Moved here from up north a few years ago. I use to think I was a pretty fair bass fisherman but Texas fish have educated me. I don't have a clue LOL. Spent 9 hours out the other day throwing tops waters / in-line spinners / jointed and non jointed swim baits. Nothing. All of the spots I was sure would be great spots from past expierence were a flop. I was throwing at shore as I always have done up north but I think the fish were deeper than I was. I have never fished deeper waters for bass, always took them from weeds along the shore. I have a small boat and no LCD - Drop bait to bottom and count down to see how deep I am.
Any pointers on catching fish in Lake Jacksonville would be great. Planning on taking my son fishing again Monday morning and need to learn this pretty quick. Putting in at Peninsula Point Park.
My plan (didn't work last time LOL) is throwing a Zara Spook at shore just before sun rise and then if that doesn't pan out, move the boat off shore by about 20 feet or so and drop a Texas Rigged 7 inch worm down and then float and jig the bait. Thoughts?? Colors??
Thanks in advance for any help. beginning to feel Texas fish are much smarter than I once thought I was
The more complex the mind, the greater the need for the simplicity of play.
