What does everyone use for fishing the weeds for small mouth I've been using weight less senkos but wondering what other suggestions you guys have
Biggest reason I want something else then a weight less senko is so that I can actually cast with some distance I was doing a lot of topwater fishing when the wind is down and it's a blastweightless senkos with braid floro 15. plenty of enough strength for me to yank out of where I bass. Been really good the last few days. Since I switched to Senkos so far off the dock in the last three days and about a total of 9 hours have hauled in a 19, three just shy of 18, about four 17 inch range and quite a few 10-14s. all have been from light to medium weed beds. probably would go with a weedless circle hook if I dared to go into the heavy cover.
I have a shimano Compre medium heavy extra fast by far the most sensitive rod I own even more so sensitive the my Compre ml I haveI like that set up. ^
picked up a st. Croix mojo bass of cabelas.ca last week. mxf one piece for a steal compared to buying down south. used it a few times so far and I have been very impressed with it thus far in terms of set and sensitivity.
that is a nice twig! just looked it up. spinner or casting style?I have a shimano Compre medium heavy extra fast by far the most sensitive rod I own even more so sensitive the my Compre ml I have
It's not as much as techniques with the casting it's more making sure the reel is set up right and you thumb the reel at the right time this is my first season and I plan on getting more when I can afford it just my preferencethe Caenan has a nice gear ratio. I have a Stradic that has a decent retrieval speed. maybe I better watch some youtube and see what I have for casting reels packed away in the basement lol.
well I tell you what. I will take a look at what I have this weekend and send you a pm of what I have. I don't know if I can truly foresee me using them as I am stuck in my spinner ways......like an old man stuck in a 30 year old body ha. if your interested in anything I would probably part with it on the cheap.It's not as much as techniques with the casting it's more making sure the reel is set up right and you thumb the reel at the right time this is my first season and I plan on getting more when I can afford it just my preference
I've done all kinds of tweaks, never had consistant success with any of them... Those plastic frogs are not well known for hook up ability...if I'm top water, it's not usually in the thick shit, so I can throw a puppy and have no issues with losing fish... Generally in our neck of the woods, we don't have the slop and matted weed growth popular with southern largemouth style fishing...Patty, do you bend the hooks a bit from factory default? Without a barb and the hook being so close to the frog's body, it's sometimes difficult to get a good hookset with these types of lures. Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xElHkHvUk0U
