If you were fishing a lake next weekend...

Recommended Posts

I know this is very general but... Let's assume you were fishing a lake in the Kentucky/Tennessee area next weekend. You had 3 rods of your choice. What 3 baits would you have tied on?

The OP ask about Kentucky/Tennesse. The answer is 

1. Lipless  2. Jerkbait - because that’s what they’re hitting right now

3. T-rig. - because you should always have a t-rig tied on.

Have to try a jerk bait.  Have to try a shaky head.  Have to try a ned rig.  Have to try a jig.   Have to try a white spinnerbait (parallel any bluff banks). Might want to try a float & fly.  Might want to try a Biffle Bug.  Can't go fishing without trying a wacky senko.  Perhaps a soft plastic shad instead of a jerk bait.  Maybe a Bubba size swim bait, maybe a more modest sized swim bait.

 

Why stop a 3 rigs?   Without trying very hard, we're up to 10 different rigs and we haven't mentioned Wiggle Warts or Tubes and how heavy a jig were we going to throw, might need to bring several rigs just to cover the range of jig weights.    Brewer Sliders are an option nearly any time of year.    Glad I could help.

Fish the 3 baits you have the most confidence in.....Then adjust depth as needed with any of them.

 

I often make the mistake of trying too many options, but have gotten better at just sticking with what I have confidence in and know have always caught fish for me in most conditions.

 

Plastics

Jigs

Lipless cranks & jerkbaits

This time of year I would be using a lipless crankbait, bladed jig, or some kind of plastic.
