Largemouth Bass Jig Fishing

Well it wasn’t a great day of fish, but it was still good, a lot better than getting skunked that’s for sure. That’s what happened last time we went fishing, about two days ago to be precise. Since then it seems the fishing has picked up. But, boy was it a cold day out of the lake, it was a strong west on the lake that really gave us the chills. That wind hits your hands and face and you’re ready to turn around and go home.


But we stuck it out and ended up catching three largemouth bass, the first one was pretty small, the second was around a pound, and the third well got off. That was the one my girlfriend had on, it jumped out of the water twice. And the second time it was able to unhook itself, it was rather disappointing. Especially since it had decent size to him compared to the other bass.

The two largemouth bass I caught were on a purple Berkley Powerbait worm, since it was cold out it seems like the bass only responding to jig fishing. My girlfriend was using a spinnerbait, but guess what, she caught the bass jig fishing with the spinnerbait. She said she was twitching it off the bottom like me and she felt it hit. It’s just too bad she didn’t land it, I saw it jump and it was definitely bigger than the other two bass.

We did try fishing in deeper water with crankbaits to see if we could pick up some smallies or maybe a muskie, but nothing. The wind was so chilly out there, we thought fishing near the breakwall would be better because it would cut down on the wind. That’s when we ended up with the three

largemouth bass.


That’s not to say we didn’t try fishing deepwater for an hour or so, we tried trolling too and still managed to pick up nothing. I thought we were going to get a few big fish since there was cloudy cover. But it still seems that the smallmouth bass are not responding, they still have lockjaw.

I’m going to keep at it though, before you know it the fish will be on a feeding frenzy before the winter. I know we’ll be able to pick up some really big smallmouth bass, say four to five pounds. Just have to keep hacking at the bit.
