6-25-19 hard to find them

Recommended Posts

got back out last night and took leonard.¬† got to get all my guide duties in for all my older than me buddiesūüėĄ.¬† went the lower end again.¬† we found areas with plenty of bait, but not much success in catching anything.¬† had 5 keeps at midnight.¬† all of our stops had been areas catching all the wind.¬† i decided to make one more stop on the way in, but it was on the other side of the lake out of the wind and BAM¬† we were in business.¬† put nine keepers in the boat in a blink.¬† bites were close to 25 ft.¬† caught most of them on the 3/4 GrassJig.

goes to show that wind is not always your friend.  i do not know why, but there are many times on the lower end that you have to hunt areas that have wind protection to find catchable bass.  goes to show that you just have to keep trying different areas and terrains until you find a patch.  a kind of sorry night turned to a good one in about 15 minutes.

Hey stay off that point leading into my cove haha

i know that.  the water bunny sat and watched us for about 40 minutes the other night to see if we would turn our lights off. finally gave up and went in to the bat cave.  that was about the only bite we had there last night.  plenty of bait, but no fishies.

Those fish are smart. Somebody stops and fishes that point I swear every hour. 

they are not too smart when they come to lay down to rest.  when they are off shore feeding in the shad, they are active then.  most of the bass that anyone catches, are inactive bass, that have laid down somewhere to rest.  when a number of them have moved into an area to rest, it provides numerous targets to try to get to reflexively strike at our offering.  there are exceptions and we stumble upon an active school, and then it does not make much difference what you throw at them, you will get bit.  example of having to be exact with presentation is the other night when i took gary harlan.  we were both throwing the same 3/4 GrassJig and trailer.  i did all the catching because i had the correct presentation to make them hit.  he was working his jig far differently than i was and could not figure out why he was not getting a bite.  when i finally got him to work the jig as i was doing, he immediately caught one.  it is up to the fisherman to figure out the key to trigger bites, if you are among them.

I am doing something along that line now. I know some spots that 25 ft deep that bass will rise to schools  shad  about ten ft down. My current go to spot is on a  small deep flat that drops  steeply to the too the old channel bank down over 5o ft.  You got to be there at the right time of day and year to find them there..  That biter does  not last very long. I been down there the last down there 2 evenings in a row. Got bass  both times but in a short bite. First evening only 2 at  3 and 5 lbs. last evening 4 from 2 rot 4 lbs. casting  a Big Bite Kriet worm out and just letting bit sink.I have dropped a shot on them when they are laying on the bottom using that magnum Bass Pro trick worm with a little success. Might be  even better if it was not just off a good sized navigation channel. Sometimes its all I can do to hold on to my seat much less fidget with my drop shot
