Archived - One Summer Morning

By Michelle Elshere

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; Castaic Swim 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."
