Underwater Humps, Drop Off, and Ledges

Recommended Posts

Ok guys so I've been fishing from shore since I was very little and now since I got myself a little dingy that I can actually fish from a boat. I'm a total noob at boat fishing. I read alot about fishing underwater structures but how would you fish these underwater structures? Like in underwater Humps, Drop offs, and Ledges. What lure will be the lure of choice? I'm so noob.

Also, you could toss a ds wacky rigged Senco, t rig a worm, and work it up and down the other side of a hump, up the side of a ledge..ect, same goes for tossin creatures, craws and such.

First of all, it's going to be difficult to locate structure unless you have one of two things. A sonar of some kind. They are very reasonably priced these days. You can pick one up at BPS or Dicks for under $100.. this will be your best investment in helping you find structures. Or, a hand line if you can't afford a sonar unit.

The later is a 1/4" - 3/8" nylon line with a heavy (1/4 - 1/2 lb.) weight attached to it. It's marked off in 5' intervals with knots & ribbons signifying the various depths. The one I use to use, years ago, was marked at 15', 20' 25', & 30'. Dropping this down several times over an area will tell you what you need to know about bottom configurations.

Once you find a hump or drop off, there are a multitude of presentations available to you. The tackle section of any sporting goods store is loaded with just about anything that bass will hit. You need to cover the top, mid-sections and bottom of the area you intend to fish. Keep that in mind. Learn a few good techniques such as Texas rigging, drop shotting and crankbait fishing.

It's a long road you are venturing on....the important thing is to have FUN in your travels. :)
