Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: Crankbait Tactics for Huge Prespawn Bass
By Steve VonBrandt
One of the most effective ways to catch huge prespawn bass in lakes and rivers are Lipless crankbaits. These baits are especially effective when the water temperature is between 49 and 58 degrees, especially in stained or muddy water in lakes and ponds, but it also works in the rivers also. Some of the techniques outlined below will help you catch bigger bass all over the country in the early spring starting in march, and peaking in April.

'TYPES OF BAITS

There are are variety of lipless crankbaits on the market that catch bass, but in the spring, in most lakes and ponds, in the Northeast, the Rat-L-Trap by bill Lewis Lures, the Rattlin' Rapala, and the Viva Vibe, are some of the best. All lipless crankbaits have a different sound. Some are much louder than others, and will produce when some other quieter baits won't. At other times, the quitter rattling baits will produce more. You just have to experiment with several baits until you find the ones that are producing best in the particular body of water you're fishing in. Sometimes the same baits, in the same size, by the same company, make slightly different sounds, that can be better than the other, Experimentation is the only way to find which bait works the best. Some baits won't run as true at different speeds, and they turn sideways a little more than others, so you just have to watch them in the water, and find the best ones. The hooks should always be changed to a premium hook system such as Gamakatsu or Owner or Eagle Claw Premium. There are many other great hooks, but I prefer these. Most of your lipless crankbaits should be used in a 1/4 to 1/2 ounce size, but recently, bigger bass in the Northeast and in Florida have hit the bigger Slat Water Traps in the 3/4 to 1 ounce sizes.

COLORS OF BAITS

The best colors for the spring, especially if you have a lot of Crawfish in the lake, are red, red/orange, and brownish/orange. Some have spots on them and these are very effective. The standard Chrome, and Chrome with a blue back, and Chrome and Red, have worked especially well for the larger bass. If the water is extremely stained to muddy, we forund that the red, and the chartruese/brown combinations work well in this kind of situation also. If you have a lot of bluegill in the area, and less crawfish or shad, then the blugill/Suncracker patterns work very well. The primary forage in the lakes are the best patterns, unless you know that many anglers are aware of this, and are using these colors also. Then switching to unconventional patterns can fool some of the wary bigger bass.

'TECHNIQUES

Most people just cast the baits out and reel them straight in. While this will always catch some bass, there are more specialized methods that trigger strikes from the bigger bass. Cast the Rat-L-Traps out, and depending on the depth of the water, count them down to the level of the fish before starting the retrieve, and if it is a sandy and/or gravel/rocky type of bottom, let them sink to the bottom, then slowly raise the tip of the rod till you feel the lure vibrating, reeling the slack up a little slowly, then lower the rod tip, and do it again. Many times they will hit as it is on the bottom, and first starts to be lifted up. If these techniques don't work in a few hours, use a slight pumping action of the rod as you reel, keeping contact with the bait. If it hits a rock, weeds, or other structure, hesitate a second, and then rip it off quickly, and reel it in with a steady retrieve. You can also yo-yo the bait similar to a spoon or spinnerbait in deeper water near points and drop-offs, which can be extremely effective in colder water or on inactive fish that are suspended. Most of the time in water below 58 degrees they hit very mushy, like grass or leaves, or even like a stick is on it, but most of the time it is a bass. As they get close to the boat they will see you and make a dash for the trolling motor, and down to deeper water, sometimes even breaking the surface to throw the lure. They bass have to played very carefully as lipless crankbaits come out of the bass's mouth much more easily than you might imagine. Most of the bass will be in the shallower water off the flats, near deeper water, rip-raps, if available, or any place where there is baitfish and or cover near the North shore or bay, close to food sources, near where they are going to spawn.

EQUIPMENT

I like to use sinning gear for the smaller 1/4 ounce baits, and I use baitcast gear for the larger 3/4 to 1 1/2 ounce baits. I usually use a 7 foot spinning rod in med action so as not to pull the bait from their mouths, usually a S- Glass rod, or a G.Loomis Cranking Rod. In the baitcasters, I use a 7 foot, med to Med/Heavy rod, with a high speed reel, but many people prefer a good reel in a 5:0:1 or 5:3:1 gear ration. I always use Spiderline super mono in 10-12 pound test, but 8 pound test is preferred by many. Stren is a also a good line for this. Fan cast the baits in as many directions as possible in the prime areas such as the mouths of the back bays with creeks, where grasses and riprap, are on a harder bottom, and you will start picking up some of these monsters this spring. A good scent on the baits, such a Yum in Crawfish scent, can't hurt either.

San Jose del Cabo

Merry Christmas!

Anglers –

December 23, 2018



We have seen lighter than normal crowds
arriving for this Christmas Holiday
week. Though it is feeling more like
winter time now, cooler days, low
temperatures of 55 degrees, highs in
the mid-70s. Some scattered cloud
cover, with mostly sunny skies. North
winds continued to blow all week,
finally letting up Saturday. This has
contributing to pushing in greener
ocean currents, of 73 to 74 degrees off
of San Jose del Cabo, while off of Cabo
San Lucas they reported 78 degree
water.



All around fishing action was slower on
the grounds from the Gordo Banks to
Vinorama. Bait supplies consisted of
caballito, slabs of squid and some
ballyhoo, still no sign of sardinas
showing up along local beach stretches.
Wind has been more relentless this
season, last year at this time we had
good action for wahoo, dorado and tuna,
this year is a different story, as
green water and cooling currents has
turned over conditions.



Very few yellowfin tuna were striking
this week, most of the tuna found were
between Iman and Vinorama, drift
fishing with strips of squid, sizes
averaged 15 to 20 lb., on Friday there
was an 80 lb. yellowfin landed off of
the Gordo Banks. Also we saw one nice
30 lb. yellowtail brought in, as well
as a few deeper water grouper in the 25
to 30 lb. class. Of course triggerfish
continue to dominate all bottom fishing
done closer to shore, a few snapper,
amberjack and pargo species in the mix.



Billfish action was very good through
the first part of the week on the
Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas, off San
Jose del Cabo there has been only a
scattering of striped marlin seen, one
late season black marlin was hooked
into off of the Gordo Banks, but this
fish eventually broke off.



Dorado and wahoo activity was almost
nonexistent, just an occasional fish
being found. Early in the week several
wahoo were hooked into north near
Vinorama, on Friday a 45 lb. wahoo was
brought to the tables. We are hoping
for nicer calm weather conditions,
which would give the water a chance to
clear up some, then wahoo and dorado
action could rebound, before water
becomes too cold and sends these
gamefish migrating to warmer southern
waters.



Along the shore, especially off of the
San Jose del Cabo Hotel zone, there was
good action for roosterfish ranging in
sizes up to 20 lb. Slow trolling with
live caballito was the best technique,
some jack crevalle and sierra also in
the same inshore area.



The combined panga fleets launching out
of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos Marina
sent out approximately 51 charters for
the week. Anglers reported a fish count
of: 4 striped marlin, 8 dorado, 2
wahoo, 35 yellowfin tuna, 9 bonito, 7
white skipjack, 10 red snapper, 12
yellow snapper, 2 amberjack, 1 fortune
jack, 1 yellowtail, 6 cabrilla (leopard
grouper), 6 baqueta grouper, ocean
whitefish, 9 flag cabrilla, 11 sierra,
42 roosterfish, 5 jack crevalle and 110
triggerfish.





Good fishing, Eric
