Old School Still Works

Old School Still Works


Jeff Buckingham

Auburn AL

I've been fishing a local pond knowing some good bass exist in it. I decided to try it at night. After all the usual nighttime baits yeilded little success, I decided to dig a little deeper in the tackle box. I found my black Jitterbug and my luck changed. After catching a few small bass in a couple minutes, I hooked this nice one that I didn't even hear hit the bait. I was very pleased by how nice of bass it ended up being. I guess I have to start going old school a little more often.
