bass opener 2009

Recommended Posts

Opener was a great day , although I was alone with pikeie up north and Mike ( younger son) thinking 4:30 am was wayyy to early.

paid off though , first at the launch and first at my traditional first stop on opening day .



nice sunrise , always amazing to see how fast it rises



fist few casts and a nice little bass , followed by a second one one cast later ,Fun in the reeds and weeds. then the crowd arrived and the fish seemed to turn off.

tried a couple of more spots with no luck .



mid morning before the next fish then ..wow almost non stop for better part of an hour ,total of 10 smallies all on perch cranks and tubes . it was a blast .Lost a nice one at the boat when my mono leader snapped.


most fish on opener that I can remember.


Next week Mike and I tried another fav spot and although the numbers weren't as high the quality was there .Nice to be out Mike as well


Mike with a nice largie caught on weightless senkos .


Big fish of the day at 19" . broke in my $19 Quantum rod nicely ( thanks Cudz) Belly weighted senko


5 fish in total for the day , bit damp but no complaints

    • Bass are missing the frog?

      Hi there, Just wondering if any of you are having this problem, or if this is just a common thing, It's been perfect frog fishing weather here lately so i decided to tie on a frog, i had never caught a bass on a topwater frog before, so casted it out there over by a rocky wall with some vegetation just walking it back to the bank, about 10 casts in or so BAM! something came up and smacked it, the adrenalin hit me, i set the hook, and reeled in a nice little pickerel, i was so happy. But to

    • Can bass get familiar with the same topwater frog.

      Hey there,   Lately I have been throwing alot of topwater frogs, i don't have a boat so i fish this spot very often, and i was wondering if they can get accustomed to seeing the same frog over and over knowing that it's a lure. Because when i started to fish topwater at this spot the fish would just come up and kill the thing over and over, now i can hardly get a blowup. Just wondering if they do that or if any of you have had this happen. I was thinking of getting a different type of

    • Getting that big bass?

      Hi all. I have a friend with a cottage on a private lake just north of Bancroft. It's a small lake full of largemouth and every year he sends out a pic of his big catch which looks to be around 7lbs. I only get up there once a year and have good success on senko's and scum frog's in the morning, however these have been more in the 3-4lb range. I'm hoping to target one of the trophy size fish, so my question is.....what lure and technique do you suggest for that big bass? I went to Cabela's and t

      Ventured out with a friend for some Lake Erie smallmouth bass recently. We didn't manage to get into any bigger ones but did have countless smaller bass and some huge sheepshead. Fun summer day all in all. Enjoy the video. Subscribe and share!
