Hackney milking the grass for bass

If you want to know exactly where Greg Hackney has had his success this week, check out this photo from Ken Golub, our boat driver and an Allstate sponsored pro angler from this area.
 
Golub just took his drone for a spin around Hackney. This aquatic vegetation, mostly milfoil, is in 8 to 10 feet of water. Hackney has been constantly pitching a jig into itmon short pendulum-swing casts, hopping it along the rocky bottom amongst the grass a few times, then making another pitch. He just caught the first dink we've seen him catch over the last three days. The vast majority of the bass Hackney has caught have been in the 3- to 4-pound range.
