Best lure for schooling bass
A word of warning though.....you can't cast these any distance on line larger than 6#, and Nanofil works great.
These used to work wonders back when there was schooling action, at the outlet at Decker, have always been effective in "Strop's" outlet, and even work well split-shot rigged when the bass aren't on top, (both in the above lakes, + Travis, Buch, and G.T.)
Once again, the color is silver/pepper shiner.....they must be rigged carefully on a #1 or #2 hook to ride straight, and they are very difficult to cast. When retreiving, a slow steady retreive ,with a wake on top, is most effective.
I have one rod especially rigged for this, but I'm sure it would work great with a launcher.
Trust me on this one...........you'll be glad you did.

The mini flukes are pretty similar to that. Pet spoons on launchers and 2 inch sassy shad on 1/8 oz head are also good on light line. Clear tiny torpedo also works. Hope they're schooling at Buch in AM; will be throwing 6 inch topwaters for the stripers: they cast easy! Even on heavy line!

Thanks lowbass. Will keep it in mind.
Ro, have an alternate plan because we (was with JT) didn't find any schooling action this morn. MAybe Brandon and that bunch did better, but hadn't the last I heard.
Did ok on live bait. Thought I'd leave it up to JT to make a full report (or give me a shout).

A baby torpedo is good. Also a Little George will catch''em. Cast the Little George past them and wind it back through fast. Nice thing about a Little George is that you can cast it a mile.

Cotton Cordell Gay Blade. Its got some weight to cast far and is small. Did well on Bastrop with it, but the hooks suck.2013 Wilderness Commander 120 - Camo2013 Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 12 - Ivory Dune2011 KATS Lake Angler Division - Lake Georgetown - 2nd Place2011 KATS Lake Angler Division - Lake Travis (Muleshoe) - 1st Place2012 KATS Team Charity Event - 2nd Place2012 TKA - Lake Bastrop (1/22) - 2nd Place2013 CCKFTS - Lake Austin - 3rd Place2013 KATS Pro Division - Decker - 1st Place

I'm a big fan of Nanofil line your giving me the added casting distance to reach them with a weightless fluke. This year, they added a heavier Nano, 14 and 17#. Just get in the habit of retiring more often than you usually do.
