell, yesterday I was able to break in the new Outback. Decided I would launch at the Johnson Beach Boat ramp and fish the mouth of Bayou Chico. Pull up at about 4:15-4:30pm, get launched and am peddling to my first dock and a dolphin surface at my 7'Oclock and showers me . After a few choice words I work my way over to the marina across the bayou.

A few casts in my topwater gets slurped, fight the fish for a second and then it comes unbuttoned. Got a good look before and it was a small trout. Work my way into the marina and get popped, again short fight and another trout comes un-buttoned. I started paying more attention and realized I could see the fish stalking the bait from about a foot below the bait. After 2 more fish come unbuttoned I switched to the MR-17.

First two hits... same results. short fights and the fish came unbuttoned. Came to the conclusion that I was working the bait to aggressively and not giving the fish a good target. So I peddle over to the original position that I was run off from by flipper and start waxing them. In a matter of 20-30 mins I have 7 small specks in the boat. All ranging from the 12in-15in's. No studs by any means but it was nice to break in the new rig.

FiancÚ came by to check out the new rig and she digs the new whip! lol

Pics to come!
