How do you fish it? Deep, on drop offs,over brush piles, or like a crank bait? Several years ago, I was fishing and the bass started busting on top. I pulled out my favorite plug for schooling fish and my buddy pulled out a black Little George. After he had me about eight to two I was digging for me a George. Anyone ever fishem on top?

Haven't fished one in a long time.. but back in the day.. it was a yo yo type retrieve that was really popular.. throw it out, let it fall.. if you didn't get bit on the fall.. it was rip it up and let it fall again.

I don't think anyone could "fish them on top" even with a new 8:1 reel! They are a chunk of lead. They are an often forgotten lure that will flat catch fish. Caught my largest Lewisville bass fishing one freezing winter day at the old dam casting up shallow and hopping it off the bottom like a worm. They are great anywhere you would "yo-yo" a spoon and for schooling fish nothing is better. If you can see schooling through binoculars you can reach them with a Little George, they cast a mile!

Tail spinners were really HOT a few years ago in the cold! There are much better options than ol George

The definitely will catch bass, but more white bass than blacks. I prefer them over a slab when fishing for Sand bass.



Slide right, coming in .... Fish On!

Lil George was a hot white bass bait years ago on Livingston before the pet spoon craze took over. I haven't heard much out of them over the last 10 years or so. They would catch black bass too but like Ronnie said above there were much better offerings.

Back in the day when bass schooled with sandbass we used them in this manner because you could cast them so far. We could cast them about as far with yesterday's tackle, as we can throw a crappie jig with today's tackle...lol but yes we used to throw them year round, like a spinner bait in the summer and a slab/George in the winner. And yes has been a locate tool for me for about 40 years

Completely devastating on the sandies when caught schooling. At times on Texoma, when we found the sandies schooling, we caught one on every cast. It was giggling, half-crazed madness. Never worried about working it - it was more a matter of how quickly you could throw it out again.
