In 2004, I fished more lily pads than in the past? Why? Well, since i caught fish inside them. I most likely caught over 100 fish within the lily pads this season alone. Two were over 5 pounds and something over 6 pounds. What exactly did I actually do different this season?
I am glad you requested……I made use of a lure known as the scum frog, eco-friendly and white-colored, in addition I fished it different than in the past. The thing is, I did previously go slow, I am talking about real slow, my thought process was that although the bass is really a fast swimmer, he’d have a problem doing the lure with the pads, basically retrieved it fast. Not just that, but, I needed to place it in the face considerably longer by going slow on my small retrieve.
Well, i then viewed this person and that he was running it with the lily pads almost as quickly as any buzz bait I’ve come across used. I had been utilizing the same lure except slow. The end result? Well, he was getting strikes, I am talking about plenty of strikes, I had been getting none. So, I returned within the same area I simply fished and you know what? Yep, I started getting strikes, however i didn’t have them because the lure would work through the fish. I figured maybe I ought to compromise, so, I slowed lower my retrieve only a hair and bingo, I began catching fish. That’s the way I made use of the scum frog throughout the fishing season. Fast, but not really fast like a buzz bait, once they would hit or miss I’d steer clear of the bait and merely twitch it a couple of occasions. It was one of my favorite fishing years in over 40 of fishing for bass, all for this reason new retrieve.
As Mikey states “Check it out you may enjoy it”.
Charles E. White-colored has fished for nearly half a century for bass from California to Florida. In the lifetime, it’s believed he has caught over 6,000 bass. His greatest bass is really a 12 pound 14 ounce that hangs on his wall in the office.
