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 Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.
