“I got him!”

Every now and then I share a boat with somebody who yells those three words whenever he hooks a good fish.  I always feel like hollering back.  What I want to say is: “Partner, you ain’t got squat until we get that fish in the net.”

Before I got all wrapped up in 20+ foot bass boats, 70 mph runs and trophy bass (largemouth and smallmouth), I  spent many a day in a Basshunter pvc 2-man boat with a 46lb thrust trolling motor.  It was how I introduced my then 5 year old daughter to real fishing.  She learned how to launch the boat and troll an electric motor only lake.  At the end of the day we cleaned our catch and had the ultimate reward of a crappie dinner complete with hush puppies and coleslaw.  As a matter of fact, that little boat still sits on a trailer tarped up and stored behind my house.

There is no doubt in my mind that the Yamamoto Hula Grub is one of the most versatile baits I fish. It was perhaps one of the first baits I ever fished from Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits and one key word in the company name, “custom”, sums it up perfectly. The Hula Grub is part finesse, part power all wrapped up into one bait that can be fished in a variety of different ways and under many different situations. Over the years I have experimented with different retrieves and there are three that I mainly employ. They are three methods I recommend you’re familiar with, whether you have fished this bait before or not.

After finishing my tournament season at the BASS Southern Open on Smith Lake in early October, I traveled to Europe to visit my brother and sister-in-law who live in Prague.  Prague, the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic, is beautiful and the local cuisine is really good—especially if you’re a carnivore like me. I explored the city mostly on foot, which kept my appetite a little more stoked than usual. This gave me an excuse to try a new Czech dish at every opportunity.

There was a small opening in the cover right up close to a submerged tree.

I eased our boat into position about 20-feet away and flipped my 5-inch Kut-Tail into the opening.  I left my bail open so the bait could fall straight down.  It was still falling when my line twitched and moved a couple of inches to the right.

I hit that fish hard.  I almost lost my grip on my rod as the fish that had smashed into my lure surged down and away.  A heartbeat later my line started coming up and then the fish broke water.
