Been hittin' them up with Rat-L-Traps in Nova and Richmond

Recommended Posts

Title says it all, I was in Nova this past weekend and went to a pond near my GF's place, it was rainy most of the day (sat) but for 1 hour it was nice and sunny, I tied on the Rat-L-Trap and hit 3, nothing big but fun to catch something!

The next day I rent back to richmond (starting up a saltwater biocube...)and stopped by this lake behind my friend's apt to fish, hit 2 with the same rat-l-trap..the second fish was pretty decent =D

Rat L-Trap seems to be the lure of choice so far this early early spring.  You and my dad Simon.  I caught both mine on a Mann's Minus just like Vaparrothead did at Huntsman.  Looks like the crankbait bite is pickin up fellas.

Nice fish there Simon.  Tear em' up buddy!

Simon,

Nice job, I swear by rat-l-traps.  I always pull in nice fish when I use them, they hardly ever let me down.

I tried the Lake Fork Magic Shad at my friend's lake...hit 2 pics to come but I have to say...

d@mn...the action on these...WOW...you guys need to get some, the action is crazy, the tail swims back and forth so realistically...I just wish they sold bigger sizes in the 4 packs at the walmart here....

I did well on Traps yesterday at Briery Creek. I only lost two of them to the tree gods. About 40 of the bass I caught were with a 1/4 oz Trap, the rest were with a wacky rigged finesse worm. Sometimes it's the best lure when they are schooled up.

Hey SimonSays, where is this apartment pond in Richmond and does it have public access? I am new to bass fishing and am looking for some spots for when I come home from Arlington to the West End of Richmond.

Heya, this lake/pond is near shortpump, I can't remember the name of it off the top of my head but it's a private lake for the community.  I was confident fishing there only cause I had my friend's permission.  There are a few lakes open tot he public around richmond.  Message Sam (his username is Sam) and he'll point you to a few places.

Good luck!

I have been catching alot of bass out on the Potomac with a green rat-l-trap with an orange belly. Especially when the water is murky.
