1. Details: Largemouth Bass

    Now that the temperature is cooling, the bass are starting to be more active and are moving up shallower looking for shad on points and steep banks. Early this morning ...more the fog was thick on the water and the bait was nervous so I went with a buzzbait and it payed of with 7 more like this one after the sun came up I switched to a crankbait and they hit that almost as well as the buzzbait.

    12. ethan_aaron12 0
      Ok ya I usually fish east matty and our biggest problem has been just way to much fresh water coming from the creaks and rivers so we have just been struggling to ...more find water that will even hold trout.
    13. wind yes but it being the weekend also. Barometric pressure is low cause of the storm. so I think that has a lot to do with it.
    14. ethan_aaron12 0
      Thanks @benaguide63 and happy b day to you I saw your post from this morning and saw that you struggled to catch them today was it just because of the wind?

I gave him som of our cut bait so that he would stay around and when he was eating the cut bait ...more I stuck one on a hook an tossed it out in front of him and he ate it 10 ft from the boat.

  7. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Rattle trap: blue chrome

    Well the spawn is just about over in Texas but a lot of the big fish are back up in the shallows hunting bluegill and crappie effective baits right now are swimbaits, ...more topwater frog, jigs and topwater slush baits don't be sacred to throw the bait in water less than a foot foyer that is where the biggest bass lurk.

    Hey skouters May and June are the best months in the year to fish a topwater so get out on the water early, bring your topwaters and go get you some trout reds and ...more perhaps even some flounder

      And do not be afraid to throw it all day long, you will not catch as many fish as you would on a soft plastic but the topwater catches quality fish
