Re: HELP

Recommended Posts

I've got a lake I fish in Northeastern OK, where that happens with nearly every fish you catch.

I've had as many as 6 other bass follow a caught fish all the way to the boat.

This happens pretty often.  It's obviously a sign that you're around a good school of bass. Don't be surprised if a large one actually atacks a smaller one.  Often if the bass are close in size, by letting the hooked bass swim, you can get a double header if using a two or three hook bait. Liek a pack of hungry wolves, they always want what the other has.

When a fishery has lots of bass in it, you'll see this quite a bit, but when it declines, it's more of a rarity. Looks like you have a good place to fish.

Years ago when few access points were available, we used to have two or three follower smallmouth regularly on our floats, but as civilization esp. more anglers found out about the quality of fishing, we rarely see quality bass following the hooked fish these days. The decline in numbers of fish is the reason.

    A lot of times what the other bass is doing is trying to get part of his dinner. It has happend to me where the one bass spits out my bait and the other bass nabs it right away. EXCITEMENT!

Whenever I see bass schooling like you explained I have two rods ready to go so when you have a small fish with a lunker following you can catch the lunker and shake off the smaller fish. This is if you are not fishing tournaments.
