You remember this fish:
Nick Dulleck — ketcher of that 11-04 spot from “Dullard’s Scar,” CA on Feb 12 — released his giant spot killah bait combo: Dirty Jigs Finesse Football Jig with a Yamamoto Double Tail Grub trailer. Still WILL NOT release the exact colors — cuz he’s a fisherman! — but here’s a pic he sent in:

Got a bunch o’ peeves about launch ramps, fishin’ “buds” and lack of on-the-water manners, but…that’s it? Nothing ticks you off about the Elitists? MLFers? Bassin’ TV? Sponsorship talk?? Bassin’ websites? YouTube vids?? C’MON bass-heads!
