White curly tail grubs were the ticket. Maybe next year I'll hone in on tournament style fishing.

It's hard to be 90% consistent when landing them, with all the head shaking and jumping. So far, I've always felt it best to always keep the rod down unless they are near snaggy structure.

Totally agree. I always try to knock a jump down when I can by keeping the rod low and constantly changing the angle. Unfortunately this was at the end of a long cast and I thought it was a snag when it hit because it just felt like the lure stopped dead cold. With that much line out, I don't know that there is anything that could have been done - but it doesn't stop me from replaying it a thousand times a day in my head :)

I know that feeling! Hook into one after a far cast, and you think to yourself, it's going to jump a few times before it gets to me and you might lose it...sometimes I wish they stayed down like carp
