Warm up? Are bass going?

7 posts in this topic

What will this warm up do to the bass? With this help the bite? Kind of screwy weather lately. First it cools down now with a few days of mid 70's the surface temp. has to be rising.

Should a guy being throwing top water baits?

I found most of mine under or near the docks today. This is very different than where I've found them the rest of the year on the particular lake I was on. They were found on deeper weedlines (10-15 ft. for this lake) up until about a week ago. A week ago they were mainly on shallow weedlines (4-6 ft. for this lake), and today in on the docks for the first time all year. Today's best went 19" and 4#, and I lost another larger one at the boat when trying to avoid hitting a dock because of the wind.

we fished all deep water today. It was a good day. Nothing big, but all 15 inch fish.

That's the spirit! I did this a few weeks ago fishing after dark. Landed a fat 22".......it's amazing how the wind seems to pick up at the most inconvenient of times. wink

I had most my luck fishing this weekend casting spinners on the windblown side of the lake over the matted down weeds. My best was a 18.5 incher. Also had a little luck draggin a frog over the tops of the green pads.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
