A little weed line help?

Recommended Posts

mrpike1973

How do you guys go about fishing on top or close to weedlines for bass when the weeds are really messy? I usually try spinnerbaits over the top or drop shotting next to them. New to me this year is trying tube jigs these work OK but seem to get full of weeds quickly I'm guessing I could texas rig them also. I do good in sparse or somewhat weedy but struggle when the weeds are a absolute blanket and go right to the top of the water I know the fish are in there. Just looking for advice on better techniques to help me learn more of the puzzle. Thanks

Weedless jigs can be very effective, teamed with a plastic of some kind, there are lots of good ones out there. You have to pick your spots to drop them in, but you really don't need much room.

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
