LPf 8/4/19 Pfloating Worm
Yesterday, I got on early and quickly found them. I was throwing WW semi-shallow and getting the easy bites.
This morning, I got waylaid as I prepared to leave the house. I was able to finally break loose and I made it to the lake at 10:30am. I fished for two hours without so much as a nibble.
As I was scanning the water, I noticed a lure floating at the surface. I picked the lure from the water and examined it. It was a delicate soft plastic, clearly ripped from a worm hook by a marauding predator.
I hailed a nearby yakker and asked if the worm was his. He replied in the affirmative by raising his arm. I asked if he wanted it back. He said I could keep it.
Then he said if I came alongside, he would give some new ones. I gradually eased over and he handed me a clear retail grade ziploc with six worms. I asked how he was rigging it, so I copied his set-up and cast out. The lure sank to the bottom. I lifted the rod tip... BAM! Fish on!
I was amazed! I asked him where I could buy these worms. He shook his head and said, "You can't buy them, I make them!"
I was stunned. The quality of these worms is exquisite. I complimented him on his craftsmanship. Very fluid movement and elaborate lamination.
I asked him what was the name of the color of the worm I was using. He named the three dyes he uses in the plastic. I said, "Let's call it spiderman."
We stayed on his spot and fished his worms, doubling up on several occasions. He left at 2:30, surrendering the spot to me. I stayed past 3pm,
that's when I broke off a big'un with the last floating worm and headed in.

Great looking fish! Congrats!
With all that talk about these awesome worms, I'd have thought you'd post a pic of one of them. Please do! I'm curious now....

How did you guys hook those worms? Texas? Wacky?
I did have a similar rubber many years ago when Travis was 60' below normal and trolled it behind my kayak in front of Mansfield Dam on a shakeyhead hook and surprisingly caught a decent striped bass in the middle of the day.

This afternoon I gave Pfork a break and dragged the yak down to the Catch & Release Pond. I like being outside for warm summer afternoons. I thought I'd better fish the C&R before it boiled dry. I caught two fish on five strikes, all wacky senko.
Here's the best C&R fish.
