There are those who say the next world record size spotted bass just might come from California’s Lake Shasta.

I don’t find this hard to believe.  Neither does the pair of veteran Pacific Northwest plug pitchers I told you about in my previous column.  Bruce Holt and Renaud Pelletier went down there last January and put more than a hundred of those interesting fish in the boat.

Big monster crappie are usually caught during prespawn and spawn. Prespawn is a time when fish are preparing for the spawning ritual but temperatures and conditions are not yet perfect. It’s also important to note that not all crappie spawn at the same time. Therefore, prespawn activity can be spread for a much longer time frame than once thought.

Lou Feranti didn’t even want to be fishing Bullard’s Bar the day he caught the current world-record 11.20-pound spotted bass. “I’d had bad experiences on that lake in the past and I honestly didn’t want to go back,” he admitted. Luckily, his fishing partner, Joe Inama, talked him into fishing the Great Basin Bassers event last February 21st, as he actually caught the record-breaker during the tournament.

The Midasu Lipless Crank - Prepare Yourself for Disruption

The newest addition to Yamamoto’s hard bait lineup is the new Midasu lipless crankbait. Midasu means “to disturb or disrupt” in Japanese. The goal of lipless crankbaits has always been to wake up lethargic bass.  Tie one on and you’ll see that the Midasu does just that.

A few characteristics that set the Midasu apart from the fleet of lipless baits on the market today is the sound the bait makes in the water and the vibration it produces. The Midasu has a more subtle rattle to it than many of the other lipless baits on the market today. In my opinion, the sound the Midasu makes mimics baitfish more closely than its louder counterparts. Next time you see baitfish activity, try to get close and pay attention to the sounds they’re making. You’ll likely notice faint flickers and pops that are reminiscent of someone snapping their fingers. The noise the Midasu emits in the water is similar to this.

Hite's Bites - Strategies for Finicky Bedfish

E-mail Print PDF

Spring can be an exciting time for bass fishermen because this is the season when we have our best access to the biggest fish of the year. With fish moving up, or getting ready to move up, throughout much of the southern states, anglers are getting ready to match wits with wily bass and that’s very often a pretty challenging deal.

It’s great when you spot a big bass on the bed, make a couple of pitches and catch her. But a lot of times, we find these fish extremely spooky. They’re easily disturbed and they’ll run away from the bed when they feel uncomfortable.
