New to lakes, looking for pointers

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I started fishing last season and have been surfcasting pretty much exclusively. I am now trying my hand at lakes for anything eatable, i.e Bass, trout, cat. Since I've started fishing my luck has been horrible to say the least. I just picked up some lures, everything else I've tried have never produced, which were chicken livers, chicken, several blood baits, dough baits, hotdogs, etc.

The lures I picked up are a rapala BXs-12 carp a brook trout in color, a rapala countdown also brook trout colored and a sierra brook trout colored spoon. The people I know that have been catching Bass at santa fe Dam have been using these. Are there any other lure recommendations you could point out? Sorry, I'm a complete bass newb.

 

Thanks in advance

Hello and Welcome to Bass Resource ~

I'll not offer lure recommendations because you may not know how, where, of when to use them.

Instead I'll tell you that this awesome site has a huge library of  excellent bass fishing articles, many geared to beginners like yourself, that would really be quite beneficial.

Being completely new to the game if you could find someone to fish with in area it would jump start your learning process. Don't be afraid to ask around the lake. You would be surprised how good of people most fisherman are.

Hello Riverbasser,

Thanks for the feedback. I normally would consider this however, recently I approached someone on a beach surfcasting somewhat near me and as soon as I said hello, he replied with "Why are you over here when you know fisherman don't like to be bothered?, I'm here to relax, please leave me alone" I was totally offended, but oh well. Either way, I might possibly try to do this again. It is possibly he was simply a SH.

 

I work about 3 minutes from Tri City park in Brea, I might start hitting this place after work to get a better understanding. Thanks again!!

 

Regards
