What is your #1 fish catching tactic


Recommended Posts

specifically what bait would you throw and what method would you employ if you had to catch fish. Not necessarily big fish, just a technique that catches a lot of fish for you?

I would likely use a Split Shot rig and a small 4" curly tail worm by RoboWorm.

My second option would be a 1/16oz jig n pig on 6lb line.

I would have to say cranking, specifically a medium diving Bandit would be my favorite lure and one that always seems to catch fish. I can put it on heavy line and fish it shallow, or put it on lighter line and get down a little deeper than normal. It caters to the appetite of a hungry fish, but can also be used as a reaction bait when the fish are alittle sluggish.

5" Senko if I can't use live bait.

The most fish I have ever caught were white bass on the downstream side of Diamond Island, about ten miles below Pickwick Dam. My partner and I went through eight quart boxes of baby crawdads and four or five dozen shiners. Ultra-light equipment, 1 - 2 1/2 lb bass on EVERY cast!

Number two was fishing crickets for bluegill. I don't know how many we caught, but after a couple of hours we were running out of bait so we started using "pieces" and that worked fine.

When wading the river I usually carry crankbaits and 3" Kalin or Zoom Fat Albert grubs with a few insider jigs, I travel pretty light.

I love the Yamamoto Senkos, especially anywhere from the 4-6 inch. The best colors in my mind are white and pink. I've caught countless fish in countless situations and countless places. No weights, just the Senko. It's an odd plastic. It seems pretty heavy in your hand but once you get it rigged properly, and when I say properly I mean PERFECT, it will fall very very slowly and have a consistent wobble to the tail. Try them out, even though they aren't the cheapest bait on the market.

On a River:  I would put a 4" DT Hula Grub on a 1/4 oz. football head.  I fish it on 10 pound fluorocarbon line and spinning tackle.  If you can get it bumping along the bottom its only a matter of time.

On a Lake:  A 8" Yamamoto worm w/ 1/8 oz bullet head.  Fish it in and around weeds on 12-14 pound line.

My #1 fish catching tactic is throwing a clear tiny torpedo with a red treble hook, and slow jerk it back.  Will catch any fish and bass any time of the day for me.  

Wish them dam bluegills would leave it alone...lmao :o

If it's late in a tournament and I need a fish or two to make my limit,I go to the spinnerbait and cover alot of water.Fishing well known fish-holding places only (docks,laydown brush,deep brushpiles) you will eventually run across an aggressive fish at one of those places.

This strategy applies only after the water reaches at least 50-52. ;)

1) Spinnerbait

2) Rattle trap

If I just had to catch fish, any fish, it would be a silver Rapala minnow.

I agree. When I'm fishing for small bass in a lake or pond with bass not very big, and most likely in a canoe, I like a size 5-6 Rapala. Prefereably, the Floating Rapala.
