The time has rolled around when the cold front moves in and the bass usually go deep. What does it take to catch the hawgs that
lurk in the 20'-35' water searching for something to eat?.....
......Well…you might fish the shallows
(15'), or use a drop shot-rigged worm, or a jigging spoon.
I've seen some large bass caught on a variety of the big baits;
Bait, Osprey, Basstrix, Stocker Trout, Optimum, or A.C. Plugs.
In last week's tournament my
Dad and I found a few fish, and landed two that we had caught on Aaron's Magic Color Worms. We also did well on drop-shoting reepers. The ones we used were about 2" and they have a flat tail. It was our first time at using this rig. We found it to work rather well.
The Tourney's big fish weighing in at 10.75 was actually caught on a
12'' Castaic Soft
Bait. Other teams used many of the big baits I mentioned above, with success. Never the less we finished 22nd place out of 78 teams, "Not to bad, for cold water bassin."
