Metal lips can be pain to build (to make it swim exactly the way you want, that is) but equally rewarding. ~30 inches, released.

(Apologies on re-post from plug building)

Gotten out twice in the past week and managed three decent fish...which is awesome...

 

BUT, got buzzed by a group of nice stripers yesterday while out staring at sand and missed the shot.

 

AARGGHHHH!!!! Best shot I've had at one since 2016 and I botched it. So pissed. LOL!!

 

Oh well, at least the butts are pretty. ; p

first metal lip fish ever on this Winch’s soft tail. I am a believer!

Congrats on the Metal lip catch, hard to make believers out of people, but I am also guilty of not throwing them enough..

Started out the day with gorgeous blue sky, not so much wind (but, it pick up later on the day), was grubbing for perch briefly, until the birds show up. Switched to a micky jig and cast out into the trough, I did not like the distance were the jig landed. It was way short where I wanted. But I had no choice, because the setup I was using was barely making it out to the trough. But, you never know, miracles happen. After a few casts, the rod tip went down hard. And then I realize I was fighting the fish, after a few tuck, Fish taco for dinner tonight
