More ES Beaver Bugs
« on: 07/12/15 17:36 UTC »
 Had to restock my Beaver Bugs after some really good success with them the other day. I was casting them onto the edge of weed lines and right up against the shore, the bass would lightly pick them up and swim off, line watching was crucial to detect a bite. I have to say I'm pretty impressed with this bait and I think my brother was too once I was up 4-0 ;)

Do you split the tail apart or fish as is? Great color.
May your days be filled with sun shine and you always have a tight line. AMEN

I have been fishing it mostly with the tail together but have caught fish both ways.

  I've been leaving it together and putting it on a swing jig.

I'm going to have to try that Lamar, Dfiene1 sent me some killer swing jigs that I have yet to try out.

  This year more then it's been in a long time our water is so clear. I all our lakes. During the spawn I believe most the fish spawned in ten foot depth and never did go to the bank. So what is normally what I call the summer depths our fish were there from the start and now some are even deeper. Making the swing jig work great. It gives me a good heavy weight to get and stay down there and allows me to search a large area quickly. For me this year it has been the ticket. I've also been taking a 10 inch ribbon tail worm on a 7/8 oz shaky head with a 6/0 hook and casting up in ten foot and swimming it down to about 25 foot. So sort of the same deal just to different baits.

Wow, that's some serious weight for a shaky head! I've never had much luck with the extra large profile baits but you have me thinking now.

  When your in a tournament your only looking for five good bites. My partner fishes a lot of six inch worms and will normally get our limit. I fish all day for the kickers. If I have a good day look out.

Watch out Lamar, those big hook shakys can find a leg from quite a distance.  ::)
