Whipper Plipper

When one fish hits, but none others do.

Recommended Posts

I was fishing in my pond with a Whopper Plopper yesterday, and one fish hit it, but I fished all the way around the pond, and nothing even pecked it.?. Any reasons?

Don't make fun of me, but the only places SIMILAR to a river that I have been 2 is the village Creek, and pine island bayou. I am only 10. I bass fish almost every day, and I have a cabin at lake Sam Rayburn. That's where I caught my 3.13 on phantom shad Whopper plopper. Now I use a rat ta tat tat Whopper plopper

Your chasing the "ghost bite". You get a bite on lure A and you think that's what they're going to be biting. Not always true. Its extremely frustrating and time consuming. I've had days when I get a bite on just about everything- spinners, walkers, worms, etc... and yet I can't duplicate a single bite. I'll just say "some days suck".

Hey tracker22, did you also know color matters? And no, I'm not trying to be cruddy. I'm just askin. We were at lake Sam Rayburn or Rayburn as I call it, and we were fishing the bank, and I was using rat ta tat Whopper plopper and got no bites, but my dad was using phantom shad Whopper plopper, and he MISSED 2 fish.

yeah, your probably right, I should try more colors. I tend to stay with light colors on bright days and dark colors on dark days. But some days you just gotta try something different. I try to use my "vast knowledge" of conditions but it doesn't always work?.

I believe that probably had more to do with timing , location of the cast, and retrieval more so than color...

 

Have you ever had a color of senkos that didn't catch fish ?? 

 

Me either...

Oh,and if y'all were wonderin why the fish always get hooked on the Whopper plopper's front treble hook, it's cause the fish are comin up from straight under usually.

So he finished his casts, then you cast to his spots. When I fish behind someone, I usually don't choose the same bait as someone else. All else being equal, if someone picks a spot apart, they are getting the most active fish, leaving you to clean up. That's not to say that you still can't catch fish, but if someone is picking an area apart with a 1/2 oz jig, I'd be throwing a finesse jig, senko, or something a bit different behind them, possible enticing the more finicky bass that the guy up front didn't catch.

For a 10yr old you seem to be pretty knowledgeable about how a bass hits a crank,  different manufacturer's and thier products, difference between rivers, creeks and bayous...

Sometimes the basics elude us, I know they do me...

 

Just remember going forward... Thats why they call it fishin!

I never retrieve the same way more then three times, always try to be different in your retrieves so the bass don't get use to the same presentation. And if they still don't bite try switching up the color and see if you can tell what the bass are feeding on if possible and match that. Or even go out and try a new bait. You can't always stick with what you think will work best, sometimes I'll go through my whole tackle. Don't be afraid to switch up you'll be surprised

As a matter of fact, I have. To be exact, I have thrown senkos before and I have never even so much as got a nibble. Black and blue, solid black, green and white swirl; so far all my senkos do it take up space in my soft plastics pouch. Here there I still throw one out just to see if anything wants one but most of the time, I just end up wasting time. My guess, bass round here just arent that into them.

Try a mojo rig caught all my bass on them no issue adds extra movement and is amazing when you can get the senko to bounce off any rocks or structure just adds a little more life to the bait I work it like a jerk bait but not as hard, look it up man very probable that the bass are just very skidish with how your presentation it. I don't know why but it seems like ponds(depending on the size) are the some of the hardest places to get those bass to hit em.

This pone is fairly large. Depth I'm unsure of but they prefer hitting topwater over most other lures.

When I get a nudge on a hard bait, my next cast is a wacky to the same area.  Very high percentage of hooksets

Glad I wasn't the only one thinking this.

 

And Whipper Plipper, if you really are just a very young man of 10, my hat is off to you for your writing skill. Couple that with your bass fishing education and maybe one day we'll be reading pearls of wisdom from you in Bassmaster magazine.

Actually, I'm 11 now; I do plan to be a professional fisherman, also, thank you for the compliment. You can just call me David. I wish many lunkers to you.🐡

The largies in my pond absolutely love senkos.
