Hard Strikes

Recommended Posts

Probably topwaters for me too.  My spinnerbaits also get hit pretty hard a lot of the time.

JIg. This particular fish was by far the hardest strike I've ever had.

I had about a 6lbs Largemouth absolutely blow up a buzzbait last year, by far the hardest, loudest strike I've ever heard, I'll never forget the sound as long as I live. :thumbsup3:

T-rigs and jigs.  Around here the smaller ones tend to try and kill it when they hit the bait.  The big ones are more easy going.

Bouncing a jig on a rock river bottom.....BOOM goes the smallie.  The fight was great too, 15" of fury.

The hardest hit I ever had was from a 5lb 1oz river smallmouth that absolutely crushed a 1/2oz spinnerbait I was burning about 3" or so below the surface that just caused a small wake. I probably had the bait a quarter of the way in when all I saw was a huge swirl and my spinnerbait disappeared and then the rod was very close to being ripped from my hands, literally, I actually felt the rod slip and then my grip tightened and I reared back and set the hook, it seemed like it all happened in slow motion.

​There are a few of us retired guys who fish the same places. In one spot we all lost lures to something that just hits so violent it snaps the line before I can set the hook. I always lose the rapala #7 in blue. I'm not sure how many lures I lost but it's many between us. I'm sure this fish has a box full of them. The strike seems to be full steam ahead from the side when it hits, it's different. I been wondering if it's an otter?

Swim Jig for sure.  Bass seem to crush it with a vengeance!!

Yeah, gonna have to go spinnerbait here. I've had some hard hits from the smallies on chatterbaits this year but the hardest strike I've ever had was from a pike smashing into a Terminator spinner bait in white. Like a shot to the arm.

I have never had strikes to compare to river tigerfish hitting a spoon. Its like hooking into a guided missile with short range fuel tanks. On the bass side I have had some big hits from smallies on spinnerbaits that still brings a smile to my face when I remember.

When I get a particularly hard strike, it signals to me that there are other fish in the area and this one was trying to get to my bait first. I always  throw back to the same spot after I land the first fish and usually get more bites.

Topwaters. Spook type baits, frogs, jitter bugs

x2...also my biggest hit to date was on a spinnerbait..it was a pike at least 36" until my Trilene "Vanish" leader did it's professional act and lost this fish about 10ft out.
