Ah, now we got ya! :)
Glad to hear you won some Smackin' Good lures there, Seaclusion!
Check our site out: http://www.smacktackle.com
There is a tips and techniques section, as well as the forum, where you'll find fishing reports, etc.
I've fished them like a surface popper, twitching it out of the shadows into the light, BAM! big striper in the boat.
I've fished them real slow, night casting on Lake Cumberland, casting just to bank from boat, reel just fast enough to feel lure wiggle, which is almost slower than I can reel! :) Nothing like the strike of a Striper at midnight when you can't see, but man you FEEL IT!
I caught a hybrid bass on one this last Sat. night wading a warm water discharge on the Ohio River, snowing, windy, 20's, after sundown, nice way to spend a Saturday evening:
Do what you can to imitate the action of the shad or baitfish where you're fishing. A steady retrieve, not too fast, twitch every now and then.
Please let us know what you catch, pics if you can!
Congratulations, God bless
