I need SERIOUS Help!!!

Recommended Posts

I am completely new to bass fishing and frankly I haven't got a clue. The water here is murky/muddy, any input on what kind of lures I should be using for this time of year? PLEASE HELP. ???

I live in Kentucky, fishing on a small lake, it used to be the city resevoir.  Weather has just broken the 60 degree mark this week.....

Get a dark color (black/blue) spinnerbait with a Colorado blade or a buzzbait.  If the water is murky keep it noisy.

i have to agree with bassin101 a dark colored spinner bait are a buzz bait if the water has been a stable 60 degrees those sows should be cruzing the flats i would even go with a jig but being you said you were new to bass fishing just keep it simple spinners buzz baits are top water chuggers and texas are carolin rigged worms should all produce for you in the months to come if you don't get bit just keep on slowing down

keep er wet and keep er tight

I will second the jig and if the water is dirty a rattling jig in dark colors also I would throw a suspending jerk bait like a gold Rapala Husky Jerk or an Xrap.  They rattle and they suspend quite nice.

Now is jerkbait primetime!!

If your air temp just broke the 60 degree mark this week, then you are going to have to go with a slower presentation. Your water  temps are still going to be in the fortys or so. If the water is real murky, then I would wait untill it clears up before trying to venture out for a fishing trip.

Cold water+Muddy water= NO FISH

After the water clears, I would opt for a some type of suspending jerkbait or carolina rig. The jig-n-pig is also a good way to go. Learn to fish the jig. It is hard to master, but it is worth the time.

Spinnerbaits, crankbaits and lipless crankbaits with dark colors.

Try a dark colored jig

Dark colors(black,purple,watermelon) should work well for you. Try a jig & pig or dark plastics. Just keep it real slow.  Yes, dark spinnerbaits are good but try some flourescent/bright(yellow/orange/red) ones also if the water is murky.  Some fish naturally hang out near the shore more than others. So, a crankbait fished with a slow(or stop and go)retrieve should work also. I catch fish within 3 ft. of the bank all the time! I would use baits with reds, oranges and again bright flourescent colors. Give us an update sometime!... ;)
