What to do?

Recommended Posts

I went fishing today and the fish where I live are just starting to spawn at these ponds that I fish. I literally saw 30-40     2-5 pound bass in about 6 inches of water right on the bank. I threw everything I had at them and the most they would do was follow my bait and then just stop and turn around if they were in the middle of pond and if they were the ones on the bank they would not even look at my bait. It was very frustrating, so I was wondering if there are any baits that would catch them and are they doing this because they just started spawning or what.

Slow down your presentation with some finesse worms and shallow drop shotting or shaking head techniques.

Stack that bait in front of there noses and keep it there, eventually they will get sick of it being in their spawning bed and attack it just to try and scare it off.

I would think that should help do the trick. Force them to have no choice but to bite

I threw about a 5 inch motor oil worm with a small bullet weight on their beds, becuase I have had good luck with that setup before with bedded bass about a week ago on a different pond in a completely different area. I don't think I left it on their beds long enough then. I won't be fishing these ponds for at least another 2 weeks maybe they will be feeding more actively on their beds by then. Is it just something they do right when they start to spawn?

Thanks for the info guys. I have some river2sea crawdads that have a weighted tail sit with the claws facing directly up and a hook like a jig would have, would this serve the same purpose.
