Re: Mid season tips?

I would not even pretend to know my way around walleyes. I usually catch them on accident while bass fishing and I would dang near rather set myself on fire than 'troll' for any species of fish so I have never truly targeted them lol Bank fishing for them would be difficult, not impossible, but toug...

Re: Mid season tips?

I'll be at the Potholes around the 27th as I fish my way back from Pend Oreille County / Spokane area lakes. I always enjoy a trip east! Was up north this past week and the magic depth for smallies was twelve feet. Cover was wood, rocks or weed edges, baits were spinnerbait, DT10 crankbait, lipless ...

Re: Mid season tips?

Smallies are scattered right now but 30 feet has been consistent with a drop shot.

Largies, target outside weed edges with Senkos.

So much depends on the type of water you're fishing?? I'm catching largemouth in a foot of water on some lakes and twenty feet on others.

Re: Bass fishing guides reccomendation

If you go to Banks in two weeks, the last thing on earth you would need is a guide [laugh] [thumbsup] lol

Check with Mardon resort at the Potholes, I'm sure they know someone. You may also try to be a non-boater in some club tournaments over there?

Good luck! :salut:

Re: Early season bassin

After the full moon this coming Wednesday we should be in business, especially with the accompanying warming trend! I have watched water temps rise from 39 to 44* on a couple of my local lakes over the past two weeks. Could be touching 50 to 52 by next Wednesday? I love this time of year, you may on...

Re: Jig Color for SMB in Lake Stevens Sno County

Just start with black and blue and lighten it up from there...green pumpkin, then pumpkinseed etc. I would recommend hula-grubs over an actual 'jig' if that makes sense? 3/8-1oz jig head and run them on a drop shot as the weight. If you want to use an actual JIG, I would recommend a mop jig as the '...

Re: Fall Bass fishing - Fake News!

I caught a largemouth on a lake up north in less than a foot of water and the algae had been so thick for so long the bass was almost white! I would expect to see a shallow bite increase over the next couple weeks.

Re: Fall Bass fishing - Fake News!

So much depends on the body of water. Small shallow featureless lakes are going to fish very different than say something the size of Lake Washington with massive structure variations. I have largemouth lakes I target in the Fall because they are shallow and vegetation filled and therefore can be a ...

Re: UPDATED 10.7.18 My 39/39 Challenge has ended.

Hopefully?! I won't really get to it until November-ish and not sure how long it will take? Would be nice to have it ready by next Spring but will have to see how things unfold? I would be more than happy to send you a copy when it's complete!

MILES???? Lost track but I know in one four week span it was over 3,000! What surprised me was how distracted I became, how many techniques I left hanging and how long it actually took. Almost too much to mention in this answer....need to think. Ozette Lake, Wahkiakum and Pend Oreille Counties are a...

Re: UPDATED 10.7.18 My 39/39 Challenge has ended.

Well, I'm going to call it. Island County is the black hole of bass fishing lol. I got a couple cranking a drop off on Deer Lake yesterday but the biggest only went 0.7 pounds. Got skunked on Cranberry, biggest strike was maybe a half pounder?! I may hit it again next Spring just to make the catch "...
