Rigging up a Bass box?

Recommended Posts

I fish mostly walleyes. But being I live very close to a few awesome Bass lakes I figure I will get into bass fishing a bit. What do I need in my new box to keep me happy in the boat. I already have some spinning rods and will be picking up a couple casting rigs. What does one need?

Where to start??? I'll list my Top 5 go-to lures in no particular order....

1.) Gary Yamamoto Senkos

2.) Yamamoto 3 1/2" Tubes

3.) SPRO Dean Rojas Frog

4.) Football Jigs

5.) YUM Money Minnows

This list doesn't even scratch the surface, but I clearly like pitching plastics!!!!

Here is what a starter list might include...

Spinnerbaits - double willow and colorados in white, chart, black/blue

Swim jigs - check the swimjig thread

Football head jigs - 1/4 up to 3/4 oz.

Cranks - three sections here

a. Lipless cranks such as Rat'l traps and Strike King Red Eye Shad in chrome/black, gold/black, firetiger, sexy shad

b. Shallow diving and Stickbaits - Mann's Baby 1 Minus, Rapala DT-01 Fat, and Rapala floating along with huskys. Many different colors work well - great early season bait over young weeds

c. Deep Cranks - I love Rapala DT-6, DT-10, and DT-16. Depending on the depth you are fishing, pick one, cast it out and reel it in. Bump a rock, you better hang on tight.

Plastics - Too many to list, but a few would be soft plastic jerk baits (senko, dinger, comida) 7" curl tail worms, creature baits, tubes, craws. There are so many out there.

Terminal tackle - worm weights, split shot, 2/0 - 5/0 wide gap worm hooks, 1/0 and 2/0 Finesse Wide Gap Gamakatsu's, tube weight/rattles.

Anything else you want to know, just go jump in Deitz's boat and go for a ride.

    • Spring only for me, when Orioles first return. Mine never get hit much. 
    • Not sure if somebody put a lot of time in to make this or if it was something Arctic Cat made. I could see someone pulling this around Hay Days.Thought it was just to cool to pass up. 
    • Whatever trades they might make won’t be to make a run. It’s going to be to rebuild. I guess there’s still some interest in Dozier from a couple teams, but otherwise, we don’t have much trade value in anyone. I’m just still hoping we finish .500.
    • The popular speculation is that the lakers are taking this season “off”, and waiting until next year to sign a big name or 2, one of which could be Butler. Personally, I don’t think there’s any chance Butler re signs with the wolves (he already turned down the first offer), as long as Wiggins remains on the team! And at this point, Wiggins is untradable. 
    • do agree, like your thoughts...
    • Yeah, none of the recipes say to pre-cook the potatoes but I think I might do it next time or else just open the packets and throw the shrimp in at the end. I was surprised though that the shrimp was good and didn't seem too over cooked. I think the key is to make sure to use raw shrimp not pre-cooked.
    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
