coffee water?

Recommended Posts

I got this pond  that has coffee water, super stained but not muddy.  its a small pond. theres big bass here, on of them haunts me. but when i lost those 2 fish that day, the water was super low( severe drought) and muddy (not stained). the bass were congregated in the deepest spot. i hooked one deadsticking a big 9 inch topwater swimbait. missed it because i was signing to my deaf buddy.  the 2nd one, absolute tank. was on a chatterbait down deep. thought i hooked a log till it moved. user error. 

now that the water is back to normal. how would you guys fish this place? its got lot of logs, stumps, and lily pads. deep water and an 8-10 foot channel that connects the 2 basin. theres also super shallow areas as well. 

what lures would you guys fish? do i go really shallow or target the drop offs and deeper water?

Start with what worked before. Then top, middle, bottom baits.

I would fish logs , stumps and lily pads with buzzbaits , spinnerbaits , worms... any lures that are relatively snag-less .

I fish a lot of tannic (coffee) water in La. because of the cypress leaves staining it so.  I have learned that chartreuse is a great color, especially when mixed with other colors like green and blue.  Think sexy shad colored spinnerbaits and such. It seems the water tinge tones the chartreuse down and really looks good.  A Strike King Rage Tail Shad in green pumpkin / chartreuse rigged tex posed is killer among those laydowns. rs.php?path=SKRS-GPC-1.jpg

I'd try big purple rubber worms, 10-12 inches on a c-rig unless that will get you hung up.  Then go Texas style. 

 

And I can't believe you're blaming mark for missing that fish!!!

Wacky Senkos

Zoom Trick Worms Texas rigged

Jig and Pig

Zoom finesse worms

 

Always throw spinnerbaits, Chatterbaits, Swimming Senkos, swimming jigs, square billed small crankbaits, 1.5 or Bandit 100 sizes. Frogs.

 

The fish will tell you what they want.

 

Have fun.

hahaha nah wasnt mark. it was a different buddy.  it was a good fish to. just took the cast, hes trying to get my attention to talk to me. the rod under my arm trying to sign, then the fish hits! NOOOO. it was a good fish to.

i lost a rod salmon fishing in NY. high river fast and muddy, i was talking to mark and drop the rod in the water. that went bye bye.

chartreuse, ill add it to my line up. i got an all chartreuse ms slammer. its a big 9 inch  swimbait. 
i fished alot of my big swimbaits that day. especially the 15 inch slammer snake. its black with red spots, idk if the color was a good choice. but felt like the bait was a good choice in the swamp.
