What are the bass biting?

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone I was wondering what the bass are biting the most often. I don't need to know lakes that are hot, I just want to know what people are catching lunker largemouths on. Any information would be greatly appreciated. grin.gif

I'm not a bass guy, but we were fishin for some eyes on an area lake a few nights ago with light jigs and crawlers and ran into quite a few very nice largemouths. They were picking it up right off the bottom in 20'-27' off the end of a long underwater point with a pretty steep break. The weedline was at 14'. Two of them hit & missed and then came back within a few seconds for more. I don't know if that translates to plastics because we'd been there a few days before and were using powerbait crawlers and only caught one bass. They may have been just taste testing to make sure it was real smile.gif

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
