Default Lunker hunting tomorrow

I'm heading out tomorrow to Flint Lake which is my favorite local water. I'm planning to be on the water by 4AM so I'll have a couple hours to work it before sunrise. But instead of looking for numbers of bass, I'm out for a pig. I have 6 rods, ready to go, but on one outfit, I'll be pitchin this offering in hope of getting a BIG bend in my rod. It's a 3/8 oz. Dirty Jigs No Jack Flippin Jig in green pumpkin craw. Added to it is a Reaction Innovations Double Wide Beaver with a green pumpkin top and orange brown belly. It measures 6 inches long and has a large profile to get that pigs attention. I'm going to be pitchin it into any form of cover I come across. Lilly pads, logs, piers, floating platforms, pockets and edges of mid depth weedbeds, and so on. It's a naturally formed lake, without any inflowing water. So there are no creekbeds, or submerged roadbeds or anything like that. I think I'll get just the right sinking speed and action I want with this presentation. At least I hope so!

Yep.....there's one thing about using a lure like that. If you get a bite, you know you've got a big one. Good luck, amigo.

Yeah, when it comes down to it...it's just a 3/8th oz. jig, albeit, a large profile. What's it sink rate?

If ya want a large profile lunker killer that is nearly weedless, and can be used very similiarly to a jig...

Yep, I have some swimbaits too. I have some larger jigs as well if needed. But I'm going to be pitchin shallow water first and am wanting a moderate fall rate, not a fast drop. If that don't work, I'll switch over to a heavier jig and look for a reaction bite on a faster falling bait. I'm going to be working the jig intially both on the bottom, and also swimming it around and inside the cover before sunrise. Once the sun is out, I'll be working it primarily up tight to the cover.

Ok, I'm glad to say I landed two bass on the jig. Unfortuantely they were only about 14 inches long, lol. The jig worked perfectly though, and the weight was exactly what I needed. Both bass were caught by swimming the jig through sparse grass using the rod tip to make it dance a bit. Dragging it on the ground, and pitching in tight to cover produced zilch. It was a tough day fishing with post frontal conditions and bright sunny cloudless skies. Both fish were caught just at sunrise. BUT, I did catch a pig, but not a bass. See it in the bragging section.
