I have a 10 minute walk behind my house to the Black River, that I have heard has great Small Mouth fishing. I have never fished for bass. I was wondering If I could get some info on what to use when to fish.
I looked around the internet, but I think the best way is talking to people who fish for them regularly.
Got a great smallie lake 7 miles from home.(Green Lake) We use spinnerbaits,A jig and trailor,Mr twister spinners with double tails,Most cranks 4 inches and smaller.If there are crayfish in the waters that will be their favorite food mimmic it.My alltime favorite for any river casting is a white 1/4 oz jig with a 2 inch white tail.it works on lakes also,Dont sit, move and cover water, either casting,float fishing and trolling.I dont troll much to much fuel and I grew up trolling got tired of it.I like casting keeps me occupied.
