Deep water bassin

Recommended Posts

I need some help. I've got the shallow thang down, but summer deep bassin kicks my arse every year. I've never gotten to do deepwater much if at all for bass. I keep hearing about good 3-4 lbs bass during summer deepwater fishing. What am I looking for? How do I approach it? How do I fish it? Basically I need a 101 lesson. I've read mags, books and head out to try and nothing but dinkers, eventually end up going back shallow for action.

I do best on deep weedlines that have a sharp end to the weeds, rather than a slowly dissapating weedline, with deeper water nearby, and preferably a change in bottom content. The one thing is they form schools and once you find one, not uncommon to land several of the same size, then it might be 200 yards of little action and then you might run into another school. I like to throw a DT series crank relevant to the depth of the weedline to locate fish, then slow down with a dropshot or jigworm, or any other finesse style approach.

It can be humbling, but way worth the time. Nothing better than sticking back to back to back 4 or 5 pounders.

    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
