If you had to catch 1 bass that day

Recommended Posts

Lets say you're in a club tournament or fishing with friends and at 1pm you haven't had a bite all day after emptying your tacklebox.  Its a major cold front and the bass are shut down.  Your friends are fishless too.  You'll be done fishing around 3pm and you need to catch 1 keeper bass.

Make up your own fishing scenario as far as type of lake and bottom structure or cover.

What would you do??

Beat the heck out of the banks with a spinnerbait. ;D If that didn't work a drag net on the way in. ;)

Spinnerbait, slow rolled, all over the place.  This worked for a lunker bonus last year, after temps dipped close to the freezing point.  Best wad of cash ever for a 3-2, LOL.

i fish in a club in tennessee and have had this situation come up a couple times.   the way our club works to you have to weigh in one keeper to get points. and there have been days where i did not have a keeper 15 inch largemouth.   but the limit for a kentuck bass or (spot) is only 12 inches.   there is a rock point in a creek that i like to fish that i can go there anytime of the year and usually catch at least one 12 inch spot regardless of the weather. on a shakey head rig.   this is what i do. problem is that i did not find this spot untill half way through the season last year lol

Fly-line a crawler on my micro-light. It might not be a keeper.... heck, it might not even be a bass ! Anything will eat a crawler..... Which is fine, as I'll play with any fish that wants to play with me :-)

Peace,

Fish

probably flip a creature/craw bait into HEAVY cover.

I read somewhere that dead vegetation hold heat, thus holding fish if a front came through. dunno if thats true or not, but its something to consider if in that situation.

Wacky rigged senko or shakey head worm slowly dropped along any irregularities along a deep break, preferably with weeds present.

Start at inside and outside turns and points.

Hey Hammer

I haven't used live bait since 1986..

Why the heck not ?  ;-)

Actually, I threw a few live crawlers yesterday.... but both of the two fish I caught, were on artificials. Go figure :-)

Peace,

Fish

Two things have helped me in that senario. Either a spinnerbait or a T-Rigged 4" senko. Last year there were a couple times when I just kept tossing a lipless crankbait to the same place until the fish got aggrivated enough to strike.

You haven't mentioned what time of the year it is, what the water temperature was prior to the cold front, the characteristics of the lake, etc.  etc.  How I would approach it in March would be different than I would in Late June or July or October.  Not trying to be a smart alleck.  Just a lot of variables to look at.

6" original Culprit worm, crawdad color, lightweight black brass bullet weight, t-rigged on 2/0 gamy hook, smeared in smelly jelly.  Never fails.
