  • Amateur getting into bass fishing, any advice appreciated

    Posted by manchick on August 6, 2022 at 4:58 am

    I’ve been having a blast this summer catching bass, I’ve been a lifelong bait and bobber guy until this year. I tried my hand with wacky senkos with some succes, as well as a couple hits on a chrome blue back rattle trap. My yellow and white chatter bait hasn’t been very successful so far though. Any suggestions for pond or lake shore fishing?

    The best tip I ever got as an amateur bass fisherman was how to properly rig and use a weedless Texas rigged senko with and without weight.

    Don’t be afraid to experiment with stuff. Check out YouTube videos for how-to vids on different rigs. Learn to throw a shaky head with a trick worm. It produces fish, and with 3/16 or 1/4 oz. weight will work fine in deeper water where a senko may not be very practical. And get a couple square bill crankbaits. I’ve caught fish all year round, in all kinds of water and weather with them.

    Whopper plopper and swim jig with a tail of your choice. Best of luck.

    I’m in the same boat with catching the bass bug. I know I’m beating a dead horse here but the weedless Texas thing. Especially weightless. I always start with a weightless creature style something. Slow lazy retrieve with little pops here and there.

    Big also. Colors lines and tree line cover. Live them learn them love them. Whenever you can cast up the bank not out from the bank

    small #2 size finesse dropshot hook and a 1/8th dropshot weight, a 4.5 inch straight tail roboworm. check out a video on how to tie the hook on with a palomar knot, then with point facing upward, put the tag end through the eye once more so the hook ‘stands up’ and then your sinker on the bottom of the tag/leader, about 8-12 inches. it works so well
