what technique have you never tried?

Recommended Posts

We post a lot about favorite techniques, difficult techniques, etc.  What have you just never tried?  

 

For me, it is c-rig, drop shot, whopper plopper, walk the dog,, fluke.

I’m a fairly new angler, so the list of techniques I have tried is probably shorter than the list of stuff I haven’t. I just bought my first baitcasting outfit yesterday and now I’ve got a whole new world of stuff to explore this year. I’m probably most excited to try out frogging, working a jig around timber, and throwing big swimbaits.

Whopper Plopper. Tokyo Rig. 

 

I'm still not buying into the Whopper Plopper snake oil.

C-Rig and A-Rig

Tokyo Rig because it's an expensive silly looking gimmick. Alabama Rig. Never fished a spoon. True swimbait (fished smaller ones but I've never fished one of the big ones).

Glide bait, Swimbait, A-rig, Flukes, Tubes, Spoons, Walking hard baits, Tokyo rig, Mojo rig, Neko rig.

 

I am only in my 3rd year of bass fishing so I am working on dialing in the techniques I am good at before investing time on the water to learning new techniques.  I have a handful of techniques that I have confidence in for each part of the water column and branch out to learn more on the days I can’t buy a bite.

That's a shame. See that beautiful smallie in your photo. You'd have a great time fishing a WP for those babies.

I'm another, haven't bought into the whopper plopper scam. To me it's just a hardbait trying to be a buzzbait. Seeing how I hardly fish a buzzbait, whopper plopper was a easy No. 

 

Y'all enjoy them.

How is it a scam? It's a little expensive but it will last forever unless you put it in a tree. It accounts for dozens of nice fish for me every year. It also isn't like a buzzbait at all. You can't pause a buzzbait. You can pause a Plopper. It's more like a buzzbait and a popper made a baby. It's a fantastic bait.

C-rig and A-rig.  I have tied on a C-Rig a few times but never fished it for long as the weight kept wegding in rocks. My state limits A-rigs to two jigheads so it never seemed worth the bother.

The Chicken was clearly invented by someone who sells plastics, it’s almost always a “one and done” in my experience.   Sometimes I can get two bass on a Trickworm rigged this way but it’s not a sure thing. 

 

It’s a decent rig for throwing a really lightly weighted plastic into the gaps between pads though.

Honestly I’ve never tried the float-n-fly. Want to try it sometime soon but I just don’t get it.

I started to include that one.

But then I remembered I have used it a handful of times.

My version of it made dead sticking a Senko feel like throwing a buzzbait.

Did I mention it was slow . . .?

A spoon. I've fished johnson silver minnows and daredevils plenty but I don't use those big jigging spoons.
