Anybody's have any tips for me on lippless crank baits and What size /color /sound/action bait selection I should have in my box it's getting to be that ...more time of year and I have had the worst luck with them and I see some of you guys are catching hogs on them
Lol 8days a week! Lol I fish all shimanos my 7.2.1 Curado I gets 28" of line per reel turn with 12 pound floro I've had my other curado for 6 years and ...more is still going strong and I fish just a 7ft falcon crank rod I caught a 6lber the other day and I have to say I love my shimanos with x ship that drag kicked it's but on 10lb test
For working the bait I make a long cast. When I engage the reel I just reel at a steady retrieve every so often give the bait an upward pull...kinda like yoyoing ...more the bait just not quite as extreme. The only time I ever really rip the bait is when I hit grass. I'll pop him pretty hard then to clear the hooks. For example. This morning, I was throwing parallel to the riprap, I was reeling the bait as fast as I had to as to not get hung. I was just ticking the rocks, then I would give it that little upward pull, and bam they would smack it. 5 back to back cast spotted bass this morning on a lipless crankbait. I caught 13 total on the lipless then swapped over to a fluke. Ended the day at 31 spotted bass. 1 largemouth
My personal preference is a Lew's tournament pro (my opinion best reel on the market) it used to come in a 7.1:1 ratio....but now you can get it in a 6.8:1 or ...more 7.5:1. As a guide I actually tend to use the Lew's speed spool LFS simply due to them being cheaper, but they tend to last me a year to a year in a half. Mind you I fish 8 days a week. Yes I said 8. The tournament pro last me 3-4 years.
they're not going to produce that great on calm sunny days, unless you have grass that the fish are holding in. now it can be sunny, but add some wind, and ...more now get on wind blown points and you can have a field day. first thing in the morning when it's low light, great time for them also. I really like when my lake's are generating power. then that current positions the fish and a lipless bait can be awesome. my choice is luckycraft lv 500. it's 3/4 oz i use a duckett ghost 7'6 medium heavy CRANKING or a duckett 7'11" medium heavy CRANKING. I like a long rod because with that heavy bait you tend to make long cast and you need that long rod to pick up line when a fish hits way out
Lucky craft makes a great lipless bIt. The LVR I believe. Rattle trap is always a good choice. Stay away from Cordell they seem to crake a lot. Color for spring ...more is craw or red. Doesn't matter water color. When temp is above 50 degrees throw red.
Sasha try the original Cordell spot in chrome blue or black back. Rattletrap wins big money in the bass tournaments here in Florida. If you are in hydrilla or milfoil ...more areas they are deadly .eel grass too
When you go to buy them, check out the stock hooks they come with. I hate paying 7$ bucks for a bait that requires gamakatsu or mustad trebles right out of the package. ...more A few of the industry leading manufacturers are guilty of this. Sound is good imo. With the rainy spring season, bass tend to rely on their other senses and less on sight. The tight wobble and ticking of the bb's will draw them from a farther distance.
thanks john yea i was looking in to the red eye shad cause it flutters on the fallhave you tryd the two tap or silent ? all i have now are a rapala clakin rap a ...more riping rap and 2 bill lewis 1/4 dose line size matter alot?ive just been throwing them on my crankbait rod on 12pound
Best traps I've used are the red eye shad from strike king but they ain't cheap. Use a smaller size if throwing from shore. Red kicks butt in Texas. But ...more good to have chrome/blue, Chartreuse too. What I like about traps is that you create your reaction strike by just retrieving it. Learn about rattle trap cadence and you can cause a reaction strike in open water without having to bang it into cover like a Spinnerbait. The rattle it has mixed with a certain cadence makes it irresistible to bass.
The best way to learn to bass fish is to go out and do it. Every time you catch a fish pay attention to the where the fish was temp of the water cover near by and ...more the water color. The more you fish the more information you will have for your own. It is hard to tell someone how to fish if you don't know a lot of what is going on. That is why the best way is to go and find them. Good luck and post some pics of what you catch so we can see you learn and grow on the sport of fishing!
If I had to build a beginners tackle box it would consist of 2 small white Spinnerbaits, 2 small Chartreuse / white Spinnerbaits, stick bait and curl tailed worms ...more in darker colors, 2/0 offset worm hooks (non extra gap), assortment of bullet weights, 2 Chartreuse / white buzzbaits, hollow body frog, swivels and 2 Chartreuse squarebill crankbait that should get you started
John Fitch & Tyler Curry both offer great info here. To add to them, when fishing from the bank, be sure to step lightly and not to walk right at the water's ...more edge, you will spook a lot of fish. I also prefer yum dinger over senkos due to price as well as yum has better colors in my opinion. Never pass up any irregularities. such as a random clump of grass or a stick up, or a transition where say a rocky bank changes to red clay. fish will hold on these transitions. For more in depth knowledge feel free to message me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If your looking for one bait that will help you catch fish almost anytime a year, then try a 4 inch wacky rigged Senko. I like yum dingers in Mardi Gras color. They're ...more cheap and work great. Just get a 1/0 hook and hook the worm right in the middle. You can fish this in ponds, lakes, river or streams. You can also fish it in wood, grass, rocks or anything else you might be fishing.
Base info: If you have no experience and bank fishing on ponds I would start small using small lures where it will be easier to catch smaller more aggressive bass. ...more That will build your confidence and you will learn from each catch. And fish structure, bass like to ambush their prey. And just because you use smaller lures does not mean you won't catch big bass. Once you learn the basics than you can move up to bigger game.
