Bedding Bass

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to this message board and would like to introduce myself, and what beter way to do that than with a question. I fish a farm pond (maybe big enough to be a lake). a few miles from where I live. I went fishing yesterday and there were some good size bass swimming right up on the bank where I was fishing but I couldn't get them to bite anything. I tried slow running a spinnerbait and jigging it without any results. If anyone can give a few ideas for things to try I would apreciate it.

What part of the country? Where they on beds or looking to bed?

You are more than likely going to have to use a soft plastic (lizard, brush hog, tube. worm, fluke, crawdad) or a jig.  I did read in an article somewhere though that if you run the spinnerbait into the back end of a bass and then immediatetly cast back at they will more then likely strike.  I haven't tried it, but it sounds like it might work.  I have had the most sucess with plastic lizards.

I live in NOrth Carolina, so when I went to the pond yesterday it was 85 degrees and breezy. Just right. I was mostly fishing for brim but was also bass fishing as well. The fish were holding about 3 feet of of their beds.

If you can sight fish with a tube, crawfish or lizard that might be the deal. If the day is windy use a spinnerbait, rattletrap, or jerkbait. Drop shot is another option or a jig. buzzbaits and other topwater at times can be killer on beds when the  fish are not really hanging right on the bed.
