I’m bass fishing with some small creature baits and fishing around the bank of this lake in shallow water. The largemouth bass are in pre spawn and spawn mode so most of them are shallow around hard banks with some cover. I’m trying to go for a big bass, so I’m fishing my soft plactic worm on the bottom really slow and making precise casts. I never hooked into a giant but still had some nice solid bass. These fish are sitting in less than 3 feet of water and some almost in a foot of water.

The editors at Wired2Fish have worked with a huge swath of the nation’s best bass fisherman, and one lure they always seem to have rigged up is a big walking topwater. The reason for this is simple – they consistently catch big bass everywhere they swim, be it shallow or mid-depth, largemouth or smallmouth. The trick is knowing when to upsize and how to work the lure given the conditions and species. Brandon Palaniuk present 5 tips that will help you get the most of walking baits whenever bass on eating on top.

Overview – Had a brutal day fishing my first time ever at lake Octoraro. The conditions were extremely difficult as the area experienced post frontal conditions and a full moon the night before. Bass typically feed all night during a full moon and cold fronts can sometimes give the bass “lockjaw.”
Everyone in the tournament struggled, with the winner only pulling less than 9 lbs when the average winning weight for tournaments on the lake is around 15 lbs.
We started our day off fishing right by the launching site. Since we had a rental boat with a 55 lb thrust trolling motor, we knew making long runs up the lake in the short 6 hour tournament wouldn’t be a wise decision. I had a black war eagle buzzbait tied on and started covering as much water as I could because I figured our best chance to land a limit would be to capitalize on the morning bite.
Within 10 minutes of fishing, I had a nice blowup as I ran the buzzbait along the length of a laydown in a couple feet of water. I set the hook and the feisty fish darted side-to-side finishing with an acrobatic 1.5 foot jump in the air as it shook its head and threw my bait back at me.
I didn’t think much of it at the time, I figured the bite was good and there’d be plenty more fish to capitalize on as the day went continued. I couldn’t have been more wrong haha.
We covered a ton of shorelines and shallow water in the first two hours of the day hoping to catch some of the bass that were feeding shallow the night before. Even after throwing an arsenal of topwaters, moving baits, and plastics/jigs, not a single bass was to be seen.
Around 8:30 am or so, we decided to try sometime different and headed to a riprap bank since all the anglers who were camping it that morning had finally left and headed up the lake.
I threw a squarebill crankbait parallel to the shoreline while Chris slowly fished a jig n pig in the rock crevices. It wasn’t long before Chris hooked up into the first bass of the day and we could finally fill up our livewell (aka cooler with air bubbler :P).
It wasn’t even 10 minutes later when Chris landed another keeper to give his first fish some company. We thought we had figured out a solid pattern so I tied on a black/blue jig and went to work. We made two runs up and down that bank and I had two solid hits but somehow missed them both.
After an extended period of fishing and not catching, Chris landed our third fish of the day fishing a shoreline about 15 yards next to a different riprap bank. It was another small one but ever angler we talked to was having a tough time so we figured if we could scratch out a limit we might have a shot.
Time dwindled away as the sun rose higher and the temperatures got warmer. I started losing focus and carelessly got my jig stuck under a culvert. Chris tried to position our boat to help me, but it the bait wasn’t going to budge.
Chris threw out a crazy suggestion, offering to maneuver the boat to the other side of the culvert to get my bait out and to fish the backwaters that’s basically untouched. Without nothing to lose, we went for it and against all odds, Chris somehow managed to maneuver our rental boat through the tunnel.

Minnesota smallmouth fishing in heavy current produced some quality fish. The waterfall had the fish stacked up behind the river eddy. Spinnerbaits were the key in the river but we also got some explosive topwater strikes using poppers on the main lake.
