The beauty of the Senko is in it’s simplicity

Yamamoto Senko worms, Reviewed. The Yamamoto Senko may just look like a thick round plastic worm but the fall rate created from the large amount of salt impregnated drives fish mad

When rigged weightless the Yamamoto Senko falls horizontally with a seductive side to side tail action

The Yamamoto Senko has quickly become a favorite with anglers all over the world

Try rigging this bait Wacky style or Texas rigged and experience the versatility the Yamamoto Senko provides

Also, some anglers are having great success rigging the bait on a football head jig which presents a more ‘vertical’ look than when rigged weightless.

The Yamamoto Senko is available in dozens of colors;

My favorite colors are, in order of effectiveness are;

My favorite way to rig is centered ‘Wacky Style’, weightless or with a light weighted 02 or 03 hook only.

Or, Texas Style Rigged, sometimes they want it just rigged the standard ‘Tex posed’ style. Yamamoto Senko worms, Reviewed

I fish my Senko worms on 10 to 12 lb floro carbon, on a 6.5 foot light spinning reel/rod combo and make sure my drag is set just right.

 

Go out and fish this when the fish aren’t exactly chasing baits and you’ll be able to put some keepers in the boat.

How To Catch A 10-Pound Plus Bass

How To Catch A 10-Pound Plus Bass

By Bill Miller, Phd

catch big largemouth bass

No one, even the best professional bass anglers, can tell you a specific formula for catching a really huge bass. I can’t either, but what I can do is give you some sound advice that will tip the odds in your favor.
First, it is essential that you fish where bass grow to a tremendous size. Lakes like Fork (Texas), Sam Rayburn (Texas), Lake Amistad (Texas), Lake Falcon (Texas), Eufaula (Georgia, Alabama) Seminole (Florida), Toledo Bend, Caney (Louisiana) and the phosphate pit lakes in Florida and southern California all hold bass of true trophy size.

Of course I didn’t mention all of the lakes known for producing 10-pound plus bass.

There are a large number of lakes in other states that have huge bass. It doesn’t even have to be a lake to contain a monster wall-hanger. Small stock ponds produce trophies, too. It does make it easier if you fish takes that have Florida strain largemouth in them. As real estate people are fond of saying, “Location, location, location!”
The absolute surefire way of increasing your chances in any place is to fish in the spring. Fish early, stay with it, fish hard, wisely and use big-bass lures. The single most important tip of all is to fish February through May. If you look at all the state records you will find most of the trophy bass were caught during these months.
The reason for the record class trophy catches can be explained by thinking biologically. A huge fish, that somehow escaped capture until it reaches trophy size, becomes vulnerable when the mating urge hits.
A spinning centrifuge sends particles to the outside and in a similar fashion the spawning urge sends bass in large numbers to the shallows. Bass behavior during spring is triggered primarily by the angle of light, although weather conditions, temperature of the water, bottom composition and even the area of the lake affect pre-spawn movements. As the water warms and the angle of the sun moves up in the Northern Hemisphere, hormones are released within the fish which causes a general movement toward the spawning grounds.
Many believe as the weather temperature reaches 60 degrees the females will begin to move, but it is the increasing angle of light that triggers the hormonal surge that initiates pre-spawning movement.
The environmental force that drives the will to reproduce in most animals is the angle of sunlight. For instance, deer in Texas have a longer breeding season than those in Michigan do. It is nature’s way of ensuring that the young will be delivered during a time in which the food source is most abundant.
In an aquatic environment, bass usually spawn first. Prey species starting with microorganisms to bream and shad begin to reproduce afterwards, thus ensuring an adequate, food supply for the young predators.
Successful reproductive activity, regardless of the species, depends on massive production in the aquatic environment. A large female may deposit 5,000 to 10,000 eggs in a male’s nest and she may not be the only female that spawns in that nest. Regardless of how many eggs are deposited, 10 percent or less of the fry will survive to reach fingerling size. Of these only a few live long enough to reach adulthood. Since so few reach adulthood, one can easily see that even fewer reach true trophy size. This is one of the reasons for a catch and release policy. If you keep five- to eight-pounders, they will not grow to 10 plus.
These fish will move into shallow protected areas, which benefit from the warmth of penetrating sunlight. Sunlight and warmth are vital to the incubation of eggs and a successful hatch of fry. Once water reaches a sustained temperature of 62 to 65 degrees, most bass will begin to spawn. After all, the family name Centrarachidae means sunfish.
One should not expect all bass in the lake’s population to spawn at the same time. Even within a particular lake, there will be a part of the bass population that will spawn before others in different areas. However, the peak spawning activity generally occurs during a period of about a week, during the full moon in the month in which the water temperature reaches the optimum level.
With only a few trophy size bass in a particular lake one should fish often, hard, and wisely in the most vulnerable time. That time is during pre-spawn and spawn, when hormones override caution and expose the trophy fish to the shallow-water angler.
There are a few lures that are true “big fish” lures. Most professional anglers will acknowledge the jig and pig as a lure that will consistently produce large fish. Buzzbaits and large spinnerbaits also account for a good number of spring trophies.
Later on, or on real warming periods, a Zara Spook or the new Spit ‘N’ Image worked over a bedding bass may provoke a strike. Soft plastic lizards, tube lures and other small soft plastic lures fished on light spinning gear with 10-pound test line or smaller are used by successful anglers every year on clear lakes to take trophy class bass. With the newer smoother drags on reels and better rods, an educated angler can land much larger bass than the line pound test indicates.
Other than fishing where there are 10-pound plus bass, using good equipment during the major pre-spawn and spawning times, there is still the element of luck.
Some anglers, even those that are much more experienced than I am, don’t believe taking a trophy is a matter of luck. It may not be, but if a blind hog roots long enough it will find an acorn. An accident of fate determines the size of the acorn.
Catching the bass is one thing. Killing it is another. Most fishing biologist will tell you huge bass are like diamonds. However, some say no harm occurs from fishing the beds during the spawn. But to disrupt the spawn by keeping large female bass confined and stressed in a live well is not a good way, in my opinion, to keep superior genes in the population. Measure the girth, length, photograph it and release her promptly and you will be secure in the knowledge that you have done something that most anglers can only dream about.

Savage Gear – 3D Rattling Craw

Shake, rattle, and roll! The Savage Gear 3D Rattling Craw does all three and is a super highly detailed lure to boot. The action on the claws is great, so on the fall and when popping it up you have great "alive" action. But, if you want to slow down and finesse it the 3D scanned lure has all the appendages and details that make it look very similar to the real deal. As with so many of my favorite lures it excels at doing more than one thing. Oh…and the kicker, each one has a rattle tucked inside of it to add auditory stimulation to the mix. Kudos for Savage Gear for perfecting the ubiquitous craw jig trailer.

Megabass Pop Max

Is the the perfect topwater popper? All Megabass lures carry a high price tag and I personally don't feel it is justified on many. However, if you have ever wanted a truly beautiful lure that also employs some clever engineering the Pop Max excels and should be on your short list. It is superb not only in its design and look, but also in its action and performance. In this video I go into detail on all elements of the lure. In short, I think it is fantastic. The "high" price it carries can be justified by its superb realism and distinct actions that can be brought about by the angler. I recommend if you ever wanted to dabble in the Megabass brand to start with the Pop Max.

Crushing Big Bass on Topwater Lures

This week, Craig and I head out for a day of topwater action. We ended catching a lot of fish on hollow bodied frogs. To get them out away from the thick cover we used 7'1" and 7'2" heavy action rods with 50lb power pro super slick braided line. The average fish was around 4lbs and we got to experience to great blow ups on our baits! The weather was front conditions with rain early followed by temperatures dropping about 10-15 degrees. This turned the fish on and made a great day on the water with my buddy Craig.

Acoustic tags can provide information about fish populations. For example, presence/absence. If detections are uniformly spaced to a high level of precision, these detections can assess fish behavior. Example behaviors include: Moving towards and away Holding Defecation Downstream migration Fish passage Searching Predator avoidance This presentation illustrates examples of how fish are being monitored in 2D and 3D using acoustic tag technology to improve fisheries management along
