Good Lures For 15-30Ft Bass?

Recommended Posts

C-Rig, spoons, 3/4 oz spinnerbait.

Right on the money.

Carolina rig you'll probably need 3/4 to a 1 ounce wieght.

Spinnerbait I would slowly, slowly crank it. Almost jig it in a way. What this will do is keep the blades spinning a little bit but will allow it to get down there where you need it.

Dead on with the 3/4 to 1 oz.weight. I fish NorthStar football jigs in them weights. Also a T-rig. The drop shot is a killer too in deep water.Don;t forget BIG worms like a 15in.Netbait C-Mac DEADLY!

??? I've used DS/tubes/crank/jigging pretty extensively, looking to expand my arsenal.

I have no clue, mostly concentrate on those 1-2 ft bass. My equipment probably couldn't handle them if they were any bigger.

The majority of my fishing is done at those depths & my #1 technique is a Texas Rig with a ¼ oz weight.

Like Catt, I tend to fish offshore structure and cover in 20+ feet of water and fish mostly jigs, TX rigs, and a couple other things. Swimbaits being a huge "other" at this time of year.

Texas Rigged Plastics, Drop Shot, Spoons, Jigs, Carolina Rig. When fishing deep, that is all that I have fished with successfully.

Take a 1 oz double willow spinnerbait, pull of the skirt, and put on a 5.5 LFT Live Magic Shad. It can be killer in those depths and it will catch some hawgs... B)

Ok, now. There are some things you just don't tell people on the interwebz. That's one of them! :angry::P

Way to give away my "secret" deep-water bass bait!

I also use the 3.5" LFT Live Magic Shad rigged the same way on a 1/2 oz. spinnerbait.

Why take the skirt off? Why not just use the swim bait as a trailer?

I bought a 1 oz. Hot Spot last month just for this purpose. Casts a mile, sinks fast, lotsa racket, easy to fish deep, good size (about 4"), but only spent about 15 minutes throwing it. So, the jury is still out and i need more time with it, but i think it's going to get me a big ol' bass or pike sometime soon. P.S.- you can hear those rattles 40 yards away for crying out loud! I may have to buy another and silence it, just in case.

I have fished both ways, with and without skirt. IMO, taking the skirt off frees up the swimbait to move more freely and I think that it looks more natural. I have caught fish with the skirt on, but seem to catch more without it. B)

I'm pretty sure I seen Bill Dance talking about using a Heddon Sonar the other day on VS fishing deep for bass, and it looks to me like it could be a killer lure. Not sure, I can't speak from experience, but perhaps it's something to look at?
