Bass fishing on Horseshoe?

Recommended Posts


I have only fished for catfish on the chain I would like to try for bass. I would assume to use bright colors spinner baits, cranks, I wouldn't think it would do well for wacky worms etc. try the weed edges first? I don't want your spots just some ideas of how to get them Thanks.

This old ass information but here goes:

The “system” was one of my all time favorites for bass fishing years ago.  I always did best getting right up in the weeds with weightless plastics (Culprit Jerk Worm to age myself) or doodling the pockets with jig worms.  Caught enough cats doing that too.  I could never find a good outside weed line bite for bass.


My favorite though was flipping shoreline cover like wood and docks in the river sections with a black and chartreuse jig and trailer.  The one trick that worked best for me was to use a jig already rigged with a willow leaf spinner blade or one I’d rig myself.  The bigger fish loved it that way.


I usually had 15 lbs plus bags on tourney day with a 5lb kicker.


I can’t imagine the chain is so much different now that similar baits and techniques wouldn’t work just as well.

I always did well in the river sections working shoreline structure with almost anything.
