Where can I find bass today?

Recommended Posts

Usual summer spots, like wood and any other structures do not produce much.
I am blind on my yak, no fish finder, no maps available. What would be best spots to find them?
Some of my lakes are deep, mostly rocky. Just a few good vegetation spots on them.

Deep basins off the weed edges would be a good place to start.

Also, invest in a sonar, you're crazy not to have one.

Mamona,

Have you looked at the Navionics app for your phone? It works great (better than the Navionics on a graph in my opinion). I think it was $20 to $30.

I did, most of my kayak lakes are not mapped.

if you want to catch smallmouth right now, you pretty much have to have electronics.

They were all 22+ fow deep and needed to see the bait dropped on their head to eat.

You need to put your polaroid's on and look in the water and make mental notes.

Where did that weed start where did disappear could you still feel weed down.

Exactly where that rock out cropping is.

And most important where you got a bite.

So the next time you go back your route to success is shorter.

I guess it depends on the lake---we caught some quite shallow in a small lake last Thur.

funny you say that cause i caught a consistent bite deep but my biggest bite of the weekend was in less than 5fow. go figure. There was another 2lber with the fish too and i caught that as well, but then got skunked the other 3 days i was fishing unless i was fishing 22+fow.

Today? every day is different! It was like 72 here Monday, then hovering around 90 Tuesday and Wednesday, and back to the lower 70's today, unstable weather can throw the bite and fish location off, deeper fish might be less affected by the changes.

    • Early fall lures for bass and pike

      I’m off this week and fishing for large and small mouth bass. Also looking for pike. Ive used various swimming/diving baits, small& large spinners, tube jigs, grubs and small spoons. Tough few days and I’ve thrown nearly everything at them.  Do you guys have preference for early fall selection, choices or techniques? the lake I’m on is tea stained. Colour suggestions?

    • Search and recovery here in Haldimand County today.

      I heard the 1st yellow Coast Guard helicopter fly by very low about 2PM. The pilot was circling our place continually, not a good sign. I was going to a friends at Featherstone Point on the west shore about 3. There were 5 OPP vehicles and about 30 folks gathered at the cottage of a very close friend that had passed a few years back. His daughter rents it as a vacation property now. When I got to Featherstone there were 3 boats west of the point. Our OPP Zodiac and 2 from our Coast Guard station

    • 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

    • 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
