This time we are going to share with you some of the best kept fishing professional secrets, comes a very exciting season of fishing, the POST-DESOVE.
Bass. How do they behave, because it is useful to know it?
It is very important to know the behavior of our prey, this behavior does not change, and that is very useful when wanting to find it, if for example, it is Saturday afternoon and we are looking for our compadrito Juancho, which we know, which is somewhat prone to Bohemian life… Not look for it in the office because it is no longer time to work, or at home as it is still very early to arrive, probably will call mobile the good Juancho that for these hours is already in any restaurant, Bar or Pub, any spirituous drink before arriving home. Similarly largemouth bass adheres much to their behavior and with this we can always count.
Now, transport our scenario to our favorite Lake: it’s spring, nests have been left empty, only some males have been taking care of the last FRY, females have ended to fulfill the ritual more than nature, perpetuate their species and are now exhausted, will be in this condition for periods that sometimes can last up to 2 weeks after leaving the nest in this period of time your behavior is the rest, they will seek to stabilize your metabolism which has been so demanded in the process spawning…
And where they go when they have left the nest?
When the spawning season is finished we will find with the fact that we look for them in the basement, in the spawning areas and they are no longer there, then decided to go look for them to deep water, sunk lomas, or our frequent locations of vertical fishing in the summer, and nor are there… So if they are not there, or here, where it is that they have gone? Well, that tells us that they are now in a period of transition, traveling back to deep water, fortunately, the bass are very well marked, with temporary periods of permanence “migration” routes, abiding by either the provision of food or because they are in any of the stages of nesting.
Bass moved to places of nesting by means of canals and streams, following ancient sunken roads, railways, old roads, fences of ranches, cattle trails, coastal lines carrying Earrings from deep to a sandy plain, as well as tips and falls areas (walls) that run parallel to the nesting areas.
They take to return to deep water the same routes that were used for nesting, not all at the same time, even not all leave the area since some remain in shallow water, but whenever they return do so following this preset pattern.
The bass as our friend Juancho will make a brief stop after the period of nesting and before you get home, as well as Juancho stopped a moment on his way to replenish the forces after a long workday, so also the bass have programmed in your biological clock paused to rest, this period can last from 5 0 6 days up to 2 weeks and first will be a somewhat slow fishing time for the first to make the bass will be “suspended” on or very near a coverage (examples: shrub, trunk.) Sunken House, stone…) that this is just the first step before the fall, at this time does not feed actively, only replenishes the stress of spawning, the good news is that even which are dormant, and are fishable areas which to search are as we discussed earlier, those structures of “fall” or points that also have coverage(more examples… mogote) rubble, dock, rock, etc.) just before a pronounced decline, largemouth bass will be suspended above the coverage that is right on the edge of this fall, this is very important, not to medium depth, not at the bottom, but just above the coverage.
A stream bed is almost always very productive after spawning, fishing the line of trees that they run parallel to your cause
The last tree before the fall is gold ground on these occasions. An example very clear will be trying to catch a brook or river and search them precisely in the trees that delimit the drawer of the Brook, just those that are at the cutting edge of change of depth.
With that kind of lure should I catch these bass that are charging batteries?
In lakes with abundant vegetation sub-aquatic (hidrilla) the right place where it ends this means many times that there is a change in the depth, that could be a stream or a fall, these places are also good for bass after spawning, just where the hidrilla ends.
It is very important to take into account that these bass are going to be some time resting after spawning. These bass, while feeding, do not on a regular basis, their bite is tenuous, its very tiny area of attack, and not willing to pursue food. Lures that we suspend or place very close to the area of attack of the Bass are indicated.
- HARD JERK BAITS.Throwing in a way such that they may fall a little behind structure we choose, pick up slowly giving some pulls the only lure with the doll and try to hover just above the shrub where is largemouth bass.
- Carolina Rig.The “Slug gos, lizards, senkos, presented in this arrangement in recovery super slow are very effective.”
- Range of 3 to 6 feet, have much volume, with this lure the key also is approaching it much to largemouth bass that is just across the coverage (Bush) or very attached to this.
- Using the same technique we used before with the “jerk”.
- Jig´S. “Flipeados” directly to coverage
- FIX TEXAS.Jerck soft baits (slug gos), worms, senkos, small creatures, small tubes, pichados directly to the center of the coverage.
And after this period of “recharge batteries” that happens?
The next step that will give the Bass immediately after having “refilling” is the feeding lavishly, a real fishing Carnival kicks once bass enters active mode, now more appropriate places to find bass are in tips, falls and secondary tips,
in the area which includes from your area where recovered until the second step, is this part of the journey in the path of largemouth bass that many fishermen that many call: “The era of Fury” and this denomination is much more than a poetic title, and it is at this time that largemouth bass attacks with a lot of force our lures and isn’t anything strange listening to stories of fishermen who practically them They snatched the bait and Rod!
The Black Bass will be always hunting at the same depth, and will be doing it for extended periods of time, looking for prey movement, that is very important to make sure that depth has stuck us first, and continue moving like largemouth bass, following its path parallel to falls, fishing in that same depth where we find them. The bass don’t move in zigzag, our good friend Juancho do that only after having consumed some whiskitos, his way home swinging from side to side of the sidewalk.
If the Black Bass take a lure to some depth is very wise always keep in this same range and launch our lures parallel to the required depth, so keep for much longer our lure in target area. If we keep our decoy in the area that largemouth bass considers its zone of power will have more chances to succeed.
With that kind of lure should I catch these bass that are actively feeding?
Lure of movement, here is important to emphasize that not only enough to handle the lure in recovery fast, much of the success in this time will also depend on that so much life can print you our decoy, making recoveries from stop n go, improvising, using our ability to introduce you to the Smallmouth Bass a wounded animal that is always more you want them to eat.
DRIFTS. Working range of up to 20 feet, is working in parallel to the structure (fall, tip, tip secondary, row of trees, nearby…) and we will gather them rather quickly and always trying to make pauses in the recovery.
RAT TRAPS L. Of 1 0z. or heavier, also working them parallel to the structure.
SPINNERBAITS. ¾ to 1 Oz. With double-bladed wilow, one in size 4 and the other in size 6. Working in the same way, parallel to the structure.
CAROLINA arrangement. Plastics type Slug-go, Flukes or Superflukes, King prawns, sencos, worms. Always very close to the sticks, mogotes, trunks, working parallel to the fall
Kind friends, now you have enough information about how and where to find bass in the post spawning and because. They also have some “tips” that I have been very useful personally, I hope they will be as useful to you as they were for me, and remind you that the best way to catch bass is in Lake, River, or prey to your preference and practicing everything we have learned much, I say goodbye to you wishing you the best of luck , mood and even the next!
