Hundreds Of Fish In Sight, But Scatter Every Cast

Recommended Posts

Just saw an interesting post from B.A.S.S on Facebook and thought it would be a great topic to discuss. Here is the post.

B.A.S.S. Facebook fan (name removed) needs your insight. Can you help?

He was fishing at a large, local farm pond, and thousands of largemouth, bluegill and other fish were schooling together around the bank. Every cast scared them the other direction. Why was this happening?

So what would you do to catch these fish?

Fish at night. They could see him . They related the noise from his cast as danger because of that. I'd fish at night with a hula popper it should work great

Use a finest style rig and cast roughly parallel from the bank and make sure he cast pass the school. Wait like 5minute for the school to recover back and then slowly finest it back.

yep and it would be like a competition to see which fish would get it first

Fish worms in clear water and see it lots of time where 6-7 bass head towards the worm but the one that swims the fastest (usually the small one :( ) get the worm. that might be why the others are bigger

I have a pond nearby like this. Typically make my cast far enough away from the water as to not spook anything, and cast to the complete other side with a senko or jig. The slow retrieve on the senko usually gets one about halfway back to me.

Cast past them with an unweighted finesse worm. Twitch it back almost like I would a rapala. Seems to get action even when live worms won't.
