I was feeling experimental when I got out of my car at Rathje this morning. So I grabbed a plano box of plastics in which I keep a variety of baits, but for some reason, rarely use. After catching a couple small bass on a wacky rigged fluke(my "go-to" lately), I decided to switch over to something from my plastics box.

I spotted a YUM Money Craw. It was from the first plastics pack that I bought last year when I was getting into fishing. I tried it a few times but then gave up. But I remembered Marty's post, and decided to give it a try. It's not the exact same bait, or even the same color, but whatever.

I almost immediately caught this nice one, topwater, after casting to the middle of the aerator. I caught 2 more after this, both top water.

You may want to try the yum pappis and a 1/16 jig head, I know Woz LOVES them.

Hey thanks! I went on vacation for a few days after writing the original post. I didn't get any fishing in(despite spending the time away on a Florida beach!), so I am especially pumped to see the honor bestowed upon me. It's back to work tomorrow, but not before visiting my favorite local pond for another go with the YUM Money Craws!

Congrats on the COTD Redhook! You learned too. Just pay attention to what Wacky Bass uses, he catches fish.

Nanook: The COTD honors are the prize. If anything Yum may win when I pick up a bag of Money Craws since I know two people who have caught bass on em. ;-)
