My favorite way to fish is flipping heavy cover and Beaver offers a lot of that. Flooded bushes every where. So that's what I did all day.. switching from a half ounce and one ounce weight. For probably the first hour and a half I didn't get anything..not sniffs or bites. It was dead calm and clear blue skies. Finally I pitch next to a a point of a bush and instantly get bit. Set the hook and it goes probably 1.5. it was the start of a pretty productive hour. After about 2 more smaller ones I make an awesome flip under a hanging branch and feel the tick. I set the hook and it's just weight..but I can feel the head shake so I know I got something. Just kept the line tight and let it work itself out. Finally getting a look at it and it's a big'n. After a fun fight I get it in the boat and it goes 5.05. That's why I love this kind of fishing. I ended up getting a couple more smaller ones and called it a day around 2:30. Beaver has been good to me this year.
