  • James River Ol' Hookers Bass Tourney

    I have to brag a little on my son Mike (Bassmstr7). He skipped church 😬 and fished the team tourney on the James on Sunday put on by Ol' Hookers. They have a four fish limit and Mike weighed in like 16.9 lbs and won both 1st place and big fish, fishing by himself. Just have to brag a little because I'm so proud of him😄

    Yeah, a 4plus average will get you a check about 99% of the time.

              Met him yesterday. We helped each other unloading/loading boats. He's a very nice young man. Glad for him having a nice bag, especially with those water conditions. Great job.

                          Thanks guys, thanks Dad, always feels good to make a father proud. Hello again keldog, it was nice meeting you and thanks again for your help at the ramp. I had a great day and it was awesome to win. I will leave all the bragging to my father though as I know what it is to be on the bottom tier too :cool: The tourney launched out of Hopewell and I decided to run river down and fish some major creeks. The first area I fished was the type that I knew had some fish in it and I could work it over with a few baits and try to get a clue as to what I could catch them on throughout the day. I threw a finesse jig, drop shot, grub, umbrella rig, blade bait and jerkbait. I combed the area and was getting bit the best on the blade bait. I spent a couple hours there and managed to come out with 3 keepers but not the quality I knew it would take to win. The tide had dropped so I ran back up to the creek and got on a blade bait bite. I have to say thanks to my friend Clay lewis and Jim Whitman for really showing me how to throw a blade bait in the winter. They both showed me what they are capable of when fished correctly. I wouldn't have ever thought you could throw some 1/2oz piece of metal with 2 trebles on it in a river or lake without constantly staying hung up, but you can. Presentation is key. My biggest fish(5.90) came on a finesse jig on a laydown and the other 3 I weighed in came on the blade bait close to the creek channel, including one 5.50, so they will catch big fish too.
                          You cant catch'em if your baits not in tha water.

                              That's awesome Mike. I've been wanting to hit the chick with the blades and see how well it works out. Every winter I want to go but never do. I think I will this year and soon. Congratulations my friend. Good job.
