I decided to go small and throw a small 3.5” worm that is poured by Bass in the Hood. And paired it up with a custom 3/32 oz jig head with a weed guard also made by bass in the Hood. I grabbed my rod and took my dog (Storm) for a walk at the lake while stopping to cast here and there. I threw the bait on a Shimano Stradic Spinning reel, filled...
