Well, I actually started to believe that with the muddy flood we have in iowa city that the eyes couldn’t even see my offerings. I was gladly proven wrong last night after work. Twgohawks and I managed 8 nice eyes and 10 nice whities in a little slack water area we found. The water is dirty as heck so brown/chartreuse and brown/orange were good colors. I was using an 1/8oz BFT jig w/ 3″ power bait in the colors I mentioned. The fish that found the bait in front of them absolutely slammed the jigs. It’s been raining all day but the water can get any dirtier so I’ll be back at it tonight. Right now w/ the raging current look to any cuts in the bank line that offer a big eddy w/ slack water near shore. Some of our fish were right in the brush along shore. The males were milking but we also got a couple nice females that were still fat. I lost a hog female as well (of course!). Better go get after em before it’s too late.
