Mid July Bass Fishing

Recommended Posts

I was able to get out on the local lake and nearby pond the other day. Fishing was decent, a little slow at first but it picked up. I mainly caught my fish on Chatterbaits and Yum Dingers!

Nice video. Great watching on a Friday night before I head out in the am. Way to go.

Nice production. Your hookset on those chatterbait bites seems so gentle. It's surprising to me how well those fish were hooked, considering the reputation of zman chatterbait hooks. Unless you have one of the newer models

Ever try Bass Lake just west of there? It's a tougher bite than West Branch but I've pulled some big fish out of there.

Beardown 34- I may have a newer model of the Chatterbaits but I'm not 100% sure. I've never really had problems with hook sets on Chatterbaits to be honest. They have always served me well.

slonezp- I noticed bass lake on the map but I have not fished it yet. I'll have to try it out sometime soon. Maybe make my next video there!

Yeah you certainly look very proficient with a chatterbait on your line!

The chatterbait bite was on fire in early spring but i was getting tired of fish coming off with the original chatterbaits. I ended up buying some shakey blades and attached them to horizontal line tie jigs of my own choosing (mostly n*t*ch) and the hookups are much better. Learned my lesson not to skimp on the O rings!

You shouldn't set into a chatter or spinner bait. The rod and pace of your reel sets for you. The only thing you're going to do it tear the area they are hooked in if you set back on them and that's not good.

I agree with you mosster, they do indeed hook themselves

I must need stickier hooks! I fish my chatterbaits with a MH but I really slow roll it. I'm not confident that the pace of that reel/retrieve will get the fish to hook itself.
