Structure and cover come in all forms. Docks, trees ... heck, even tires. There are a hundred different forms of them, and about a zillion different setups to fish them. This particular spot - truck/tractor tires anchored as a breakwall outside a marina - was really productive for me. Here's how I fished it: -A Megabass of America Orochi XX F61/2-70XX Jig & Worm Rod -12-pound Gamma Fishing fluorocarbon -A white, 1/2-ounce Dirty Jigs Tackle Tour Level Pitchin' Jig -A Z-Man Fishing Products Turbo CrawZ in Pearl
I chose the 6 1/2-foot Orochi because I wanted a shorter, stiffer rod. I was really snapping the jig a lot, so that rod allowed me to do that with less fatigue, but it was stiff enough to get a hook through on the hookset. Notice that I was using 12-pound line, too. I downsized because I wanted my bait to have more movement in the water - I was trying to force those fish to react to the bait, and heavier line would've dragged it down a little.
Give this setup a try sometime, it works like a charm for me! #fishing #bassfishing #fishingtips ... See MoreSee Less
