Baits for 30+ FOW?

Recommended Posts

What lures/techniques would you use in the this circumstance:

Northern River, 30-35 FOW that's muddy and 65 degrees.  Visibility is 2' or less.

 

The smallies are down there because your boat partner is catching them on a drop shot.  What lures/techniques would you use  to get the attention of brown bass?

Drop shot….. sorry couldn’t resist 

 

I also like a 3 inch tiny fluke on jig head, spoon, tube, and Carolina rig 

Right on the drop shot. If your friend is catching them, duplicate what he is doing.

Jewel Baits Live Spin is a good search bait at deeper depths. You can countdown approx 2 feet per second to desired depth in water column:

A drop shot is always a good choice. I have not used them much in muddy water so I don't know how effective it would be in those conditions.

 

I throw a wobblehead jig with a creature bait in those kinds of depths out here. Depending on the current I would use a 1/2, 3/4 or 1oz version with a creature bait. I have been liking the Zoom Z Craw because the two flappers on it really flutter a lot. I think that makes it easy for the fish to find in deep water.
