East Metro bassin fun - old report

1 post in this topic

Old report - Was out last Sat. on small east metro lake, and we started slow, but ended up about 20 bass or so, at least. and the two biggest were 18.5" and 19". Most came on senkos, but the biggest two came on white Yum tubes. Nothing on cranks or topwaters, but we saw some bass hitting stuff on top. When we left, we decided to motor in real tight to shore, and holy cow did we see tons of bass, big and small, in the very shallow water. By the time we saw them, they were most likely spooked by us, but next time out I will try with smaller senkos right against the shoreline and against any and all small piece of wood/rock/etc.

We had fun, my borther got the most on red or purple senkos, I was using white senkos or white tubes, then switched to purple. Got the most bites and hookups on the weed edge. Most did not bite hard, just had to watch the line for movement, and then cross their eyes smile.gif It was fun.

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
