My buddy is fishing the NBW this weekend, so I can't tell you where he was prefishing, but I can tell you the 6" Baitsmith in spring hitch color was working wonders for anyone willing to venture into the creeks.
I know you're kidding but I've seen it done quite often when I used to live in Holiday Harbor. It's simply amazing to see 2 or 3 bass in the 7 to 10+ pound class fighting each other to get at the hitch. They would rarely actually hook a bass that way because they would set the hook thinking they hooked a bass when actually the bass just wouldn't let go of the hitch until the guy started to lift it out of the water. It was quite a show.
