My Bass fishing received a well timed boost last week with a couple of decent sessions. I went back to what I know and rekindled my relationship with the X-Layer with instant reward. Not that I had gone off these lures, I just wanted to use everything else I had instead, and this had kind of confused my fishing a bit.
