Numbers Of Fish

Recommended Posts

What is the best bait for numbers of fish? I couldn't care less about size, but I want numbers. I fish nothing but wood so I can't use open/ exposed hooks as they will get snagged. What is the best bait for my situation?

Thanks so much!

If you're trying to avoid getting snagged, you're going to have to go with a Texas rig or topwater.

Fishing from bank or boat?  Are you truly limited to timber, or is that your comfort zone?  Don't completely rule out trebles.  Depending on the situation, you may find you can satisfactorily work squarebills through wood.  May take some time to get confidence to do so, but it could be worth it.  Sounds like weightless or lightly weighted plastics is where you need to be.  Finesse-y presentations; mojo weights, small swim jigs, etc.

A Texas rigged 6 inch Jelly worm has to be one of the top producers maybe the top producing worm in history .

This.  Put a gun to my head and tell me I need to catch fish, no matter the size... Without thinking, I am grabbing a baby brush hog. A great lure, and pretty cheap.

 

Also, it may be user error, or not giving it a fair chance, but I bought a bag of regular brush hogs and did not like them at all.  The larger size did not have the action, specifically the tail wiggle, that I love with the smaller size ones.

I'm guessing you are using the same size weight for the big ones. Step your weight size up and watch them come to life. I like using the big ones down in deeper water. Especially deep, submerged brush.

Any time I take someone with me that's new to fishing and want to make sure they catch fish. I set them up with a weightless Tx rigged white zoom fluke or weightless Tx rigged 4" green pumpkin senko. It's never failed me yet.

Ahh thank you. I like that idea.  Usually I only use them in shallow situations, it would be nice to toss the bigger ones when I'm out deep.  I will definitely give that a go next time I am on the water... in a couple months...

This one... but I'm biased because it has become my go-to bait when others aren't working. I'm sure other lures would produce well too if only I fished them with the same amount of confidence that I have in the Senko.

A thousand times, THIS.  I tried to use other baits, but the weightless Senko kept catching fish when other baits wouldn't.

I do similar. If I am taking someone fishing I really really want them to catch some fish to have fun so 90% of the time I will give them a 4" Green Pumpkin Senko rigged weightless. 

 

A 1/4 oz Chartresuse White tandem spinnerbait would be good for numbers too

If you know how to use a jig a 1/4-1/2 oz jig-n-pig is about as good as it gets around wood... if not a weightless senko is an easy way to put fish in the boat...
