1st actual cold front of the year. Limit of bass on Senko and Spinner Bait. 17 Bar Fish on Red Eye Sexy shad trap. After I caught the bass limit and went back to where the Bar Fish were at and just tossed the trap and hammered the Bar Fish. Had the bass limit by 9:15AM. Good Times...

Me and mom did a morning bass trip. We Kept 15 bass and 1 bar fish.
Was hoping this front would have a bit more to it. The tide was out going but did not move much.
Most on SP and senko's. A couple on Red eye Trap.

Morning bass fishing trip. Excellent water clarity. High water finally going down.
2 spots, and 2 limits.
Senko and white spinner bait with the white willow blade. One the sun came up it was all on the Senko pretty much.

Fished about 3.5 hours today. One bass. SE wind. Looks like the entire weekend will be ESE to SE winds. Not good at all.

Managed to get out of bed and luckily no rain. Limit of 10 bass by 8:30AM. All but one on white spinnerbait.

White skirt, White Sparkle willow, silver Colorado. Made myself. Haven't used a gold blade in a few years now. Other on Senko.

Surprisingly they were not stacked at the slough but instead were about 30 t0 75 yards before it on the edge of grass. Burn the SP about 2' below surface to make it wake just a bit is how i always fish it. Always try to cast parallel to whatever I am casting down that way it works the entire length of the bank/structure. Pause the reel every few moments of time to make the blade briefly change. Don't let the lure sink, just a quick pause. Usually triggers the strike. I always use a trailer hook with a piece of rubber surgical tubing so the trailer is free to move up and down the hook.

Morning trip. Kept 10. Green pumpkin blue Senko caught 9 and spinner bait caught one.
Tossed back about 5 very small ones. Missed a couple that felt a bit nicer.

Finished our limit of 20 bass. Mom manged a few on white spinner bait and most of mine were caught on Senko Watermelon Red and Red Eye sexy shad. A couple on Strike King Sexy Shad crankbait.

Good times.

Managed to get myself out of the bed this morning to see what I could catch. Probably the best trip i had so far this year. Easily landing 20 - 30 bass. Found one drain/canal where they were stacked up. Seen bass busting shad in the middle of the canal. Making long cast past with Red-Eye shad sexy shad and buring just under the surface did the trick. Caught numerous on Red-eye, Senko of all colors, Spinner Bait and managed a couple on med diver sexy shad crank bait. Insane trip. Fall is pretty much here. The bass busting the shad correlates that.

Good to hear. Best time of the year for fishing is here.

I also keep a log of my trips. The posts here are for a photo record of that journal entry.
Love me some bass fishing. There are times I go that the bite is slow. This evening will probably be one of those days as it will be ESE but it is a pretty good outgoing tide. I plan on leaving work at 2PM. The area I fish is South Louisiana :)
The key to success is to fish outgoing tide. Fairly clear water, overcast skies a huge plus. Windy is good. Fog is the bomb. Overcast, fog, and wind...well that right there is a blessing from Thor.
