Best Lures For Heavy Stick-Ups, Snags And Fallen Timber?

Recommended Posts

Found a really hotspot back behind a local condo area.

It's only about 3-4 feet deep at best, but it's loaded with some big bass, but also "Full of snags, fallen timber and logs galore.

 

I lost 3 good spinner baits and a lot of patience last week over there! 

 

What lures would be best suited for this type of fishing? 

The bass are ultra aggressive & downright ornery! :respect-059:

 

Thanks

Reg

Brush jig or a T-rigged plastic bait, just make sure you bring the right line and rod to haul them out once you get a bite.

What size line would you recommend?

I normally use 20lb Fluoro when I pitching heavy wood cover and if it's really bad I'll go to 25lb fluoro or 65lb braid.

Ok...that's about what I thought. I met an idiot working in a Tackle Shop a few days ago trying to convince me to go back at them with 12 lb mono...says that he flips heavy cover with 12-14 lbs,,,,yeah, right! :crazy:

Wacky Senko with a 1/0 or 2/0 WEEDLESS hook.

 

Shaky head with a trick worm rigged weedless.

 

Unweighted Texas rig with a worm or fluke or creature bait.

 

Small jig with a plastic pig.

 

Be stealth. Have plastic enter water as quiet as possible.

 

Stay back from the bank. Wear dark clothes.

 

Walk at least 50' from the bank when moving from place to place.

 

Have a needle nose pliers with you and your fishing license.

 

Use your polarized sun glasses.

 

Check your line for knicks, abrasions and cuts and if you feel any cut it out and retie.

 

Send pics!

When you catch one, make sure that there is not a piece of fallen timber between you and the fish.  I have lost a lot of bass like that.

swim jig with a fast retrieve - frogs - buzz baits - these are personal choices - there are several options but you're going to need to keep their heads up and coming toward you rather quickly to be successful which requires stout tackle - but I love your situation.

Florida rigged (pegged weight) Brush-hog type soft or a buzz bait. The bass are aggressive the buzzer is good, hit on top, easier to land them. The Brush hog type baits displaces a lot of water slides though wood fairly good and will get bit.

I would go with straight braid under these conditions, you heed to get the bass out of the brush.

That's impossible...there's fallen timber between me and the water...not just the bass! lol :dazed-7:

I'd still throw a squarebill even though you'll lose some

x2 I love square bills around wood... You will lose some but they are great around wood cover. Just pay attention and don't pull when your snagged and you won't lose much
