Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I fish a spot were there are lots of weeds and usually fish topwater to avoid the weeds, is there any thing i can fish around weeds in fall when the fish aren't biting topwater.

 

Thanks.

My 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice is a topwater and if I have to go to 4 I'll go home. lol

How thick are the weeds?

Weedless spoons.

Spinners with the treble removed for a single hook, I use a  trailer to cover the hook point.

A jighead can be rigged weedless as well.

Spinnerbaits go through weeds surprisingly well.  As so spoons like a Johnson Silver minnow.

Thanks all, i guess i sort of wrote it wrong saying there are weeds, there are some weeds but mostly just that green slimy algae stuff, it grows on the bottom, it grows on the top and everything in between. I just googled it, it's called Blue- Green algae, iv'e tried plastic worms and such but it just collects all sorts of it. But the fish love it, they get right down and in the stuff. Really not sure what i will do come fall when the fish aren't very aggressive, is there any other kind of topwater lure thats  a bit more finesse ?

 

Thanks

Isn't Blue-Green algae toxic?  If that is what it is; you may not want to fish there.

Lots of lures, the fisherman usually creates most of the action, it's pretty easy tp tone it down. If you can cast - flip - pitch to pockets in the pads or weeds just twitching a floating rapala can work.

Try a Z-Man project z weedless chatterbait, these do very well. Once the weeds go down a bit in the fall, fish this right over top. You can straight retrieve it or give it some rips like a jerkbait. The best trailer I've found is a Keitech swing impact fat 4.3 inch. As bass tear it up you can trim a little off the head and keep making it shorter, allowing re-use of the same trailer. 

White is always a good option for colour, black/blue if you fish chocolate milk.

    • How long do you fish the lily pads

      I've been having a blast using a moss boss in the pads. It is pretty weedless and you can easily skitter it over the pads. My hook up rate is well below 50%, but the blow ups are so much fun, I don't really care. Best bass so far has been a 19" fat largie. How late in the year have you successfully fished the pads? Do they lose oxygen like other weedy areas?

    • You can't get here from there

      Well you can but it's a trip lol. Couldn't do it without my son for a guide, he does all the heavy stuff (I use to take him fishing, now he takes me )😊. Left my son's place early Sunday morning on our ATVs with all our gear for a 15 km trip, beautiful day light wind, it had rained the night before so trails were nice for riding (not too much dust) .  This is one of countless little back lakes we like to fish, because it's kind of out of the way not many people bother with it.. We usual

    • 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

    • Boat that can be transported on top of vehicle

      A few weeks ago I was offloading gear at the dock and two guys pulled up in a Mazda CX-5 with a small fishing boat on top of the vehicle. It was for sure not a canoe or any of the typical boats I have seen on a vehicle. I have no idea what size of motor they had on it but i was curious what type of fishing boat this may be, and what options exist for boats that can be transported on top of a vehicle. Wish i took a pic. Appreciate any advice.
