10+ Days Of Rain

Recommended Posts

Hello guys its me again. I have a situation where I live where it day has rained at least twice a day for the last ten days. As a matter of fact it just stopped a few minutes ago. We are getting at least an inch and a half of rain a day. My question is would you go try to attempt to catch some fish if so what would you throw. Im thinking dark small and noisy.

Finesse Carolina Rig. Such as a Mojo Rig. Check out Glenn's video on the mojo rig on youtube. Or you can just down scale your carolina rig weight to a 3/8 or 1/4 ounce. Weightless senko will also work excellent. 3/0 hook, 5" senko, little bit of JJ's Magic on the tail. Good to go. Hope this helps. 

Here's Glenn's video:

My thought was going to be dark, LARGE, and noisy...

 

-The dark color I think is the more important piece to the puzzle

 

I would try a texas rigged brush hog of some sort... Like a rage hog or a bps punch hog...

I also live in NC. Fayetteville in fact. I've been dealing with the rain too, but haven't had much since Wednesday last week. Have had pretty good luck on a carolina rig, even the senko.

Dark colors, like your June bugs, Black, that kindof thing. Give it a try man. What's the worst thing that could happen? Either your gonna catch something, or get soaked while doing it. haha.

That's true but any day on the water is better than most other thing I could be doing

I just came from a doctor visit and passed by one of my hotter spots to fish. Since we're hammered with rain just about everyday it could be a plus. The water levels are higher so the nasty weeds are submerged now. I'm thinking to use topwater lures, spinnerbaits, shallow cranks, swimbaits and plastic worms. I didn't have my polarized glasses with me so I'm not sure how submerged the weeds really are. But the overall situation I think I can fish it with success.

Health wise I have a few days till I can fish....

Most of the time by mid summer the weeds are over grown. It takes me a few trips use larger lures with big hooks to clear a path to use lures.

With all the rain were having its not killing the bugs that bite us I guess they have scuba gear? The bugs at really bad at night.

Yeah no kidding!  I was eaten alive last night even during the rain.

That's the thing about bass fishing. You never know what it's gonna be like. Right when you least expect it you catch the pigs. Such as fixing a backlash or simply daydreaming. Gotta love it.

I knew the OP was a Carolina resident when I saw title, man in Hickory past freaking week then news this morning said another system is moving in, then the new tropical so in so.  buzzbaits, black spook baits, Colorado blade spinnerbaits, blacks, junebugs, red bug. blue flick.  Jigs with big flapping trailers. big 10-12 in dark worms dragged on the bottem. I read this and was told this by other members before.

It's been raining pretty heavily here all week (TN) but here I'm pretty much always fishing stained to muddy waters. My advice, you don't have to go big necessarily,as far as color you can either go dark, or you go can go bright. Now is not the time for super realistic/natural bait colors. On the darker side, Black, Blue, Purple, and maybe Junebug. As far as bright, Chartreuse, Chartreuse, Chartreuse. If that isn't working Maybe try a big ole pink worm.

 

Also personally I would say enjoy the rainy days while they last, fish when you can. It got bright today and atleast where i was fishing they got a nasty case of lockjaw compared to the last week.

im going to probably try my favorite jig combo first a black and blue jig with a black and blue trailer i caught my first bass on it and we will give it a shot and then go to my rage anaconda if they dont want that i will try my spinner bait in dark and light colors and if nothing my small finesse worms around cover

putting the bait in the right spot is more important than anything. the fish will be very tight to cover if your water is chocolate milk. black/big/loud baits close to shore and in cover. if you can't see down 3 inches there can probably be fish sitting right on shore.

The heavy rain is bad because it washes up the bacteria from the bottom this is when I find the bass tight lipped most of the time. A light rain and when it pauses is much better for the fish to bite. If I see deer on the move with other wild animals I know the fish are going to bite during the overcast and the light rain. Even though I can't see the moon I'll bet this has something to do with the animals moving and the fish biting. I caught from shore 19 bass from one spot fan casting the whole area with a joesfly bass size 1/4oz

In firetiger apache in the low light. On the way home at another hot spot I caught three, smallies that we're 2 1/2 to 3lbers. I never seen smallies at this place too. So if we link the moon phased with a weather front

it just maybe great fishing

 

I have some new awesome small ponds to fish at but I can't post them here incase they know we're I'm fishing. I do have some that follow me. You know how others are they tell one guy then the whole area knows my spot.

I too live in NC. Iv been fishing right after the rains the past few days.. Its tough, but still possible to catch em. Iv been throwing weightless senkos in natural/dark colors and same colored jigs also. Almost every fish iv caught this way the past week or so have been right along the banks.

 Now is not the time for super realistic/natural bait colors. 

x2. but i think color is second to vibration. i'm on vacation in asheville and was killing it on chatterbaits three days ago (i had to deflect it off a rock to initiate a strike; they wouldn't touch it just chucking and winding in open water; slow rolling and bouncing off rocks/cover was the key).  

the water is so thick and muddy that i knew the heavy thumb of a metal blade was in order.  they loved the blue/black chatter.  after i lost that....they loved the white/chartreuse too.  the water cleared after the rain "slowed" down two days ago and they took a jig bouncing the same way.  that bite turned off yesterday and nada since. i did get a few bites slow dragging a weightless senko.  you still had to drag it into a rock but they wouldn't commit. today i'm going to try a 1/4oz tube.

Oh yea no doubt vibration is your best friend in these conditions. Use the vibration to lure them in and use your color selection to give them something they can more effectively lock on to.
