  4. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Popping cork

    Can you use a popping cork to catch largemouth bass?

    1. tacticalscissors 0
      It'd be a good idea to stick a treble hook to the popping cork because the bass will probably hit the cork more than the bait under it

      If that gives you a little idea you probably would want the top shot like @Jungleexplorer said to be lighter than the braid and at least 100 yards for a shock absorber ...more and aberration resistance
    4. kp_fisher 0
      I would go 600 yards of 130lb jerry brown hollow core and you will still have room for ~130 yards of 100lb mono The reel will fit 1200 yards of 130lb braid ...more or 1450 yards of 100lb or 1700 of 80lb

      400-500 yds of 80-100 lb braid, fill the rest with 80 lb mono. 10+ foot rash leader and 6' of steel.

      What's the best bait to use? @jurssica
    4. jurssica 0
      You can go three miles out to the wells and catch bull red, red snapper, kingfish etc.

      Okay, thanks

      Not sure, I only fish piers on the surf. Look up Robert Feild on YouTube and look at his videos. You will learn a lot!
    7. only_in_Texas 0
      And do I need to anchor, or drift fish it
    8. only_in_Texas 0
      How far offshore? @ThatOneFisher
    9. ThatOneFisher 0
      Try for bull reds with cut or whole mullet on a bottom rig.
