I think OSP.made those 'hairy dice' to show bass will literally  eat anything.  I bet you could make a 'hairy hot wheels car' that would get bit if you drug it slowly on the bottom.


Ha, yeah I can see two lure designers having a bet to see if it would work. Somebody lost a crap ton of Yen because Holy Smokes they catch them. Panfish dig them too.

on Elephant Butte lake, I watched my brother catch a bass on a nail clipper he attached a hook to.  

the bass brain is smaller than a pea I bet.

I bought my first topwater popper, the berkley one, not a huge deal but hopefully I'll get some nice blowups on it this summer. I will also be trying out weightless fluke fishing with some SK caffeine shads. Otherwise all of my tackle purchasing has been re-stocking

I tied on a jerk bait today so I guess add that to the list.  

 

I caught 3 and had 2 get off so I'd say my confidence skyrocketed with that one all at once!

 

Here's my first ever jerkbait fish!

Thought of another one I going to try....

 

Looks like a promising Ned bait. Rabid Fox Tail.

I used to make something like that, it works great, but not sure it adds much once the water warms up a tad. They will catch for sure.

berkley's Gilly has been out for a while, but I'm gonna throw it for the first time on sunday and during spawn after that. I'm gonna be on a boat so I'm going to try doing a mojo-style rigging - pegged worm weight about 18-20" up, with 110 gilly side hooked on 3/0 offset shank EWG & 1/32 nail in the nose.  I'm hoping to create a bit of a nose-down hunting type action. Like the gill is gonna swim around and then inspect the lakebed for food. I feel like this will be especially effective during spawn. When I'm on the shore of the shallow cove, it'll be a heavy C-rig but I'm probably gonna peg a black bullet-style float up against the plastic plus 1/16oz nail in hopes of slowing the fall rate but keeping it upright. Detecting strikes with the C rig will be an issue but a pegged weight will get slipped down the length of the line from shore.

Sunday will be probably still pre-spawn with maaaaaybe an early bedding fish so I'm expecting to wear out the mag flukes/lizards, chatterbaits, and lipless. Might even bring a paddletail, I did get some of berkley's dark sleeper clones, the 1oz variety
