Lizards

Recommended Posts

Hey yall,

Im pretty new to the forum and live in GA fishin mainly decent sized weedy ponds. Its summer and I like throwing a lizard and other soft plastics mid-day when it gets hot and its GA so it does get hot, and produce well. But I just want your opinions on colors rigging, do you use weights, weights with a bead, screw in bullet weights, free sliding bullet wieghts, colors, technique, etc.

Thanks!

um i use all kinds but my new favorite are the mann's hard nose lizards.. they are nothing but the truth! i like to florida rig with a 3/8oz screw- lok weight sometimes but most of the time its just a regular ol texas rig with a 3/8 oz tru-tungsten weight and a 4/0 gamakatsu EWG hook. They are really good on a carolina rig too! i just use a 3/8oz tungsten egg sinker (smaller or bigger depending on bottom composition) and the same hook. 99% of the time i use more natural colors like watermelon or watermelon/red . If the water has more stain to it i will use a black/blue or maybe even a junebug. Anyways i hope that helps ya!

Good luck and Tight Lines

My favorite is a zoom 6" green pumpkin lizard.  Works everywhere.

T rig or C rig is how I mostly fish them.  Sometimes on a shaky head.

Zoom worms are my favorite. I like fishing them on a carolina rig, or a texas rig with a screw in sinker for heavy cover. When using a carolina rig, I use a brass sinker and glass beads to create lots of sound.

My preference is the GYCB Laminated Lizard; split shot rig;

Gamakatsu 4/0 EWG Offset Worm Hook; fished on spinning

tackle and light line. The action is erratic, the "feel" is improved

and the bass are rarely gut hooked.

The split shot rig will lift the lizard off the bottom when it is

pulled forward, not hopped. Sometimes a slow, steady

retrieve is the ticket. Otherwise, move and let sit, then repeat

until you feel you are out of the zone.

During spawn, which it is right now in PA where I am, I like a Texas rig and 1/8 oz free bullet weight. Let it sink and slowly bump it through spawning areas along the bottom. Color all depends on the water clarity and sun, in the particular lakes I fish I usually use darker colors, dark greens, dark purples, dark blues.

Try a Rage Tail Lizard. You will be amazed at the action it has compared to every other lizard out there. A bit thicker body also.

T-rig with 1/8 oz weight and throw around shallow cover.

Can't go wrong with Green Pumpkin. Dip tail in Chartreuse JJ's Magic and you're set.

When I am casting a lizard I use a free sliding weight sometimes with a bead with a offset hook. If I am pitching a lizard I use a Florida rig weight with a straight shank flipping hook. Colors I always kept simple. In clear water I used pumpkin seed, watermelon, greenpumpkin, in stained water I fish a lot of junebug, redbug, tequila, redshad muddy water black/blue, black chartreuse, black blue flake, black neon......ok maybe not so simple ;)
