What strategies/tactics do you use to catch largemouth bass under 3lbs?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

There are endless tips, videos, tackle reviews on how to catch monster largemouth bass.  I tend to fish smaller lakes where there are lots of largemouth bass around 1 to 2 1/2 pounds and catching a 3 pound LMB is considered a big deal, but either way, it's just a lot of fun to get out there and fish!  

 

So here's my question.... what worms/lures/tackle, presentation, etc work great for catching LMB's on the smaller side at the end of the summer in clear lakes that don't have much structure? 

 

Thank you,

Clear lake, not a lot of structure, end of summer... hmmm... start with a topwater early, a spook/walking topwater or whopperplopper in bone or white.  Use these to cover water and find fish.  Once the sun gets on the water, a weightless senko, 4" dropshot, shakey head, or ned rig in green pumpkin or watermelon candy around every stick, dock, limb in the water.  Good luck dude!

A wacky rig catches all different sizes and works great in clear water where there isn't a lot of cover provided it isn't too deep.

Fish at night... especially that time of year.  You might be pleasantly surprised :)

snag them, works for big fish, should work for smaller ones...

Pretty much everything that people post about catching monster bass will catch smaller ones too. Where I fish we have a lot of smaller largemouths too. They will bite any of the baits that people recommend for giants.
