Credit the rain and a dropping barometer for getting the fish in high gear. I got all my fish on a combo bait of maize (2 kernels) and a pink artificial corn fished on the hair rig. I was also using a method ball packed around my three ounce sinker.
Over the years I have had some of my best big fish fishing on rainy and crappy days. This was just another example of fantastic fishing on a lousy day!
