Great look Jorge. Imitation of a wounded baitfish struggling st the surface? I know of a lake where the small striped bass seem to chase schools of baitfish and “key in” on the wounded ones left after the attack.

That’s the idea to work this pattern trying to imitate the movement of a wounded baitfish ;-)

This would be killer on lake guntersville in late fall and winter. White bass school up threadfins in bait balls and then insanity ensues. It’s quite fun to watch!

@trublubug what’s the lake called

@infinity flies Lucas, Lake Nochamixon in the area known as Three Mile Run. Most activity occurs at dusk and after. After Jorge’s post, I sent a few of these out for testing to Lake Mead and also to Toledo Bend Lake. A few other lakes without strippers but with plenty of white bass also. Worked well on largemouths in remaining test areas too both impoundments and streams. I’ve been thinking this fly of @nerone would call to them anywhere. I haven’t gotten around to trying it for muskies but bet it would be great if beefed up to Muskie size.

Thanks @trublubug have you ever thought of trying it at Marsh Creek lake

@infinity flies Haven’t fished Marsh Creek in a while. Used to be a fairly regular visit before both my fishing buddies passed away. Think you are on to a great idea Lucas. Will have to think about a visit there. Do you fish it regularly?

Just a thought. That weedless Jerkfly on the offset hook you posted should kill them fished along the rip rap at the edge of the lake opposite the dam. Maybe the Tiger Muskies would like Jorge’s fly. Hopewell lake at French Creek State Park would be another option for muskie fishing with this fly @infinity flies

Thanks for the response @trublubug I caught the smallmouth that I posted there too. I will post some pictures from there from earlier in my fishing career.
