im excited to try the crawdad, the picture doesn't do it justice. the mice is so much fun to watch em hit it, but it's the hardest thing i have to actualy set the hook. so i was thinking about getting treble hooks and put em on the back or my just some 3/0 hooks looped in behind the flashers

That looped behind the flasher thing sounds like it might be the ticket those mice get hammered but I agree the hookset has been tough. Is that a dahlberg crawdad lure ? TT posted a link to a video on those and they look awesome. I really think that top dawg will be a killer during the spawn too!

Nice deal, I too got a bunch of stuff that I got recently, but never had a real chance to fish yet. Nice rod by the way:D. I was thinking about taking my son down to Albany this Sunday and possibly trying Freeway, maybe I'll swing by and say what's up.

Will be out of town this weeked Ryan :( and FP the nice thing about the craws I got are that they can also be jiged, I didn't even feel either of the fish felt like a snag, water is freezing and they're still moving slow. The other thing about those particular craws is that they come with extra top halts that are rubber so you can replace em. I picked up an extra one thats got your name on it. I wish it's warm up and stop raining! The red barn kinda by the dock has water coming into it now the waters so much higher

Oh and not to jack this thread or anything but I have heard that a bass' eyes will be in the same position they were lookin when they take the bait when you yard them out, which can tell you if they are bottom or top feeding .Looks like TRs is lookin down.

Sounds like a plan... Ive seen other Albany posts of people catching decent size bass this month, maybe Freeway will produce. I need to make my way down there to fish the pond with you, Im a little weary with the small tires on the boat trailer. I might have to pick up a spare wheel before heading down.

I noticed that it's eyes seemed looking low, but thinking back I don't remember what any of the other fish I've caught looked like

I don't know anything specifically about bass, but fish in general will always try to keep it's eyes vertical (perpendicular to the horizon) no matter the position you keep them in. So their eyes will always point down when they're laid on their side out of water. Try it with the next fish you catch. Watch its eye as you rotate the fish from vertical to horizontal.
