I'm getting ready to start learning. I can cast and what not, but I don't know much if anything about lines, lures, etc. I have been given a setup via e-mail from an expert fisherman I know. We can catch bass right off the pier up north. Come on up labor day weekend and do some fishing if you want.
Here is what I was given:
thats a nice starter for small pan fish."blue gill,sun fish, etc" i have been doing the artificial thing before i put all the stuff away, nowback into it, plus i am Texas rigging big time or rigged with no weight "working fake worms" and they pound the shit out if them its kick ass.
sunny days= spinner
cloudy and shallow water=popper
pissing off and catch a territorial bass=buzz bait
real heavy vegetation= frogs
bla bla bla most of the time, if something doesnt work, change it up. but the list above works good for me.
or fuck it lazy man 6 pack of beer.
silver minnows on a hook, 4 foot of line with a floater.
pound beer and pound the large mouth bass that nails the minnow.
