Finally back in Austin. Moved to Colorado back in December and haven't bass fished since then. Saw her on a bed under some branches. Weighed just above 6. Great ...more fish to start out the spawn. @Denton_11
Day two: Cut it into two. Sanded most of it down to where I want it. Need to finish sanding the bottom of the back piece. Also cut out a slit for the tail. Hoping ...more to weight it and tune it in the next couple of days. I'll make sure to keep you guys updated.
@atxflyfishing what do you mean? @SD_9 yessir, BIG ones! They have pulled a lot of them out now but there were dozens in the past, they washed over the spillway ...more in the floods of '98 and 2000, Google
It was pretty good, ended up going to Lazy l and l. Caught a couple nice fish. Started out with some streamers and couldn't get anything so put on nymphs and ...more started hooking up with some decent fish.
I don't use swimbaits simply because I don't have the money to spend on them but they are the best baits for targeting the specific class of giant fish. ...more May not get the number of votes but the quality
Again all the gear I take on the water totals $300 including kayak and I have caught 2 bass over 11 pounds in under a year. As @wyldechylde77 said for the most part ...more bass are dumb don't waste your $$
Anyway, as I have said I don't like the ploys and will never be influenced by anyone. Remenber guys, most lures are made to lure the fishermen, not the fish. ...more Anyway, you all enjoy them, I prefer not.
..well, I'n not a young man. I've been fishing since well before most of you were even a thought. I'm not out to prove anything, just to enjoy myself ...more and help teach others so our sport doesn't die...
@atxflyfishing I've caught my share of em over the years. And also, remember that LMB are not the Kings around NY and unlike California (for example) we don't ...more have tons of big Largies. Remember as..
..largemouth bass are so popular? Because they are easy to catch. You can catch a 10+ lb LMB on a hot dog of you move it right. Again, it's your choice and you ...more can do whatever you want. But I beg..
These are marketed as these "high grade" BLAH blah, when in all reality you can catch the same fish on other methods. LM Bass are NOT smart fish. They ...more are eating machines. Here's a secret: know why..
...presentation, not the looks. Fish will see mostly silouettes (sp?), feel vibration and pulses, etc. They don't care if a lure costs $500 or $.50. If it gives ...more off the proper action, you'll get them.
I'm not against them, per sé, as I do feel do each his own and anyone can do what the want. What I am against is the marketing ploy for them that people ...more fall for. I cannot stress enough..it's about...
I say save the money on the swim baits and take a trip swap sea fishing. I'm planning a 12 hour trip off shore of south padre island fishing for tuna that cost ...more 250. I rather catch ten 25 pound tuna
You clearly haven't ever fished a large swimbait, @TylersReelFishing. So don't comment. I mainly throw swimbaits, I enjoy realistic the approach and the ...more ginormous hits I get when fishing swimbaits.
