Nice Looking BASS(pics)

All the fish were sitting in deep deep water during the past front over the weekend and if u were fishing shallow i would try useing topwater. What worked for me was anykind of green brushhogs texas rigged on 4lb floro in 35 to 45 feet of water. I personally didnt try using topwater but people that i talked to said its working good in the morning and evenings. I fished mostly points that extended into the main lake and fished on the opposite side the sun was facing and fished slowwwww. Also my friends first time fishing and he caught a pretty solid fish in the brushhog while we were eating lunch and the lure was just sitting in the water. Its what told me to slow down the presentation and let it sit in the strike zone longer.

    • Here's number 3 for the year! Not a bad find for a couple hours after work.  It was so fresh it still had wet blood on the base.
    • East wind is the worst...!! Bad juju. Always means a storm. Gonna have an East one tomorrow......and my barometer is already headin' down, in time for the 6-8" of big snow tomorrow. Watch it plummet before a big summer storm, or rise into the 30's on those warming, clear days. I've always watched the winds and barometer since I was a kid (got into the weather thing in "science class") , you can do better yourself than the forecasters do. It's easy and fun, IMO. Some fun facts:   http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2010/10/27/lowest-barometer-reading-ever-in-minnesota/
    • I guess I never associated a north wind wind lower pressure. Or a south wind with higher pressure.  Learn something new everyday
    • I watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg or mb; millibars) or when it swings up past 30.0 mb. That's my reference for "highs" or "lows" on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. I  love my old dial Aneroid barometer.  They last forever, too.  Mines kicking about 35 years... (That's not mine, pic is for low and high reference...)    
    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting?
