SCENARIO: five go-to setups for 1ft. of visibility

Recommended Posts

what would be your five go-to setups for:

 

  • around a foot of visibility
  • mainly hard bottom with rocks/boulders and sparse grass
  • water temps mid 70's
  • forecast of mostly sunny skies with 8-10 mph NW winds
  • lot's of brown bass with some green's mixed in

Texas Rigged plastics that move a lot of water, probably something from Rage Tail.

 

Jig-n-Craw; again a trailer the moves a lot of water.

 

Frog

 

Spinnerbait/swim jig/Chatterbait

 

4-6" swimbait

   Hey! You fishin' my lake?

   Just kidding .....   😁😁

 

   1) dark colored spinnerbait, single Colorado

   2) pink fluke on weighted hook.

   3) 5 or 6 inch boot-tail swimbait on weighted hook

   4) 4 to 7 foot depth rattling floater-diver, silver and black back

   5) Gotta get a spoon in there. Gotta. (It's the law). I'm a spoon fanatic, so I gotta include one in this list. It'd be a 3/4 oz. Dardevle, light colors low and dark colors higher up.  

   Good luck.      jj

I’d go with the following:

1-Colorado bladed Spinnerbait-Lots of thump

2-Texas rig with a bulky plastic that moves a lot of water-Moves lots of water

3-A squarebill in chartreuse or craw color.-Catches Largemouth and Smallies both very well.  

4-Topwater like a buzzbait or frog-Fun and effective

5-A jig-Because you should always have a jig tied on!

 

And a weightless Senko also works very well in water with low visibility. The slow fall and the shimmy lets the bass find it a lot better than you’d think.

   How true, how true. Some people think that in poor visibility water, you MUST have a rattle, or the bass won't find the lure. That's false. Those fish sense different things in ways that we're only beginning to understand.    jj

In lakes that receive a lot of pressure I avoid lures with loud rattles no matter what the water color is. They see so many lures that sound like dishes falling down a flight of stairs that I think they get conditioned to them pretty quickly. I will, however, throw lures with rattles that are “different.” IE a two tap or something like that but most of the time I start with a silent lure and go from there.
