    Got out a few times for my favorite time of year (February-June). It’s hasn’t been killer but the better ones are out. Missed a really good one today.

    I’m really loving the 4” MC slug. I’ve fished it plenty but I think I figured out what works best for me. Right now that’s a 6’ 6-15# rod and Pflueger president. 15# braid to 12# 3’ leader.
    I initially rigged it with a , I think, Owner 1/4oz offset. Switched to the those Savage Gear 1/8oz weighted hooks. I like the smaller hook for less eyeball hook sets.

    The setup is light and fun to fish. Makes a 12” fish feel like a bruiser. Fish have been close and eating it on the pause.

    3” MC paddle tail hasn’t disappointed either (per usual)Here’s a couple pictures.
