Are The Big Bass With The Little Bass?

Recommended Posts

Me and my friend been going to new lakes on the hunt for big bass this year. And alot of these spots we goto you can cast out and pull in small bass like under a pound bass. And its deterring us from fishing there we usually walk to a different spot that looks good, the small bass aren't to frequent like 15 casts + youll get a hit or get one, but there all small. were not looking for that. Do the 3+ pound bass stay around these small bass areas or not?

In my experience yes iv caught a lot of 4+ bass in with dinks but there usually stingier towards your presentation.

Last year I was fishing a bunch of beds in a cove and there was a 5lb female cruising around all over the spot it wouldent hit anything id throw shakey head after shakey head at her with no luck but caught ever bedded fish in there trying to get the big girl to bite. Jigs didn't work t rigs didn't work spinners cranks u name it nothing. Then I threw a luck e strike floating worm from walmart weightless out there it looks like a snake when twitched and she nailed it when it coiled up on a lilly pad. These worms are the most basic pos things u could buy to but they look like a live night crawler when laying there motionless.

And there been other times where its dink after dink till whoa that ones bigger u say to ur self

Maybe throw a little bigger bait out there.

When you see a big cruiser like this, try tossing a 7" Senko well ahead of the course it's swimming on. I think you will be plesantly surpirsed! :)

Generally speaking bass tend to school by year class. Small bass and any other smaller size fish are part of the food chain for larger adult size bass.

Bass between 10" to 12", 1/2 to 3/4 LB, are last years juvenal bass very aggressive and easier to catch than adult size bass.

It sounds like you are fishing from shore; try fishing areas that have steeper banks, the dam areas or points that lead into deep water where larger size bass tend to be located. Fish at night when larger size bass are more active near shore.

I agree with WRB. Rarely do I catch bigger bass in with little bass.

There´s a chance that there may be a few larger bass in between the lil ones, but as WRB mentioned, bass of the same age/size hang together, throwing a larger bait may help, but not by much in my experience, there are more lil ones and they will hit the bait before a larger one has a chance to take a look at it.
