Hi italo, for years we have had exellent luck at frenchmans bay fishing for large mouth bass in the weeds while wearing waders. Last year and this year however have been terrible, we catch very few bass and even the sunfish and other panfish have disapeared, we can see alot more carp jumping around though. The water has become stained green. Do you have any idea what may have happened and what lures and where in the bay we should target large mouth bass with?ThanksPosted on July 14th, 2016
Hi Alex, if there is a lot of carp activity in the shallows it may have moved the largemouth out. They are probably still in the Bay, but in different locations. You may want to fish similar looking areas all over the bay to see if you can locate them again.
Try using lures that have an erratic action in dark colors like the Lunker City swim-tail baits; Shaker, Grubster, SwimFish either “Texas-rigged” for the weeds, or rigged with a 1/4 oz. sinker for open water around the weeds.
