yep
i tried for years and i cant blame it on weather because there were all sorts of different weather conditions, with and without fronts passing.

i have found the day before and day of thanksgiving was usually great fishing but the day after was a struggle.

its gotten to the point i dont even go the friday after thanksgiving anymore, i just dont have any confidence in catching anything on that day.

seams its about the same for christmas eve and christmas day where those two days are usually great fishing but the day after christmas has always been a struggle for me.

Bridge fishing
mule is right jls you will never feel the bottom at the trestles fishing a 1/4oz. You need at least 3/8, 5/16, or even 1/2oz jig heads. 1/4oz is only used along the shorelines in lake p. You are wasting your time with a light jighead like that at the bridges. The main thing to keep in mind when fishing any of the bridges is to feel the bottom. That's where the fish will be.

troutman....I still learnin all this I fished the South Pass Manchac@Lake P w/1/4 oz there was way more tide movment then then there was@the trestle yesterdayand i caught fish on the 1/4 oz But like i said I'll be ready next trip so we'll see what works, Now far as all this twitchin the Rod like i see some do i think is way over doin it, I fished mine where i caught fish just hoppin on maybe 1-2 jerks, sometimes it didn't even get to sink to bottum&trout nail it My buddy&his freinds caught 75 on 1/4 oz jighead w/ super fluke Rainbow shad they all fished diff baits but same 1/4 oz head if you can feel bottum there w/ 1/4 you should beable to@11 trestle Now L&N is different story i seen it roll threw there /2 more like it there But thanks for good Info

Jarret is 100%. If you can feel the bottom at the Trestle with a 1/4 oz then its best to move on because theres no tide. When i jig its 3/8 - 1/2 oz. If you don't feel the bottom you're not down to the fish.

Tide
there was lil tide wasn't much put it was moving

Tide
I understand that you may have caught fish in south pass with 1/4oz jig heads with a good tidal movement. That means nothing at the bridges, those fish at south pass were probably suspended. Not the case at the bridges, these fish are on the bottom. 1/4oz will not get it done out there.

Bridges
Thanks troutman i do have few 3/8 oz jigheads some Golden eye from Dside&some w/white slender heads but larger hooks, So i need to get some 3/8&1/2 oz unpainted ones for the next time i hit the bridges
