Details:First of all, huge thanks to jbigun for the advice!

Had last Friday off and hit a local pond. It was cold with falling temperatures from the previous day, overcast, and relatively windy. Not the best conditions but I was rewarded.

I found fish in shallow brush and the big ones at the bottom of the steepest rocky dropoffs where the wind was blowing. Dragging texas rigged plastics pegged with a tungsten weight did the trick. The bait had to be dragged very slowly. When targeting shallow cover, they wouldn't hit it on the drop. You had to just dead stick it.

Ended up with a 5 lb. 5 oz. beast with a giant head, a 4 lb. 1 oz chunk, and several 3.5 pounders. Smallest fish was still over 2 lbs. Didn't take pictures of all of them but it was a great day. I haven't caught quality like this in awhile. The quest for a 7 pounder continues though.
