Bass Fishing Murky water?

Recommended Posts

Just got back into fishing again haven't fished in many years due to something that happen one night out fishing..

 

Anyways I've never seen a Bass and never caught a Bass I know this lake I fish at has Bass because many people have caught them, but they catch them on live worms something I prefer to not do, I was curious to know if any of you would happen to know of best colors or lures to use for fishing a murky lake.

 

Another problem I have is seems these fish spook easy tried using the soft hollow body frogs, Lunkerhunt Lunker Frog Series 2.5-Inch Green Tea Style with  Lunkerhunt Lunker Frog Series 2.5-Inch Leopard, Zoom Junebug red worms, Zoom baby bass worms, few others but no luck, getting any hits, I own 2 bait casters one is the Abu Garcia Ultra max on a Abu Garcia Vendetta rod I believe it's the 6.6 rod, the other bait caster is the Kast King Speed demon on a Abu Garcia Vengeance rod  7 foot.

And a Walmart special the Booyah 3000.

I'm not sure what pound test line is on the Booyah but the Abu Garcia Ultra Max has 20lb Moss green braided line from power pro (Guy at Dick's Sporting Good's was the one who recommended it)

The Kast King Speed demon has a Berkley Vanish Fluorocarbon 14 pound test.

Attached a picture of the lake.

 

Also I'm not sure what bullet weight I should go with to increase the range of the cast currenty I've been using a 1/16 oz bullet weight when using the worms I've tried wacky rigging them tried Texas rig  no luck, spent a total of 14 hours fishing on the bank this weekend and never landed any fish. I'm pretty sure on Saturday I had a hit on the frog but but didn't set the hook seems like the fish might have felt the hook and spit it out.

 

As for hooks? I'm using 2/0 extra wide gap I also have 3/0 extra wide gap.

Tried and true black and blue stick bait (senko) and 1/4 tungsten weight 3/0 is good. Hop it, drag it, dead stick it, around cover or if you can find structure. 

Search bait, 1/2 oz lipless crank.

Local host...looks like your first fish is gonna cost about 500 bucks...calm down and just throw something that sinks to the bottom and is relatively weedless (sounds like you probably have something) to the outside edge of the weeds that you can reach. Count to 10 and if you haven't had a hit then move your cast 3' and do it again.

Try a Texas rigged green pumpkin chartreuse tail Yum Dinger. It's the lure that got me hooked on bass fishing in ponds just like that

Nice catch man. 

I hesitated to say anything, but I hope you're open to some advice. You might want to minimize the publicity youre giving for your spot. Once word gets out, you may have a lot of people going there and keeping a lot of the fish and end up ruining it.

That being said, your enthusiasm is refreshing. You might Try zoom super flukes, they usually work well too.

Congratulations, @localhost.  Wall to wall and tree-top tall!

Only thing missing was a couple "Boom goes the dynamite!"s

Hopefully if more people do start fishing down there I can catch a ride with someone to other spots, I haven't found a partner in crime to fish with yet.

 

Back in 1995 I used to fish with some older guys that were cool to hang out with on a pier not long after I met them guys I found a couple of kids my age I haven't seen them guys in years the one I heard went into the Military so I'm not sure if he even made it back alive or if he is still in the Military.

 

Just got back into fishing this year I never seen a Bass in person decided to try that spot out never was able to catch anything with fake frogs and hard plastic baits however I did end up losing at least $25 in lures to this lake.

 

Planning to make a another stop over there this weekend possibly do another 6 hours out there, weather here in Florida is gonna be turning bad in another month Hurricane season doesn't start till June but winter here is pretty much dying out now.

I’m curious as to what it was that happened when fishing one night that kept you from going back, unless its something that you cannot talk about...
