Lizards Near Steep Bluff Walls

Recommended Posts

On the back of my local lake are some real steep,real tall bluff walls. Water is about 25-40 feet depending on where your sitting.I occasionally see some gray lizards running all over these walls.

Im thinking that during a strong wind and other times,perhaps these lizards fall in the water.

Any thoughts on throwing a plastic lizard up against these bluff walls. What would be the best approach C-rig,T-rig,Dropshot?

What other technique with a lizard might work well?

Dropshot fished right next to the pilings. Killer. Try a Rage Lizard.

A lizard is like any other plastic bait, it works, in practical terms, in any technique and rigging method.

A bait doesn´t have to look like something a bass might eat, actually lizards are not imitating lizards, they theoreticaly imitate water dogs/salamanders. There ain´t no salamanders in my neck of the woods, soft plastic lizards work as well as any other soft plastic bait.

A wacky rigged plastic or a keel weighted hook perhaps.

Yep. Treat them as you would any other plastic bait. I used to use lizards a lot more than I do now. It is still my go-to C-rig bait.

On many steep rock banks there are irregularities in the face that hold fish. If you can find these at the depth fish are holding, let the good times roll. A jig, t-rigged or wacky rigged plastic (either weighted or not), would be my choice.
