Walk A Mile In My Tackle !

Recommended Posts

Most anglers pride themselves on their way of fishing to be "obsolete" and refuse diversity.

This forum is to share tackle and fishing techniques with said tackle, with other anglers so they can see for themselves just how well your techniques work!

Is there a question or a point in there?  I don't understand the post.

I'll start off , with a T-Rigged Zoom Magnum (green pumpkin pref.) one of my favorite lures would have to be a Texas rigged zoom magnum, green pumpkin seems to produce the most fish. What I do is cast into either open water or in brush,trees,drops, and/or banks, watch your line as it drops at a steady rate(be sure to let it drop with a slack line). Half of the time you'll get a strike in the initial drop. If not , simply tap your rod up lifting the plastic worm up about a foot to drop slowly again. after your worm touches the bottom, reel up some slack and repeat.

Although using Texas rig with a weight is easy to cover water and catch a lot of bass, it's still not my favorite. If weather cooperates, fish it weightless! Yes, it is more difficult to feel your worms movement, but you'll get used to it. Almost every cast without a weight ill get a strike on initial drop.

BIG ONES TOO! GLuck and I hope you try it out!

It's just an explanation of the forum. Above I have an example of a reply.

Well if your referring to best methods for each person, mine would be a T Rigged lizard. If I take a 6" Zoom Watermelon red lizard and rig it with a 5/0 EWG and a 1/16 oz weight, I can fish just about any way. Swim it, skip it, bottom it, flip it, pitch it, hop it, etc.

And by the wording of the Op's posts.............maybe the medicine and/or liquor  cabinet should be avoided as well.

Well this is also a good way for novice anglers to learn a lot of techniques to try out and help themselves to some fish in their own area, doesn't hurt to teach!

By forum, I'm pretty sure he means this specific thread he started...

All of these threads put together are a forum. What we're posting in right now, is a thread within a forum or message board.

I am pretty new to fishing and appreciate the post, as well roadwarrior's link which I had not seen.  I have had much success using an Aaron Martens Shakey Fish jig paired with a Zoom white fluke or Gulp fluke.  I've nailed some big fish this winter fishing this in deep water and around a dock.  Have also caught fish swimming it horizontally along shorelines.

 

For worms, I have just started using Senkos and have not caught anything.  My go-to worm over the summer was from a company called Touchdown and it is essentially a worm with two hooks with a Carolina rig.  Not sure if it is a purist set up, but they caught fish for me all summer.

 

For Senkos (and worms with a Texas rig) do people fish them in open water (depths of 15-30 ft), or just near the banks and observable structure?  I haven't caught anything with a worm in open water, yet the way people talk on here and what I see on the fishing shows, it looks like that is what people are doing.  Thanks!

I don't find this to be true at all.  At least not on this site.  Every single thread is generally an outlet to share what works.

Generally, you need structure or cover to fish a worm or any other soft plastics on the bottom.

try out the green pumpkin zoom magnums with no weight, youll outfish anyone! slow fishing = big bass , eaning slow falls = big bass too! check out some bass in my gallery , almost all are from weightless green pumpkin zoom magnum trick worms :)

Ironically this is my favorite as well. What hook are you throwing for weightless? My only differance is pumpkin seed with the fat part of the tail dipped in chartreus spike it.

nice addition with chartreus dip, i use a size 2/0 or 3/0 Gamakatsu worm hook, red  offset seems to not work so well when its weightless, but i prefer them when weighted. may just be coincidence though.

I love senkos! when the conditioning is right... http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.197818143562242.52392.100000021730528&type=3#!/photo.php?v=544091352268251&set=vb.100000021730528&type=2&theater

 

my first go to is a 10" ribbontail on a 1/8 oz tungsten screw in bullet for worms.

texas rigged senko in the summer works great,  make sure to poke the hook out the senko the tuck the tip back in. its a big bait to set a  hook through

You can know all the secret baits, and rigging tricks, but that won't help if you can't find active fish.  Find the bass first, then figure out what bait will work best in those conditions.  Work from the top down to problem solve and identify any patterns.

Using a spinnerbaits or crank bait is a great way to cover area to find the bass, or be aware of top water hits by the shoreline, drop a t rig right on top and hold on!

You generally either need a structure change (channel swing, drop off, etc), some sort of cover, or both to fish worms to their potential.  However, one of the exceptions is mid lake humps.  Though a hump is definately a structure change, some are so wide spread and vary so little in elevation that it can be hard to distinguish them from surrounding structure and they can appear to be a flat thats only a foot or so above the surrounding area.  During summer time and winter time the bass will sometimes load up on these "humps".  Though there is absolutely zero cover in the area, a large worm dragged across the hump and through these schools can be VERY rewarding with big fish and lots of them.

 

However, when the fish are stacked up on humps, dont think that a worm is the only tool to get them.  A deep diving crank, heavy spinnerbait slow rolled, carolina rigged fluke, etc can be just as good.

Alright I'll bite. :) my favorite method for fishing craws is to put a netbait paca craw on a megastrike shake-e2 pro serIes 1/2oz shaky head jig. Rig the the craw on it, then here is my secret trick- I cut a tiny bit off of the hollow head, and stuff a piece of alkaseltzer inside. It gives off a few bubbles a second. Usually one tablet broken into 6 pieces will last about 5 minutes for each piece. The fish can't stand the claws up and the bubbling "mouth". They eat it up. I typically will throw this on rocky dropoffs where most people would throw a jig. You can also use the alkaseltzer trick for any bait with a hollow cavity. I also flip using this on a texas rig and you could use it for punching matted grass with a heavy bullet weight. It also works on a carolina rig because the bubbles being made inside the bait float it. Also try this with the damiki air craw- put the alkaseltzer in the hollow claws.
