I hardly want to use any other lure lately. It is just so much fun to fish with. Sure, with this tiny lure the fish are pretty small, but on UL gear that hardly matters. I have ordered some 2 1/2" Lit'l Fishies in chartreuse, and might go for the even bigger 3 1/2" ones. I am hoping to attract some larger bass with them.
Today I got two tiny bass and a nice bluegill. It is very tough to catch anything right now. I would much prefer to be pulling in ten fish a trip, but I am just happy to be catching anything right now. After getting skunked for a month I can truly say it is better than nothing!

This time it was the 2 1/2" silver/w black back. I almost didn't even know I had a fish. Just felt the slightest pull on my line, but when I set the hook he pulled pretty hard. I was using my ultra light rod with 4# line, so even a little guy like this can feel pretty big. Makes the little ones a lot more fun. When you use a heavy stiff rod like my ugly stick these guys feel like minnows, but on the UL they feel like 3 pounders!

I tried the Lit'l Fishies out at my Grandma's lake, but only the bluegills were hitting it at first so I changed up to worms, spinners, cranks, sticks, and even a grub, nothing. So I switched to some Gulp crawlers, and played with the bluegills awhile.
Once the sun sank a bit lower I threw out a husky jerk in firetiger and on the first cast I got slammed hard by the bass above. After that I had to leave for dinner, I had to abandon the lake right when they started biting, but I'll be going back!
As you can see I picked up some more Lit'l Fishes. I got some silver ones in 1" and 2 1/2". They were only .75 a pack at Wal-mart, so That rocked. I also picked up some more in chart from the tackle shop.

Yeah, I know the bass is little, but it's the lure i'm talkin' about. It's called the "Lit'l Fishie" Swimbait from Creme. Yeah that's right, another Creme lure. They have quickly become my favorite soft plastic company. Rapala being my favorite hard plastic maker.
I first came across this little bait at Wal-mart about a month ago and actually picked a three pack up. They were on clearance for .75, so I thought, What the heck, but after thinking about the limited space I had at the time in my SP box I put them back. Then a few days back I saw them again at a local tackle shop for .35 a piece with a small leadhead jig hook. This time I took one, in chartreuse, and the fish absolutely love it! It is kinda small so I am having some trouble setting the hook on larger fish, so I am going to get some larger ones that will hopefully solve that issue.
The Lit'l Fishie was first put out by the Knight lure company. In 1989 Knight and Creme merged and Creme took over the production of the Lit'l Fishie line. The one I have is actually an older Knight product. The guy that owns the tackle shop has quite a few older lures and such. I think he must have a back stock from 20 years ago!
Anyway, if you get a chance to try the Lit'l Fishie don't pass it up! They are a very fun lure, especially in the smaller size, because so many species will hit it. It's a great lure when you want to put down the worms, or cranks and just have a little fun!
