Yesterday the emails were rolling in from jig customers and friends who were on the water throwing my swim jig. It all started late morning when I received a series of emails from Frank Harvey. Frank is a loyal reader of this blog and a big fan of my Scout swim jigs. Here is what he wrote:
“Thank you Mr Swim Jig!” Simple and too the point as Frank had just landed a big Largemouth:
Congrats Frank on your great fish.
Then, later in the day, my good buddy Jim emailed me to tell me that he was able to connect with his first two river smallies for 2012. Both were caught on the swim jig and he posted a little video:
And, finally, late in the day I got an email from Rich Klockenga. Rich picked up some of my swim jigs at the Elmwood show. As far as I know he had never thrown a swim jig before. I had set him up with some jigs and the correct trailers at the show. He sent me this email:
Jonn, I made a trip to Snakeden today to give your Swim Jigs a workout that I bought at the Elmwood show. Windy as hell and warm today put some nice bass up into the shallower water. I used the 1/4 oz. White with white swim tail most of the morning. I think the name on the jig box is money and I was in the money on the bass this morning. 15 hits and 11 nice bass came to the shore. The fish ranged from 13 to 17 inches with almost all of them 15 to 17 inches and all feisty. I tried the Bluegill color and dark tail but switched back to the white on white to catch all the fish. The hooks are awesome sharp. A windy day it was today and I’ll be out again in the morning. I’ve got some pictures from my phone but they aren’t as good as my camera usually takes. It’s difficult taking pictures by yourself.
I really enjoyed talking to you last Saturday and the seminar was terrific. The Swin Jigs are going to get some more workouts including the 3/8th size.
And, here are a couple of pics from his exciting day:
Quite a day on the bass fishing front. I really hated to be at work and not fishing. All that warm weather and full moon put the bass on the feed.
AS ALWAYS…...........HAIL TO THE SMALLIE
