MMB 6 - Field Testing Cabin Creek Baits [DAY 1]

#TheHuntFor250 continues!

Do you know what you’re supposed to do when life gives you lemons?

That’s right… catch more bass.

This was definitely one of those trips to a new lake where things seemed to be going from bad to worse. Poison ivy seemed imminent. Not even a tap for the first hour… frustration setting in… but then I came upon a cool little area that was tucked away, and it all turned around. Really a fun day.
