quiet presentation

Recommended Posts

2 get reaction strikes with lures like jig and pigs and senkos and all that do u have 2 present the lure quietly? and my second question is how do u skip a lure quietly? i saw a pro fishing my lake and he was skipping senkos under and around the boat docks and when the lure went into the water is barley made a splash

i think i know what your saying,but jigs and senkos arent reaction baits they are finess baits,slow actions so the bass get a good look at them. reaction baits such as spinner baits or fast moving baits that bass hit out of a reaction instead of conveience.if a bass is positioned in cover you want to present him a bait that doesnt alarm him in any way.to make it as easy for him to take your presntation w/o any effort on his part.they are lazy,opportunistic creatures and suckers for a easy meal.practice and time fishing is the only way to master presentation.skipping is a advantaced technique,ive been fishing for many yrs. and havent mastered it yet.i only try and skip w/ a spinning reel as ive ruined many spool of line w/ a baitcaster.tight lines, mike

As Mike said, jigs and senkos are not reaction strike baits,(not typically).  Reaction baits excite fish, appeal to their senses ex.-vibration, sound, sight, and do not have to be presented quitely, it actually may be better for it to make a little splash on the entry.

About the skipping- I can skip a jig pretty well, not quitely, but it will skip.  As for Senkos I couldn't skip one if my life depended on it, but hey, i'm not a pro.  I'm sure it would be much more effective if you could skip your lure quietly, but I just don't know how to do that with a jig, let alone a Senko.

practice,practice,practice.

I find that it's much easier to skip the closer you are to the water, I can skip anything in a kayak, but being so close to the water and in a sitting position, it's hard to flip or pitch. If i'm having trouble getting a quiet presentation i'll cast onto the bank and gently twitch the lure into the water, I get ALOT more hits this way also it seems.

someone can explain the difference better than i can but to me a reaction strike is one where the bass hits it out of a reaction rather than as an effort to feed.  somthing like a dropshot or other slow moving worm a bass eats it because its an easy meal.  other baits it see whizzing by its head and its reflex reaction is to strike at it.  you can also get a reaction strike with some heavy worms and jigs if you blow it by them fast on the fall.  this is my understanding but someone more knowledgeable should chime in and may be able to better clarify.

Hm i'll try to explain the best i can. :-? ;)

Its like this, when a senko drops in front, near, or where ever the bass sees it, it looks like a good meal for him. But then theres a reaction strike, kinda like a buzz bait. As we all know buzz baits make noise on top of the water. So the bass senses the buzz because of the noise and water disturbance it sees a good meal. Usually a buzz bait would be reeled slow in most cases, so the bass won't have too chase it much but, on some days they like the buzz churning like hell across the water.

Anyways i hope that helps, but, can someone explain to me what the point is of skipping a senko?  ;D

I've dropped finesse worms right on bass pitching and got instant bites, what I'd call reaction bites. It's the suddenness of a lure intruding that doesn't give them time to look it over first that makes it a reaction bite. A hunger bite might usually involve a bass doing some stalking, sizing a lure up.

Skipping a lure is the same principle as skipping a flat stone over the water. It makes little or no noise, and when stopping it simply sinks quietly. You need a low trajectory, sharp snap of the rod. Any lure that's compact will skip somewhat. You can learn to skip a Senko. Work on Texas rigged Senkos first, then whacky rigged. Slip a split ring over the middle of the worm and hook that else the Senko tends to tear in half hitting the water too hard on the first skip.
