When all else fail I'm going to double down on heavy cover with whatever lure I deem necessary. Usually a texas rig .

PLASTICS!  😉

 

I'm a Bottom Feeder!

 

Once the boat comes down off of plane the first thing I grab is a Texas Rig, Wacky Rig, Shaky Head Weightless T-rig, Carolina Rig, Jig-N-Craw, Mojo Rig, Rage Rig, Drop Shot or anything that takes me to the bottom.

 

I'm gonna be casting, flipping, pitching, punching, hopping, dragging, shaking, dead sticking, or skipping.

 

I don't care if its grass, brush, timber, rocks, docks, pads, lay downs, shore line or off shore.

 

I don't care if its pre- spawn, spawn, post spawn, summer, dog days, fall, winter, morning, noon, or night.

 

Give me 2 rod-n-reels with any of the above techniques & I be happy, happy, happy!

Keitech Easy Shiner on a darter jig head.  I first start with a 4” and move to a 3” if that fails.

I fish a lot of small rivers and lakes, either wading/bank/kayak.

 

I start with a Keitech 2.8 FAT Swim Impact(white/pearl)on a 1/16oz single mono jig. I will swim it a couple of times and than jig it a few times, than finish with a erratic retrieve.

 

Since I typically only carry one rod, when not in the yak. I like the versatility of the swim bait. Im a mixed bag kind of guy, so if brim and paper mouthes want to get involved...fine by me.

I have go-to baits for situations and seasons, but not a one size fits all bait that I throw aimlessly at all times.

 

I am not going to throw a lightly weighted 4" finesse worm in 35 feet of water in howling winds, just like I am not going to throw a 3/4oz. football jig into a shallow water laydown surrounded by matted grass.....even though both are "go-to" baits for me.

 

Everything I have is a go-to or it wouldn't be in my boat.

 

This is like asking a car mech. what his go-to tool is....and his response is "a hammer".

I agree there are a lot of tools out there you need to fix a car. But to catch a bass my go to bait goes back and forth between a zoom super fluke and a 4 inch senko.( This is based on where I fish primarily ) 😏

In all seriousness, I have a " Circle of trust", which are more trusted baits (tools ) that I use that catch fish. But the 2 above consistently catch me the most fish ,with some quality fish in the mix. Last year I caught an 8.6 on a 4 inch senko. And a couple months ago my son caught an 8.2 on a zoom fluke. So it's not just about numbers!

Texas rigged worm, usually 8" Gillraker or Zoom MagII in Green Pumpkin or June Bug.  Weight varies.  If I can't catch SOMETHING with one of those I'm probably better off cutting the grass!

Ponds: Wacky Rigged 5" Senko in Green Pumpkin with Black Flake, followed by a Texas Rigged Original Trick Worm in Watermelon with Red Flake weighted with a 1/16oz bullet weight.

 

Rivers: Lil' Mr. Money 3/16oz Strike King Spinnerbait, followed by the Whopper Plopper 90 and 110 in Bone.

 

That little Spinnerbait always does me well, and it also landed me my PB LMB, weighing in at 7lbs.
