How would you rig 5 rods at new lake?

Recommended Posts

For fun,

 

If you would go to a lake you never fished, have no time to scout it, and are competing against your friend /or guy you can't stand who thinks he is better then you (for bragging rights, ha) how would you rig 5 rods?

 

Its this time of year, in the north east part of country, partly cloudy, low 50's in morning to low 70's by end of day, slight stain (2-4' visibility), from 6am to 6pm, and only 12 beers, pack of pop-tarts, and a water with you.

It would really depend if its a friend or someone I cant stand ;)! I tend to work as a team with friends so you would end up having 10 potential presentations, this would not happen with someone I dislike, obviously.

No particular order

-Crankbait

-Search bait (Spinnerbait/chatterbait, covering water)

-Tube

-Topwater like Whopper plopper

-Ned rig or dropshot in case you end up needing to finesse them

I only carry 3 rods, wether that be in my Yak or the back of someone elses boat.

 

Spinner bait on the Baitcaster(20lbs braid)

Senko on the 7' M/EF spinning rod(15lbs braid)

Keitech 3.8 Fat Impact on the 7'ML/F spinning rod(8lbs NanoFil...soon to be 10lbs braid)

 

If I know Im going to be running over lilly's or grass. I may start off with a frog on the Baitcaster, but Im not scared to burn a weightless FAT Impact over lilly pads. I lose some on that light gear, but it is real sporty!

I know I am going to be hungry and dehydrated because don't eat pop tarts or drink beer fishing, need water and snack. I would look at a lake map at home before considering what to use.

My 5 outfits would be 1 heavy jig rod, 2 MH 5 power jig & worm rods, MH crank bait rod and M finesse spinning rod.

Jigs,  t-rigged worms, spinner baits, chatter baits, buzz baits, medium diving crankbaits, surface lures, finesse worms and small swimbaits.

At a new place, with no scouting, adapatability and versatility rules. 5 setups to cover the bases, all capable of double duty:

 

1. MHF casting rod for T-Rigs and Jigs, bottom contact and target pitching to cover. Could double as a frog rod in a pinch, if needed. Rigged to start with a t-rigged creature, worm or lizard.

 

2. Another MHF or MH-MF casting rod for horizontal moving baits, especially lipless, spinnerbaits, bladed jigs, buzzbaits, whopper plopper, spooks, or other heavier topwaters. Could do 3/8oz and up crankbaits in a pinch.  Rigged to start with a buzzbait.

 

3. Short MF or MXF casting rod for jerkbaits and topwaters up to 1/2oz. Could handle light bottom contact or a senko/fluke if needed. Rigged to start with a walking popper.

 

4. MF or MXF spinning rod for senkos, flukes, tubes, grubs, or jerkbaits/ small topwaters in the wind. could do a shakyhead if needed. Rigged to start with a weightless, t-rigged or wacky senko.

 

5. MLF or MLXF spinning rod for shakyhead, ned rig, slider heads, mojo rig, drop shot, or other small open-hook plastics, e.g. small keitechs, underspins, grubs. Rigged to start with a finesse worm on a shakyhead.

You must be youthful - beer & pop tarts - really?  Pick one - savory or sweet and go with that.  Me - I tend to go with savory - a dozen or so waters, maybe a few session IPA's - a sandwich or two.   A thermos of coffee along with a breakfast sandwich driving to the lake helps with the energy level a lot.

 

Now, about the fishing - I would consider 2-4 feet visibility a significant stain.  I wouldn't tie anything on - bring all your gear and make decisions once you've seen what you'll be fishing.  I'd probably lead off with a lipless crank or a chatter bait, mostly because that is what I usually lead off with.  You're probably fishing post spawn conditions, with the fish not really set up yet in summer patterns.   That usually mean soft plastics to me.

If I'm asking the InterWeb®, my friend is most likely a better fisherman than me.

Also it would take maybe 15-30 minutes to use the same InterWeb® to get a good idea as to what a body of water might be like at a particular time of year. But to answer the question as asked:

 

Some weightless t-rig plastic

A jig

A spinnerbait

a drop shot

a top water
