Two bass, one lure, one cast

Recommended Posts

My wife, lovely, talented, and brainy, is the only person I have ever seen catch two nice bass on one lure, one cast.  First she says, "I got one"; next she says, "Uh, it's in the weeds I think"; then she hauls up a mess of weeds and I can see what's in there but she can't.  "What am I looking at?" she asks.  I say, "Oh, I do love to fish with a woman who doesn't mess around."  I untangled two fine bass--a matched pair, over 16", probably 3 and a half pounds of Michigan L.M.  This was in October a couple years ago.  The lure was a Rapala, with a bass each on the trebles at either end.  Greedy guys that they are, the second obviously tried to steal the bait from the first.

We'd like to know who else has managed this one.  She's got bragging rights for the rest of her life.

Today's tip:  You can't see under the water until you know what's there.

I have only done that on a sea bass fishing trip off the coast of Washington. We would get one on and wait until a second one hit. It might take awhile to get the first one and the second would be quick.

I caught 2 bass at the same time on a Rattlin Rogue. It has only happened once. The funny thing is that I saw two caught on top water lure while watching a fishing show the night before my fishing trip. I made a comment to my wife that this has never happened to me. Pretty cool!!!  :) That was the only day I forgot to bring my camera. :'(

A buddy and I were throwing crankbaits on a steep bank when he hooked two bass at once. At first we thought the second fish was following the hooked fish, but both were hooked and landed on the same bait.

I have done this twice, both were on the same day with a TD Vibrations.

The first time it happened both of the fish were less than a pound each.

The Second time both of them were over two pounds.

One thing is they didn't fight very hard they were heavy but didn't have any fight in em.

There was a show on TV last week where they threw a cranbait into a school of Piranha, they were hanging all over the trebles. They weren't fishing for them, but they kept interfering with his fishing for some other huge Amazon fish.

Haven't done it myself but I was fishing with a buddy of mine last September and he caught 2 on a Zara Spook on the same cast.  We got a picture to prove it, too ;).

I haven't done the EXACT same thing, but i've done CLOSE! I didn't catch two bass one on each hook...

but i did fish with a swimming shad hardbait, which had 3 trebble hooks, i was fishing in Maryland (my uncle and aunt brought us on a canoeing trip down the Rappahannock River) and we stopped for a lunch break on a sand dune near shore. And i walked a few hundred feet to find a tributary running off from the main river and it was like a shallow creek. I cast the shad hardbait close to the shore and reeled it back towards me wading in the water (which was only like 1-3 feet deep) and on the way back to me on the 3rd cast i felt a hard hit! I set the hook and fought him back, when i got to him i hoisted the bass up and looked in his mouth to get the hook out, and there was a smaller bass inside his mouth!!  :o :o :o

it was awesome! Too bad we didn't get any pictures. I swear that bass weighed in a good 3 pounds with the other little bass inside. It was a decent 14" fish with a like 5" bass inside of it's mouth...

2 in 1 baby! Since then i haven't been able to do it...(it was like 2 years ago)

Them hardbait swimming shads/minnows became my favorite bait after that. I just use the stop and go presentation...

God bless  8-)

I caught 3 fish on one cast on some schooling spots with my little Alabama Rig that I came up with. Here is the picture.

The very next cast I caught 2 fish. Had a limit in 2 casts :)

:o

Never seen that.

What's an Alabama rig?

I've rigged two poppers to one another.  A small shad patterned one in front with a larger bass patterned chasing it.  It's caught me a couple bass on the same cast a couple times.  Never 3..... ;D

I've done this a couple of times.  I've caught two little dink bass (less than 8") on a Chug bug once, and I've caught two sand bass on a crankbait (one was real small, the other about 1 pound).  T-Mike, did you win the tournament that day?

Back in 2000, around noon, my client was eating lunch, I threw a top water rapala sputterbug over a big boulder in shallow water. A 16" smallie came up and took it back down to the boulder where a 19" smallie tried to take it away and got caught on the other hook. The photo is in my 2000 photo  section of my web page. Last photo on the bottom. www.ldguideservice.com

Caught two smallmouth on a wal-mart golden shiner floating minnow last fall.  First smallmouth that I ever caught!!  First was 14", second was about 8".  Haven't caught a smallmouth since.

So I see my Better Three-Quarters is in good company.  Now 5 on 2 casts, that is impressive.  Good thing you've got the picture.

----------------------

Take your wife fishing tomorrow.  You're bound to learn something.  Seriously, women are very good at picking up the details you've been missing.  My wife says things like, "The bass are in the lily pads now."  She catches a couple.  "Now they're on the dropoff."  Again, a couple more.  I love it.

I've had that happen once.  We were fishing a little man-made pond in a brand new development that my brother-in-law was working at.  There were only bass in this pond, and apparently, they were starving.  It was litterally every cast that you caught a fish.  I threw my pecil popper out, hooked a little fish, and as I was reeling it in, another bass came up and hit the other trebble hook.  Freaky, yes, but like I said, those fish were so hungry you could have caught them with a saftey pin and a length of yarn.
