1. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Strike King Red Eye Shad - Orange Belly Craw

    So there's finally been a break in the cold weather here and I was able to get out to a pond yesterday. I'd never fished it before and honestly I didn't ...more have high hopes for the place. It was very slow at first with no bites and out of nowhere I had a fish on. Finally after such a long winter, I got my first fish of 2015 and it weighed in at 4lbs! Awesome way to kick off the season

      yah it was pretty tough
    3. MDBassmaster 0
      @thebassmaster13 Man that sucks. The fishing must have been tough on Saturday because usually first place is a 5+ pounder
    4. thebassmaster13 0
      yah I was like 0.10 pounds away from 3rd place with a 2.31 pounder
    5. MDBassmaster 0
      @thebassmaster13 I know! I couldn't make it to the tournament. I was so bummed. My buddy said that first place was around 2 1/2 pounds
    6. thebassmaster13 0

    8. MDBassmaster 0

  5. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Rapala DT10 Pearl Grey Shiner

    Got to the lake at about 3:00 PM but the bite was really slow until the evening. I caught this nice little 2 pounder at 7:20 PM, while fishing the mouth of a cove, ...more using the DT10 with a medium retrieve.

  6. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Live Bluegill

    Tried a new pond with @Fishin_king last Wednesday and caught this healthy 3 pound largemouth. I threw every lure I could think of with no bites so I decided to use ...more bluegill. I hooked it through the back with a wacky hook and added a bobber. The bobber went straight under in 3 fow and I set the hook hard. I usually don't use live bait so this catch was a nice surprise for me.

    1. MDBassmaster 0
      Yeah exactly! Thanks @Reel_Smooth

  10. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Frogs

    I'm looking to buy a rod and reel for frog fishing and need suggestions! What kind of setups do you all use for froggin?

    1. TheBoog 0
      Yea man sounds like a winner
    2. MDBassmaster 0
      @TheBoog Thanks for all the advice! I'm definitely not constantly hooking 5 pounders so I think a medium heavy would work fine for my purposes. Also I was thinking ...more a 7'6", a 7.1:1, and 50 pound braid
    3. TheBoog 0
      Oh obviously braid 30-65 depending on weeds don't bs w/ em
    4. TheBoog 0
      So my perfect set up would b a stout MH to H with a moderate fast tip 6'10" cuz ima bank fisher n 7.6:1 real.. Sorry bout being long winded but this is ...more my fav way to fish
    5. TheBoog 0
      4. The reel is important as well u want a pretty fast real 7.0:1 to 8.0:1 u still want to give the fish a sec b4 setting his a$$ straight
    6. TheBoog 0
      To walk with the rod tip up which is difficult for me
    7. TheBoog 0
      3. The length of the rod is most important to me.. The longer the more leverage it'll get the fish's head up. However if u fish from a bank a long rod will ...more make it difficult to walk unless u learn
    8. TheBoog 0
      It will give the fish a second more to take the bait b4 the rod loads up
    9. TheBoog 0
      2. The action of the rod(tip) gives u the ability to walk anything more than a fast action will make walkin more difficult, however a slower action will give u more ...more leeway if u set the hook prematurly
    10. TheBoog 0
      1. The power of the rod is not that important unless ur consistently hookin 5#ers in the heaviest slop.. The heavier the rod the more ur casting distance declines ...more n u must throw larger heavier baits
    11. TheBoog 0
      Yo bruh just lookin at MD blerts n I saw this.. Last ur I literally only fished frogs from the heaviest pad mats to open water so here's what I learned..

      I use a Lew's Tournament MG 6.3:1 gear ratio and a MH Falcon HD and 50 lb braid I like a 6.3:1 reel because you can get the torque you need but also get sone ...more speed at the same time.
    14. gr82bstr8 0
      @DarkHelmet57 you need at least a 7' heavy rod & braided line. I use 30lb PowerPro Slick on mine. As far as a reel, I've read & been told to use ...more something with a high gear ratio like 7.0:1 or higher.
    15. topwater_beast Woop 0
      i use a 7'mh duckett rod
    16. william spencer 0
      I like to use the Abu Garcia Veritas. It also can be bought in medium-heavy but I have the heavy. Very light for its size and durable

    18. MDBassmaster 0
      Ok thanks @huntingandfishing
    19. huntingandfishing 0
      Yeah you need a heavy rod. It doesn't make it harder just have a fast taper rod so you can get that soft tip and make it walk better
    20. MDBassmaster 0
      Thanks @williamd1999 @bmlum @lukebent254 @huntingandfishing I fish heavy pads and I wanted to know if a heavy action rod is necessary because I heard that it makes ...more it harder to walk a frog
    21. crookcody19 0
      How much is the black max? @lukebent254
    22. huntingandfishing 0
      I wouldn't use a black max for frogging. @lukebent254 Use a heavy or xtra heavy and braid like @williamd1999 said

      Help you secure a solid and strong hook set at the top of the mouth where it's wanted.
    26. William William 0
      Heavy rods with heavy braid is the key. Need a nice long stiff rod to get the leverage and raw power you need for pulling bass out of those lily pads, grass mats, ...more etc. braid has low stretch and will..
