Fishing a Spray Painted Frog & Burnt Stickbait (Sebile Pivot Frog & Strike King Ocho)

Fishing a Spray Painted Frog & Burnt Stickbait

One time I wanted to fish a frog for largemouth bass, but I lost my black frog a few days earlier and all I had left was a bright orange and chartreuse monstrosity (Sebile Pivot Frog). I wanted a more natural color… so I spray painted it.

It was ugly – but it worked.

I also wanted to fish a Strike King Ocho (stickbait), but the one I had been using was ripped after very little use. I figured there was more life in the bait… so I melted it with a lighter and stuck it back together.

It was shiny – but it worked.

Then my friend Leslie came to the lake with her poles and decided to make a few casts. She had not done so since her husband passed 3 years earlier. We got to fish together.

What a good day. Interesting – no doubt – but a good day.

Sometimes the good Lord puts you where you are supposed to be.

Time to fish.
