hminor   to the forum.  If you want to fish Quantico one day just let me know.  I have a canoe and I can show you a few places to fish.

Guys,

Are plastics out at Quantico at this time?

I know we are in crankbait season but I caught seven at Sky Meadow State Park yesterday on Senkos and another guy fishing by me caught his first bass from the pond on a GY Hula Grub.

They would not even look at a crankbait.

Maybe a combination of both crankbaits and plastics will result in more bites?

Rondef, what do you think?  :)

Some plastics at Quantico are not getting as much action where I have been fishing. I have been getting most of my fish on crankbaits, spinnerbaits and jigs lately. Oh yeah I am still getting some top water action once in a while on Cavitrons and Rage Tail shad and toads.

But ive never fished Quantico, so what do i know, IMHO i just think a senko can get bit anytime, anywhere.

Trevor when I just started out fishing for bass all I threw were wacky rigged 4-5 senkos on a 6'6'' medium fast spinning rod with 8 pound fluoro carbon(picked that line by accident :)) with a 1/0 straight shank hook.

I did not catch alot of bass but I would usually catch a small keeper everytime I went out.

Not the best method but it will get you bit.

what are you doing all the way out there, Sam?

Were you fishing at that small pond?

I started using senkos this year and am still totally amazed at how fish respond to them.  senkos are definitely my confidence bait of the moment in pretty much any condition.  Definitely a good bait for an amateur.

pig,

i know they will get you bites, i was just saying it's a little far fetched to say you'll get bit anywhere anytime if you're using a senko
