Banjer Minner? Cmon man… got that in the 90s and never caught nothing on that.
You wasn’t holdin yer mouth right.
So, my issue with the Ned is that is seems like a bait just for clear bottom lakes. Most of the lakes I fish have vegetation. Do not only does the Ned get hidden by the weeds on the bottom ( unless a fish grabs it on the fall) but then it also gets hung up and fouled all the time.
I don’t like the BassPro copy of them near as much. It seems BP likes to copy everyone but makes a worse product on most I’ve tried.
Something special about the Keitech. Fish have literally not let go of them they liked em so much. I had to buy a deep hook removal tool just for them. By the time I noticed a hit on the fall they were in the stomach already! Sometimes I thought I was hung up only to watch my line take off lol. They are fragile and bit pricey but have always been worth it imho. My wife was pulled down the river in a kayak by a monster 19" small mouth on one.
You can rig the bait Texas style to prevent weeds, I’ve also been looking into the tiny child rig, like a bed but with the hook on the opposite end and Texas rigged to keep it weed less.
Anyone got a Ned rig I can trade a yoyo for?
Been trying a Rattle Trap (lipless crankbait) and I had my first bass in 2 months yesterday. I lost him trying to flip it but hey… I had a bass.
The cicadas have made an early top water season for me! While not the style of fishing I’m the best at, it sure is fun getting that surface explosion.
How do you hook them?
The bass jigs I use are from screwy lewy lures. I definitely recommend checking them out.
I thought the very sudden motion and the toss back was kind of humorous. Still, this guy was very rude and stupid as all get out.
Yesterday I caught probably 6-7 baby bass on a rod and reel. First, you need to find a “fish nursery”. Somewhere you know fish lay their eggs and you know there are baby fish. Take a small net and collect mosquitofish in a bucket. You’re gonna want to use a tiny hook. Just wacky rig them… Straight through the back. You can use a bobber but I like watching the fish come up and eat it and setting the hook.
