By Steve VonBrandt
All experienced anglers know that on specific bodies of water, there are always certain spots that produce the best bass year after year. When you have fished your best spot, and it is unproductive, do you move to another spot, or stay there hoping for the bass that you know are there to start hitting?

In my 35 years of experience, I have found that you should leave a reliable spot only after you have tried your best, with a variety of time proven baits. This has been proven to me over and over, on a variety of Lakes and Rivers in the country. More times than I can remember, we came right in behind another angler and caught bass right out of the area that they just worked with only one bait, and moved on.

The top places to catch bass on almost any lake in the country are Docks, Sloping Gravel/Sand Points, Shoreline Drop-offs, and Dense Cover near deep water.

The dense cover such as hyacinth, milfoil, Hydrilla, different varieties of pads, reeds and other grasses, are one of the best areas to big bass. The drop-offs with rocky, sandy, and/or gravel points running into deeper water, with some other structure mixed in at the ends of the points, seems best, and of course boat docks and piers. Never overlook the docks and piers. We have had many a slow day on the Sassafras and Nanticoke, only to switch lures and presentations, in the marinas and boat docks, and catch that one kicker fish or sometimes the biggest bass of the day.

If you check most any pro bass fisherman's outfits, you will usually see these 5 lures tied on, (provided you can get a look at them). They will be a buzzbait, a crankbait, a spinnerbait, a Carolina and/or Drop-Shot rig, and a Jig. There will be many other rods, and other lures ready to use but, these are the mainstay of baits for most any situation in the country. The following strategies should help you thoroughly cover the water from top to bottom.

DROP-OFF SHORES / GRAVEL POINTS: I always look at the way the land around the lake goes into the water. That land usually continues out into the water the same way. Move to within about 25-35 feet from shore, and cast directly to the area with a buzzbait, cutting the water like a piece of pie, over and over, at different speeds and angles. Next, cast the spinnerbait against the shore and work the area at different depths and speeds. Then do the same thing with the crankbait. I use a deep diver for this so it can get down quickly and bounce off rocks, sand, stumps, on the bottom, or mid-depth. I then cast the same area with a Carolina rig, with a French Fry worm, a cut-tail worm, or a Senko. I change boat positions often to work this and the other baits at many angles to the drop-off shore. I stair-step the jig down any rock ledges, and crawl/hop it down the edge of the point where it meets deeper water. I use a smaller Terminator jig for this. On the Gravel/Sandy points, I do the same thing as when I'm Drop-off shores. The color of the water should dictate what color baits to use. If the water is muddy, use louder baits, in black,black/red, Black/Brown combinations; if the water is clear, I pick more natural colors for the baits, and a less noisy model.

DENSE COVER: This is my favorite type of cover to work. First I cast a buzzbait wherever possible, working it in and out of cover at varies angles and retrieves. When the water is really calm, I throw a real small buzzbait that works very slowly on the surface. I have clear skirts, pearl skirts, and other subtle natural colors that I can easily switch. I then throw the spinnerbait, working it in and out of the pockets in the pads, making it turn quickly, then flutter down, and even bulge the surface. I work it a variety of ways until the bass dictate what they want to me. When in the River I make sure I bump into every limb of the tree with the bait at every angle before going to the next bait. If they don't hit a Fat bodied crankbait around the edges, or dead sticked in the open pockets, then I switch to a Tournament Frog, or Rat, and work this in a variety of conventional and unconventional ways. If this is a good area, and I don't get any hits with these baits, then I would throw the Carolina rig and the jig around the edges of the cover, and right into any pockets in the cover.

DOCKS: These areas always produced for us on sunny days, whether it was in the river or a lake, especially in the summer and early fall. You should approach the docks quietly, and start to work them from farther away with each lure type. Only when they don't hit these other baits first, should you then move in with the jig and Senko, and flip each piling on the dock, then skip the Senko under the dock as far as possible. There are many more tactics you could try if you aren't getting any takers from your best spots, but these are the basics that you should practice every time you go to get into the habit of doing these things. It will become second nature, and you will notice the results in your local or club tournament wins, or your recreational fishing alike.

CABO SAN LUCAS FISH REPORT SEPTEMBER 6-12, 2004

WEATHER: We had partly cloudy skies this week but no rain. Sometimes it felt as though we had been rained on as the air was very humid. Our day time highs were in the high 90ís while the night time lows averaged 80 degrees.

WATER: At the end of the week you could see the warmer water on the charts up around Punta Gorda, the dark brown color indicated water temps around 89-90 degrees, way too warm for most fish. Water from 88 to 86 degrees came to us from that area and wrapped just around the Cape out to a distance of 15 miles then it dropped to a much better 85 degrees. On the Pacific side water temperatures in the 86 degrees area were at the San Jaime and the Golden Gate Banks and extended just past them to the west and all the way east to the shore line.

BAIT: No change in bait availability this week, the normal summer Caballito at $2 per bait.

FISHING:

BILLFISH: The Billfish bite still has not picked up, but this time of year the Striped Marlin bite drops off anyway as the water warms up. The Blues and Blacks are not here in any concentration but boats are getting shots every day at some kind of Billfish, at least on the average. There have been Blue Marlin found on both the Pacific side and on the Cortez side but they seem to bite better on the Pacific side where the water temperatures stay in the 85-86 degree range. The Blue Marlin have ranged between #200 and #600, a few Blacks brought in have been between #200 and #400 and most of the Stripers have been around #100. Quite a few Sailfish have been caught on the Pacific side as well, most of them being found within 5 miles of the coast between the lighthouse and toward the Golden Gate Bank. They have been between 50 and 110 pounds.

YELLOWFIN TUNA: Almost all the Yellowfin found this week were in the football category and most of them were found on the Pacific side within 5 miles of shore. No Porpoise were around as indicators, the fish were found on blind strikes. Cedar plugs and small feathers were good for getting anywhere between 2 to 10 fish in the boat. Quite a few small Bonita were mixed in with the schools of Yellowfin and these indicators had a lot of boats working the areas for Marlin as well.

DORADO: Most of the boats returning from the Pacific side of the Cape were flying Dorado flags on their return and quite a few of the fish were found by watching for diving Frigate Birds then tossing live bait under them or slow trolling live bait in the area. There were anchoring floats out on the Golden Gate Banks that held some Dorado as well and the first or last boats to work them were almost always able to get a few fish in the boat. Most of the Dorado were between 12 and 20 pounds with a few fish in the 40 pound range.

WAHOO: I only saw a few Wahoo flags this week and those fish were an incidental catch, there was no rhyme or reason, just blind strikes in open water.

INSHORE: Lotís of Skipjack and Bonita with a few Dorado in the mix accounted for most of the inshore action this week. A few boats were bottom fishing and reported fair catches of Snapper, Grouper and Amberjack.

NOTES: The heat and humidity are nice, but in moderation please! I am sure my electric bill is going to be high as we have been using the air conditioner almost every night in order to sleep. Hopefully we will have no more bad weather this season, I am knocking on wood after typing this! We are keeping an eye on Hurricane Javier, hoping it continues to be influenced towards the west. This weeks report was written to the sounds of singer Nora Roberts. My father copied a CD of hers and sent it to me, I am not sure of the year, title or company. Great mellow music! Until next week, tight lines!
