  4. Caught this one of 5 on a slow bite ...changed to the yum dinger as a trailer but bit off an inch to make it shorter... swims like a paddle tail proved effective... ...more I kept this one and filleted it out and gave it to a little boy that looked like he was in need and knowing his rig wasn’t going to be effective here

    18 in. Largemouth Bass with a chatter bait with yum dinger trailer

  6. Details: Largemouth Bass with a lip locked bass

    Robert Coleman,( or anyone’s)any ideas when the bass get lip locked? Water temp is pretty high on our lake my guess high 70’s tried all times of days (yes I have ...more a job LOL) maybe ( I hate to say it)live bait !

    1. Mike Ellertson 0
      I will have to try the night spinnerbait and topwater baits! I am on call all weekend so I fish a lot waiting for calls. Thanks Morris
    2. Capt Morris Campbell 0
      Ok that changes a lot. Definitely try early and late topwater and or night. Spinner bait both day and black spinner bait at night
    3. Capt Morris Campbell 0
      Frog over matted vegetation and heavy weeds ,pads. Topwater early and late.
    4. Mike Ellertson 0
      Thanks Morris , I Tried the craw with a punch weight this afternoon .. we fish from shore which makes it even tougher to really fish this lake but we do pretty ...more well usually
    5. Capt Morris Campbell 0
      Crank bait
    6. Capt Morris Campbell 0
      How about a flippin jig and craw. Or a punch weight and craw and fish it vertical in the heavy weeds or matted vegetation. Also offshore weeds or structures Carolina ...more rig or crank air
    7. Mike Ellertson 0
      Tried wacky rigs (very effective on this lake) I will have to try the drop shot and night fishing...... thanks Chris!
    8. Christopher Pereira 0
      Not knowing anything about the lake I'd say your best three options for summer fishing bass right now is 1. mid day when sunny skipping a weightless wacky rigged ...more senko to the backs of under docks. 2. fishing at night with top water. 3. fishing mid day deep drop offs with a drop shot or ned rig.
