Weight that you use on a Texas Rig or Carolina Rig can make a
During the summer months I like to use a heavier weight to get it down fast
to the cool water and the local hang out for the bass.
In the winter I will use a lighter weight. I don't want the bait to fly by
the fish and have them ask me what was that you ran past us.
A Good Example of “Do Bass Talk to You”:
When you’re fishing a Top water bait and reeling it back to the boat
because you just saw a Bass Hog swirl the top of the water so you rush to get it in and just before you get
it to the boat, the water explodes right at the boat.
What is the Bass telling me? I want my dinner fast and other times you
might have to throw it and let it sit before moving the Bait.
The examples could go on and on. I was trying to reach a spot by the bank.
I had casted and noticed that I had a Professional Over Run (Back lash) so I was picking it out. During the
time I was working on the fishing line, my bait had slowly sank to the bottom. I guess it had sat there for
about three minutes until I got my reel back in working order and as soon as I moved the bait the bass ate
The bass was telling me that he wanted it on the bottom and not to move it
for at least a count to 50.
Listen to what the Bass tell you. They will talk to you all the time
sometimes it might be a whisper and other times they will yell at you.
Hey these fish will help you either win a tournament or catch the hog of
your lifetime and make it a fishing trip that you will never forget.
I also like to keep a log of what happens that day that would include what
the Bass told me that day.
Keep the Hooks Wet!
