Re: Targeting post spawned bass in CA Delta

Absolutely, I am of the firm belief these fish use the same migratory routes from pre-spawn to post spawn to winter. Those fish to me sound like they are in their winter time positions and they won’t go far from there to that pre-spawn locations. That Wadda jig is going to be great at locating those...

Re: Would you Pay the extra $$$$

Short answer is no the ROI just isn't there we are talking a 10-12 ROI. I guess if you factor in the weight to gas ratio maybe you could argue it to a 9-8yr ROI but that is still damn near the life of the asset and assumes you get 9-8yrs from a lithium battery.
