    Small hooks - Health Bass

    Fishing my goto crappie rig last week. 1/80 oz rootbeer micro jiglet on a #12 sickle jig hook. About 3-4ft under an indicator. Cast, let the rings settle, then 6''-12'' aggressive strips all the way back in. Pause for 5-10 sec between each strip. The stripped indicator causes commotion sort of...

    WTB Used 7 Weight Smallmouth Bass Streamer Line

    I'm looking for a used streamer line for my 7 weight to toss streamers to smallmouth bass. New ones go for over $80, and I just don't want to invest that much in something I'll use once or twice a year. It'll go on a 10' Winston Ibis. Thanks.

    throat pumping a bass

    I have been upping my stillwater game lately for trout. It has been real helpful to throat pump the trout to see what they are feeding on. I was on a put and take lake that is supposed to be trout only but the midnight bucket brigade struck and left some bass. I caught one and decided to throat...

    Ok, I'm pretty (ok really) inexperienced with warm water species. Last weekend I hit a local lake that I knew had some bass to give it a go. I fished poppers all day, because that's about all I understand for bass fishing: cast to the lilies, docks, and other obvious structure, and hope one...

    The Year Of The Big Bass

    Yesterday, I decided to forgo the Memorial Day crowds at the trout lakes and headed back out to the private farm lake 25 minutes from my house. The weather was warm and the sun was uninhibited by clouds. But things started slow. As usual, I first tied on a popper. I wanted to try a new...

    I am rocking a new kayak and jonesing to get out some time in the next week. I am wondering if anyone thinks Lake Washington bass fishing might be heating up. My best guess is that it is a bit early for topwater, but it has warmed up a lot over last few days. I don't need spots as I have one...

    Super complicated Dragon fly patterns

    Wiggler

    This is my LMB version of the wiggler...It's about time for some warm water action... For those not familiar with the wiggler: this fly dives and wiggles, a bit like a rapala lure when fished with long strips on a sinking line...then it pops back to the surface ( if not hammered first!)

    I love to use this fly for bass. I read that bass especially love yellow since it sticks out and gets there attention. I found that the more deer hair and the more crystal flash I use the better it looks and moves in the water.
