  • Fish the cover for the big boys!

    Posted on May 9, 2012 by admin

    As spring turns to summer, we thought it would be a good idea to discuss fishing the cover to find those big lunkers. As the heat of the day brings much warmer water temperatures, the bass tend to seek relief.  There are two ways they seek this relief: they either 1) swim to deeper water that isn't heated by the sun or they 2) seek shelter/cover. Pulling the bass from the deep is one thing, but how do you entice them from their cover? One of the easiest ways is to use one of our weedless jig bass fishing lures and through the lure among the water cover. This cover is usually made up of lily pads, eel grass, etc. Once the weedeless jig hits the water, give it a few seconds to sink. With cover, it usually takes a few extra moments for the jig to sink to the sweet spot. Begin to slowly retreive the lure in a reel - slight jerk- sink rhythm, reel - slight jerk - sink rhythm. This allows the fishing lure to stay in the sweet spot of the fish longer and provides a better opportunity to catch that trophy lunker!

  • Summer Bass Fishing

    Posted on July 11, 2011 by admin

    As summer is in full swing, the question is often asked "Where is the best place to fish for bass?" The answer to that question depends most on when you are fishing the water body. If it is early in the morning or later in the evening (dusk), it is safe to work the perimeter. This rule especially applies if there are weeds/grass along the bank. This rule applies since most bass retreat to the shallow water (weeds and grass) along the perimeter to find food. Most food source for the bass will be in the shallow water since there is usually cover and most bugs enter from the bank. 

    During the hotter parts of the day, most bass can be found in two spots: 1) Under cover that is closer to the middle of the lake and 2) in the deeper middle of the lake (even without cover). As the water warms, most bass look for the cooler water to wait out the heat of the day. Usually, these bass can be coaxed to hit a spinnerbait or buzzbait. It will take some persistence, but as we all know, persistence pays off!

  • Buzzbaits: To Clatter or not to Clatter

    Posted on May 9, 2011 by admin

    Buzzbaits have been very successful in boating some of the best fish in the industry. Anyone who has thrown buzzbaits for any length of time will confirm the efficacy of these wonderful baits. However, any serious discussion about buzzbaits often turns on the question if the buzzbait should clatter or not. For a little perspective, a normal buzzbait will have one blade that makes a soft, swirling sound in the water as the large blade breaks the water. This soft, swirling noise noise attracts the attention of any bass that is in the vicinity. In contrast, a clatter blade on a buzzbait will make such a noise that it HAS to be noticed by a fish. There are two schools of thought on the clatter of the blade: 1) Some say that this clatter attracts -even if it's out of annoyance- the fish to strike. 2) States that the clatter may actually "spook" the fish and prevent it from investigating further. So who is right? I think it depends on the fish and the environment  in which the buzzblade is fished. If the conditions are poor (dark water, overcast, etc.) you may find buzzbaits with a clatter blade to be more effective than if the conditions are clear. However, in a over-fished body of water, a clatter blade may actually do more harm than good. We currently do not use a clatter blade on our Furry Fish Bait line of buzzbaits, but we have investigated the effectiveness of doing so.

    We welcome your thoughts, ideas and comments. Have you had success with clatter baits?
