By Steve VonBrandt
All experienced anglers know that on specific bodies of water, there are always certain spots that produce the best bass year after year. When you have fished your best spot, and it is unproductive, do you move to another spot, or stay there hoping for the bass that you know are there to start hitting?

In my 35 years of experience, I have found that you should leave a reliable spot only after you have tried your best, with a variety of time proven baits. This has been proven to me over and over, on a variety of Lakes and Rivers in the country. More times than I can remember, we came right in behind another angler and caught bass right out of the area that they just worked with only one bait, and moved on.

The top places to catch bass on almost any lake in the country are Docks, Sloping Gravel/Sand Points, Shoreline Drop-offs, and Dense Cover near deep water.

The dense cover such as hyacinth, milfoil, Hydrilla, different varieties of pads, reeds and other grasses, are one of the best areas to big bass. The drop-offs with rocky, sandy, and/or gravel points running into deeper water, with some other structure mixed in at the ends of the points, seems best, and of course boat docks and piers. Never overlook the docks and piers. We have had many a slow day on the Sassafras and Nanticoke, only to switch lures and presentations, in the marinas and boat docks, and catch that one kicker fish or sometimes the biggest bass of the day.

If you check most any pro bass fisherman's outfits, you will usually see these 5 lures tied on, (provided you can get a look at them). They will be a buzzbait, a crankbait, a spinnerbait, a Carolina and/or Drop-Shot rig, and a Jig. There will be many other rods, and other lures ready to use but, these are the mainstay of baits for most any situation in the country. The following strategies should help you thoroughly cover the water from top to bottom.

DROP-OFF SHORES / GRAVEL POINTS: I always look at the way the land around the lake goes into the water. That land usually continues out into the water the same way. Move to within about 25-35 feet from shore, and cast directly to the area with a buzzbait, cutting the water like a piece of pie, over and over, at different speeds and angles. Next, cast the spinnerbait against the shore and work the area at different depths and speeds. Then do the same thing with the crankbait. I use a deep diver for this so it can get down quickly and bounce off rocks, sand, stumps, on the bottom, or mid-depth. I then cast the same area with a Carolina rig, with a French Fry worm, a cut-tail worm, or a Senko. I change boat positions often to work this and the other baits at many angles to the drop-off shore. I stair-step the jig down any rock ledges, and crawl/hop it down the edge of the point where it meets deeper water. I use a smaller Terminator jig for this. On the Gravel/Sandy points, I do the same thing as when I'm Drop-off shores. The color of the water should dictate what color baits to use. If the water is muddy, use louder baits, in black,black/red, Black/Brown combinations; if the water is clear, I pick more natural colors for the baits, and a less noisy model.

DENSE COVER: This is my favorite type of cover to work. First I cast a buzzbait wherever possible, working it in and out of cover at varies angles and retrieves. When the water is really calm, I throw a real small buzzbait that works very slowly on the surface. I have clear skirts, pearl skirts, and other subtle natural colors that I can easily switch. I then throw the spinnerbait, working it in and out of the pockets in the pads, making it turn quickly, then flutter down, and even bulge the surface. I work it a variety of ways until the bass dictate what they want to me. When in the River I make sure I bump into every limb of the tree with the bait at every angle before going to the next bait. If they don't hit a Fat bodied crankbait around the edges, or dead sticked in the open pockets, then I switch to a Tournament Frog, or Rat, and work this in a variety of conventional and unconventional ways. If this is a good area, and I don't get any hits with these baits, then I would throw the Carolina rig and the jig around the edges of the cover, and right into any pockets in the cover.

DOCKS: These areas always produced for us on sunny days, whether it was in the river or a lake, especially in the summer and early fall. You should approach the docks quietly, and start to work them from farther away with each lure type. Only when they don't hit these other baits first, should you then move in with the jig and Senko, and flip each piling on the dock, then skip the Senko under the dock as far as possible. There are many more tactics you could try if you aren't getting any takers from your best spots, but these are the basics that you should practice every time you go to get into the habit of doing these things. It will become second nature, and you will notice the results in your local or club tournament wins, or your recreational fishing alike.

Report Description: Capt. George Landrum

Fly Hooker Sportfishing


WEATHER: Wind, wind and more wind. That pretty much summed it up for us this week on the weather front as every day the wind blew from the NNW to the SSW at between 10 and 20 knots. We did have a few mornings when it seemed that it had died off, but when you poked your nose around the corner to try the Pacific side, you go smacked in the face with the cold wind. Some mornings on the Pacific side the temperature was in the high 50’s. In town our daytime highs were in the mid to high 80’s while our night time lows were around 60 degrees. No rain at all but we did have partly cloudy skies on Sunday morning.

WATER: On the Pacific side this week we had very cold water, at places it was as cold as 58 degrees right along the shore. Out around the Golden Gate and San Jaime Banks the water warmed to 67 degrees. Due south of the cape the water was cold at 66 degrees until 14 miles out then it warmed to 68 degrees. On the Cortez side of the cape we had a band of warmer 72 to 76 degree water along the shore up to the Punta Gorda area, and this band extended from just along the beach here in Cabo to across the outer Gorda Banks and the Punta Gorda region. Outside the band of warmer water the temps dropped to 64-65 degrees and went out at least 20 miles. There was no really well defined temperature break as the wind and currents moved the water around, blending the temperatures and the colors. We had strongly colored green water to the south and on the Pacific side.

BAIT: Back to getting Mackerel at the usual $2 per bait and there were some Sardinas early in the week at San Jose for $20 a bucket.


BILLFISH: Just as the report stated last week, the bite for Striped Marlin has died off since the water cooled off so much. The few fish that were caught this week were mostly from the warm water areas up around Punta Gorda. There were a few fish found outside to the south in the slightly warmer water 14 miles out, but they were few and far between, and the water was rough as well. There were Swordfish found again this week and I did hear of a private boat that got two of them on Friday.

YELLOWFIN TUNA: Scattered football size Yellowfin to 15 pounds and a few fish in the 25-30 pound class were pretty much it for the boats this week. The fish were not concentrated in any one particular area and a lot of them were caught while trolling in the blind. Finding porpoise did not mean you were going to get into the Tuna this week, there were a lot of pods of porpoise that were fishless.

DORADO: Just like last week. I think I saw a total of 10 Dorado flags this week, and that should say it all. Wait for warmer water.

WAHOO: I saw a few Wahoo flags this week but I am not sure they were for fish caught this week or not. I did not hear of any fish caught; just saw a few flags flying on the boats.

INSHORE: Rough water on the Pacific side of the Cape made most of the boats concentrate on the area from the lighthouse and around to the arch, plus along the beach on the Cortez side of the Cape. There were still Sierra being caught and some of them were very nice sized, from 6-10 pounds. One positive note was that the cold water brought the Yellowtail with it. The bite turned on fairly well in the middle of the week with fish being found from the lighthouse to Gray Rock. Live bait dropped deep and iron worked deep caught the most fish, but trolling plugs along the coast in 60-100 feet of water worked well also. There were Roosterfish caught on the Cortez side, fish to 40 pounds were reported both from Pangas and from the beach. Red Snapper were biting as well if you could get a live bait right into the rocks and not get snagged.

NOTES: Once again Swordfish have the angler’s attention. I expect a few more fish to be caught this week before the water warms and turns blue again. Meanwhile the off shore action is pretty sorry; the only bright spot this week was the inshore fishery with Yellowtail and Snapper taking the spotlight. It sure is strange to have April conditions at the beginning of June! Or fingers are again crossed (seems like we never get them uncrossed for one reason or another) that the water warms up and brings along the Tuna, Wahoo, Dorado and Marlin! This weeks report was written to the music of Deep Purple on their 1972 release “Machine Head”. Until next week, Tight Lines!
