Tips to catch Trophy Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass
Again and again over the years I have listened to many anglers and clients who express their frustration when trying to catch a bass. Most anglers do not realize that these fish have a behavior that distinguishes them from the pumpkin-bass. The main differences between a bass and a beer & # 39 are:
If you catch small mouth here in the northeast, especially in Suskehanna River in Maryland, you will find that the small bass does not adhere to the dense cover. This is even more evident in some of our reservoirs with sedimentation of water. Small mouth is much more related to sudden or rapid change in depth than they cover. When we lavim fish farmers, we all learn to brush and thick weeds, but the small mouth basey most likely will fall on a rocky ledge, quickly drops from six to twelve feet.
When fishing in the waters, such as Koninganga or in rivers like Suskahany, small lips are sometimes caught shallow, but they are rarely more than 10-20 yards from the deep water. Rapala DT Series takes a good small mouth in these areas.
Wherever we go, we see that the majority of bass fishermen to & # 39; etsya along the coastline, and because it can work with bass giant bass most of the time, when you're after a great small Gusov, turn and throw to the open water, and do not hit the shore.
Unlike largemuta, shallow mouth often grouped by size. I have found that if we caught small fish, ranging from eleven to fourteen inches, we rarely caught most in the same area. On the other hand, when we caught a small mouth, which was higher than four or five pounds, a lot of times there were several of this size, and even more swimming with them. Big bass giant bass – loners, usually found alone on the best piece of the structure, while the big bass will often learn together.
There are several things that tell you that the bass IATA is much better suited for high current than bargemut. For the first, their pointy noses and the acute angle of the fins – this is an indication that they are more suitable for the current. They often fall into the rock or tree stump and throw feed. Largemut may be somewhat to adapt to the current, but in cold water they are much more.
Finding and seizing a large small mouth – a real problem. That is why so much fun. Hopefully, after reading some of these methods, you get a better understanding of where they are going, these trophy fish and what they are looking for and, of course, is hoping to get you to the fish of a lifetime. Remember, get out early and late in the year and the elements are weighed, wonder these areas best devices we have described, and remember, most of all, you are after a completely different fish! "It's not Largemuty!"
There are thousands of small ponds, lakes and rivers that comprise the "Big Bass" from Maine to Florida. Over the past 10 years of record-keeping, and caught and released over 600 bass from 5 to 10 pounds of small waters on the East Coast and one of more than 10 pounds with Delaware, here are the tactics that I found that produce stable trophies every year.
Even in small bodies of water (1,000 hectares) is only a small part of the water, which will occupy the biggest bass. The most important features that need to pay attention – these are areas where more than two or three different types of vegetation are collected in one area. Now not all of these areas will take a big fish. The biggest fish in the lake will always be in the best possible cover and places. It will combine a variety of grass next to the stream stream at or near the beds and apartments adjacent to deep water cover.
Typically, this access to deep water will contain both a coating that is not visible without the use of a good electronics and understanding and a good understanding of what you are watching. Sometimes, especially at the bottom will be fine, but there will be a "hot spot" areas. Small holes with stones or boulders along the pull-down device, if they break the current, will be the main places for "Trophy Bass". If there is no real cover, such as rocks or trees, sometimes only the depth can provide adequate cover against light and give good results.
In small reservoirs, such as the state of Delaware and Maryland, bass are usually found in or very near the ground all year round. It does not guarantee a trophy. Rarely catch the biggest fish in the lake by conventional methods. Many big bass from five to eight pounds caught on artificial gizmos such as spinnerbaity, jigs, frogs, swimwear and zhazbaity every year, but, as a rule, these trophies are 9 pounds and above, across on the specialized techniques and live bait. . In recent years, several large bass beat big flights "Salt Water" Rat-L-Traps in the 3/4 ounce size and in different colors, worked with the fast, pumping the rod, and the tactics of swimsuits, which are used on the west coast fishermen.
Sebilny "Magic Swimmer" and a 4-inch swimsuit Tru-Tungsten really created a big bass in the north-east. I never believed that these devices will work here until I met Bill Seymantelya at the World Cup bis-bass in the lake Table Rock in Missouri in 1999, and he convinced me to try them here in the northeast. From now on, all kinds of swimwear mined many fish of trophy class.
While fishing on a real "Trophy Bass", the best bait to use – this is the main food in the water where you are fishing. It should be studied in advance by contacting the Department of Fish and Wildlife to the state in which you plan to fish, and to apply to the local shops. You should also know that it is legitimate to use in every state where you are fishing.
In most lakes, ponds and rivers in the area of Delaware, and Maryland has a golden sheen, and they do produce big bass. If they are not available, a very large wild shine – the next best choice. If you insist on using only synthetic substances, the big frog, big fly, 12 "worm, rat 3/4 to 1 1/2 ounce Rat-L-Trap or" Castaic, "" Sebil "or" Matt "Adaptations" Swimming bait "- the best choice.
Every time you go, you'll need at least two or three dozen shine, and they should be in a temperature-controlled, chemically treated bait storage, to ensure that they are alive. This is very important. Using live minaragami or blyashchami over deep structure, I love seeding them through the back, and when dreyfavanni – through the mouth. Working with cat tail, marsh reeds and heavy pads, I zacheplivayu them by the tail and let them swim in the direction of heavy cover where bass are located. Use 3/0 to 5/0 sharp, Daiichi or X-Point hooks. I like using balloons instead of reels, they work best when you have them blown up the size of a small orange. You can connect them directly to the line, and if you want to use split shot.
The best equipment – it's heavy steps 7-7 1/2 feet, a glass or E glass of high quality, such as G.Loomis or St. Croix. In recent years, many manufacturers produce rods rods and graphite composite materials, which are lighter, but stronger and produce the same characteristics of the old rods E or S. G. Loomis does good, like Kistler. I always use the line, at least seventeen pound test, and most of the time twenty or thirty pounds of monofilament. Under certain conditions, deep water or heavy sources I use forty or fifty pounds test "Stren Super Braid" or "Power-Pro line".
I suggest using a good bait for bait, but spinning in heavy action is also nice. Coils must be powerful metal coils, which have at least three ball bearings, and transmission strengths of brass or better in the transmission ratio of 5: 1: 1 or 5: 3: 1, or in a similar range. The best thing about the power and speed of these large fish. The nodes are very important. Best Node for use – this Palamar, he has a 100% knot strength. You also need to learn some other special units for tape and other superlinii.
The best time to go if you can. However, if you only have a few days, and you can choose sunny table outside conditions & # 39; I barometer should all be taken into account. They play an important role in the fishing activity. In the early spring anglers who want to dare the elements, will catch the biggest bass. These fish are on strike earlier than is the majority of people.
In Rhode Island, Vermont, Minnesota, Florida has some great small waters for trophy bass, and, of course, in California, Arizona and Texas. However, in the north-east you can not go wrong spending time in Delaware on Noxontown Lake in Middletown, Lamsa pond in the little bear, Kilense in Dover and Milton Diamond. In Suskehana river, reservoir and river descendant of Liberty in Maryland also contains huge fish, where you can catch largemuta and small mouth. These waters that are fished by methods outlined in this article will allow you to "Trophy of life."
