Jerkbaits/ swimbaits/stickbait for bass- the winner is?


Recommended Posts

Ok it is well known I do not target largemouth. But that doesn't mean I don't know how to catch the green carp. With all the new baits that have come out I decided to put some to the test. Senko swimbaits, YUM swimbaits, Exude Comidas, YUM dingers and and an old standby Zoom super flukes as well as some buzzbaits and spinnerbaits. Joel Nelson and I headed to lake X which is known for an overabundance of largemouth and proceeded to to cast away. Buzzbaits and spinnerbaits did not catch a single bass but the others did. Winner by far was the stickbaits (Dingers and Comidas) followed by the two swimbaits. We caught bass shallow and deep with the stickbaits. Joel even tried Carolina rigging with a stickbait and found it to be effective for deep bass. Color of the stickbaits didn't matter. Big bluegills also took a liking to the 4" YUM dingers. They would grab the back end and hold on almost to the boat. We set up some panfish rods and used the stickbait to locate the deep holding gills an then would cast the panfish sized jigs into the school. I came away very impressed with the effectiveness a of stickbaits. I wonder if those Pool 4 eyes would hit a Senko ? I might even try rigging a YUM dinger instead of a crawler for Mille Lacs eyes. For those few times a year I do go bass fishing you can bet I'll have some stickbaits ready to go.

I'm just going to hop in here and agree with Mark. We've done a good deal of bass fishing on Minnetonka this year, and a lot of people have been following my suit. Started the year trying new things, hit a Comida and never looked back. Been using them pretty strictly almost all season.

The friends that I go out with are more of a "This looks shiny! I'll use it!" type of crowd, and the bass turnout was VERY one sided earlier this season. Once they started to switch to some plastics that I bought to try out (Comidas, Senkos, Dingers, and actually twister tails) they also started to hammer the bass.

I'm officially a believer, but so far only for bass. Bucketmouths seem to LOVE some of these plastics, especially over a silly old lure.

All great baits. But i swear by spinnerbaits. Terminator to be exact. Not the new ones they produce now, but the classic ones. Chartreuse is killer!

Every bait has it's place and time, for sure.

Jholland, I too use more Comidas a year than any other plastic. Maybe more than all other plastics combined. It's close at least. I really like that stickbait.

I second that. I've only caught more bass on black powerworm Texas rigged

Mark,

Congrats on showing it is OK to be multi-species. wink Walleyes and Bass are my top two.

And I agree with your results. I've been fishing stickbaits as my go-to bait for LM for 4 or 5 years now. My faves: Comidas and Senkos. The magic is all in the floppy but springy action, and these two are floppy without losing springiness. I also like to use Powerbait and Gulp shakey worms here, too, but not their other ones, the shakey worms just have the right action. I rig them wacky, weedless wacky, and t-rig.

For tougher conditions, I'll go to a carolina rig with a Gulp Floating Worm, or start drop shotting with Gulp or Powerbait shakey worms.

I stick with dark colors almost exclusively - black with blue flake, black with yellow swirl, dark purple with green flake, dark blue with silver flake, dark green with red flake... anything with subdued flake in a translucent or transparent dark color.

One of the coolest tips I found for someone trying to be multi-species walleye/bass on a budget: the live bait rigging rod with lindy or roach weights that you use for walleyes can make an excellent carolina rig, too, just set it up so you can quick change the leader and terminal tackle out.

BUT - My two Rapala DT-FLAT 03 sure-set shad crankbaits in chart/purple and green/bleeder are my best search lure for LM, hands down. These things are deadly.

      Onlineessaywritingservice.review said that not all sites could be trusted. I agree with this statement. Anyone should check the modern websites they want to use.

      There should be three components in the work: the introduction, the argumentatively proved thesis, and the conclusion. There are no strict requirements for the arrangement of the components: the thesis can go to the conclusion, but the main task of the author is to ensure the logicality and integrity of the 99 papers reviews. Do not forget when using references to other people's work to mark it with appropriate references, and do not overload paragraphs - each should be marked one complete idea or argument. Introduction This is your calling card, a chance to interest the reader: with a word or phrase, a bold quote to hook and arouse curiosity, without deviating from the main thesis. Use a rough draft, because it is easier to find an interesting "hook" for the introduction while working on the essay, and then put it in the introduction. Remember the popular saying that a worthwhile thought always comes later!   Don't "pour water"; try to use words directly related to the topic of the essay. Mistakes: Blank. Applicants commit the sin of quoting popular people, telling primitive jokes, or using headlines and facts from the media that are annoying to the review committee. Such an introduction will not arouse positive emotions. Dry facts. The task of the introduction - to arouse interest: do not hesitate to be emotional, because the restrained presentation of the facts will leave the reader indifferent. Thesis When choosing a thesis statement, it should be firmly understood that it is not a scientifically proven fact or the result of conducted experiments and observations, but the main idea of the essay, which can be expressed in a few words. To be sure you have a thesis statement, imagine: the examiner put your written work aside and, without reading it, asks you what the main idea is. The two or three sentences you will need to answer are the thesis statement, a summary of the entire essay.   The topic offered in educational institutions often has different interpretations and approaches. You are not faced with the task of finding an unambiguous solution to the question posed - remember that they want to know your personal point of view, test your ability to think logically and be intellectually savvy. It is acceptable to quote from the works of any researcher or philosopher, explaining your understanding of their hypotheses and how they reflect the thesis of the paper. Prioritize unquestioned authorities: Aristotle, Einstein, Socrates, 20th century academics - do not use recent scholars, especially media darlings. Mistakes: To be or not to be? An overly philosophical approach to the problem will lead to a loss of firm ground and turn the essay into meaningless abstract reasoning. State a concrete, not too radical opinion. Argumentation There should be several reasons determining your position on the question posed: describe each of them in detail in a separate paragraph, trying to observe the semantic sequence. Do not deviate from the topic and do not forget that if the logic of the work requires it, the thesis can be placed in the last paragraph. Play on contrasts and contradictions, denote the inconsistency of the commonplace view of the subject with the scientific one, put an obstacle that is not easy to overcome. Give priority to students who not only know how to solve a problem, but also how to discern it. Mistakes: Questionable argument. Remember that the very notion of an argument implies that it is true - you should not cite someone else's speculation as evidence. Don't repeat it twice. The same idea, in other words, expressed in a different paragraph, will give the impression that there is nothing to say. Conclusion In conclusion, you should not repeat what has already been written - briefly finish your thought, write a thesis statement if you decide to leave it for last. The conclusion should be polished and elegantly summarize the previous reasoning. A good way is to share the experience of writing this particular essay: tell what proved to be the most difficult, what ideas you had to discard during your reasoning, and which ones were a revelation to you. Mistakes: New arguments. The conclusion is to summarize all of the above, this part does not imply the appearance of additional arguments: if there are still thoughts, add an additional paragraph. It will be superfluous to describe the structure and content of your work at the end - they speak for themselves. The conclusion is intended to give the reader a sense of completeness and completeness.   Related Resources: Differences between essays and other creative works Checklist for a good essay The difference between an essay and a term paper Structure of the essay

      And here is another site that I will add to the favorites list. I'm glad I found these satirical essay topics so quickly. Perhaps now I will not have to surf the web anymore.
