A Chinese New Year party to celebrate the Year of the Rooster at the UA Ferguson Center on Jan. 29 drew more than 400 attendees from Chinese and local families and University faculty and staff.
“The hole was near a spawning area and was 25- to 30-feet-deep in the middle. The stumps were right below the surface. We used a Sexy Ghost Minnow-colored Strike King KVD Jerkbait, which is a little unconventional this early in the season. Not many teams were throwing jerkbaits because the fish aren’t active enough yet. Within minutes we had a couple of bass that weighed around 5 pounds, and then I hooked into one that was 9 pounds. By 10 a.m. we had four fish that weighed about 20 pounds and we were shaking from excitement.”
