The Hawg Forum / Almost ice fishing
« Last post by toadhunter on November 18, 2019, 11:39:23 AM »
Went out yesterday with windy conditions and a temp of 28 and it never got above 36. Caught 7 bass mostly on Jerkbaits and crankbaits. The cranks were the usual cast and slow reel, but with the jerkbaits I used a method I call "crawling". Essentially you cast as far as you can, pay out an additional 20 to 30 feet of line and let the wind slowly drift you along. You don't reel in the line just simply twitch the bait every 5 or 6 seconds until the fish hits. This lets the bait stay at the maximum depth the entire time, almost like trolling but slower.

@Curt - RI Ahh now I gotcha! The beaver is a bigger fish bait for myself, and the chatterbait isnt a big fish bait for me. Makes sense! I think that fish I caught last week off the bank on the chatterbait is my biggest fish I have caught on it.

I've caught some decent fish on the bladed jigs, but nothing monstrous yet. I'm sure it will come as time goes by though!

@Curt - RI Didn't you catch that big guy at one of our night tourneys on a Bladed Jig? Or am I just making up random memories in my head? LOL I thought I remember talking with you, after the fact because I had a few of my fish on the chatterbait that night.

Nope. The big fish was on a creature bait. My other fish that night hit a bladed jig. I had a feeling that might have been the fish you were referring to.

@metz12 I'm trying to remember where and when that was. Please refresh my memory, since I seem to be having a brain fart  (giggle)

@toadhunter I hear all the time how people catch big fish on chatterbaits. I have never found it. Its really more of a numbers bait for me. I may have 2 or 3 fish at or just above 3lbs on the chatterbait. I throw a spinnerbait more often, and that is a bigger fish producer for me then a chatterbait. But when the chatterbait bite is on, I usually land at least 3 or 4 fish on it. @Curt - RI got a pretty much a 6 pounder over in CT this summer when we fished over there in a tourney. Last year in 2018, the chatterbait was a big producer for me, and put the most fish in my boat by far, and hardly any on the spinnerbait. This year it was the spinnerbait. That put the most, and biggest fish in the boat for me this year.

@metz12 , solid fish. @ProvidenceBassHunter throws the chatterbait a lot and some ponds he always seems to find the big fish of the day with it.
