Working the dam at Calling Panther Lake near Crystal Springs, I kept the boat parallel to the riprap and launched the long, thin Pro Pointer 100 jerkbait as close to the rocks as I could.
With three quick jerks of the rod tip, I put the lure to work.
And, then, I stopped and let the bait’s suspending characteristics do the work.
Since I was teaching the cold-water tactic to a friend, I started to count out loud: “One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi, four Mississippi, five Mississippi, six Mississippi… all the way to 15 Mississippi.”
