I wish I could post my digital pics. The size limit seems to be prohibitive. I would appreciate some advice, as some members seem to have no trouble posting nice pictures.
Friday a buddy and I went out, amid high skies, and warm sunny weather. Fishing, as with last weekend was still very much on the jog bite, and, if we had not been fishing horribly, we would likely have close to duplicated the previous weekend's take.
If someone will tell me how to post 5 meg pics on this site, I've got both the 4.5 pound LM's photographed (nice to be able to fish with a buddy, and a camera!). Dummy that I am, lifting another LM over five into the boat the line broke (LOL). We saw the fish jump ten minutes later with the jig in its mouth - what a slob! Between the two of us, even amid rotted line on my buddy's reel which broke three fish off, and my two lost fish (the other one snagging the jig on a tree), had 16-17 bites on the day on... guess what bait!!!
Satuday, a short fishing day - 7 -11 a.m., I still managed seven largemouths, though they did seem to shrink on the second post-front day. estimated my best five not more than 13 lbs. Still great to get bit in November! As they have been bites were stacked in small areas. If you find them, they bite!

p.s. I really would appreciate any advice on posting pics. These are pretty nice, though nothing like last week!

Western - steep banks seem to be the ticket- but available also in the East section, just fewer and farther between. It's easier to fish 15-25 feet ten feet from the bank than twenty feet from the bank though I found some that way also. You dig?

Steep banks are definitely the ticket this time of the year !

I agree, the Western section is much better for steep banks, that's why I'm putting an additional boat there next year.

If i wasn't such a dick for trying other techniques, I'd carry one or two rods, with a heavy jig, and light (spinning) jig, and maybe a jigging spoon. but I have to try the blade, crank, and jerkbait too!We did get into a slow rolled spinnerbait bite a few years ago with water temps in the forties. Big fish!

The slow rolled spinnerbait is extremely productive for me in the fall....sometimes even the crankbait....but absolutely, positevely, my #1 Big Bass producer in the fall is the Jig-n-Pig....hands down !!!

Croton Res

Hey Pigsticker and BassStalker, I was out on West end of Croton also Sat and Sun. and did very good using same tech. Jig and Pig on steep shores in 10 to 20 ft. All fish in 3 to 4 lb class. Also got some real nice lm on silver buddies in 40+ ft of water.Were mixed in with lots of crappies.Water temps went from 52 in the morning to 54 in the afternoon. Next Weekend last days on res. so will make it out there Fri. Sat and Sun.Boy Im gonna miss it out there.If weather stays decent, I'll have to find some small lake to get out or take up my buddy's invite and go slam some stripers on rattle traps and jigs. Opposite Glen Island Casino they get so thick now almost every cast or you can't get jig to bottmo wiht out getting hit. All fish are anywhere from2-3 lbs up to 20 lbs. Footballs

Pigsticker, nice job! Yes, the jig-n-pig is a great producer this time of year, and that location and depth are key on Croton right now.

HugeFish4 said it best with the picture posting idea. Having a website to put your pictures on allows you to link to them in posts, getting around the size and number restrictions you face when attaching them to posts.

Most internet service providers provide you with some webspace; you just have to learn how to upload images to it and link to them. It isn't too hard, but it takes some knowledge of web pages and you have to know how to upload/link to your personal webspace.

Thanks. The relatively few times I'm able to plan ahead enough to actually fish with someone, AND catch big fish, AND have a camera along, merit looking into that for sure. Thanks guys.
