Trolling Sinkers
sinkers
Clip-on Sinkers
Bottom Bouncers
Get better control of the depths, keep your lures free from debris, walks on two legs, won't spin, tangle free, less knots, easy to use & store. Clip-on sinkers and bottom bouncing slip sinkers, the best trolling sinkers around and the price is hard to beat. I caught 3 Walleye over 11 pounds using these Clip-on Sinkers at Lake Erie! They work on the mississippi River too! The slip sinkers are a must have for rivers and lakes. No more tieing knots all day with a 3-way rig, just run line through the sinker and tie to leader, just one knot!

March Bass

Mississippi River


March is time for big Bass

I just don't have the desire like I used to, maybe when my grandson gets a little older I will again, but I would rather spend time with him and do my work on computer rather than spend a day fishing for one bite, even if it would mean a big Bass, its just not that important like it used to be.

But if I was to go Bass fishing, I would head up to a lake I fished many years. I would use a black rubber skirted jig, about a quarter ounce, and a black pork rind. I would cast it up close to shore while fishing in deeper water. I would let it fall to the bottom, and when I saw slack in my line I would slowly reel it back in. The closer to the boat the slower I would swim it back because it would be getting deeper. If I felt a tick, I would drop my rod and then slam the hook into a fish.

I would also try fishing mid shallow areas, weed beds and flats. Instead of casting toward shore I would cast out and let it fall to the bottom, swim it for a few feet, then let it drop again, and swim again etc. That way I would know I am close the the bottom or I would be letting it drop where fish might be hiding in weed patches. Spinnerbaits and crank baits might work too, if worked slow enough. On the river I would be using spinner baits, but some lakes have so many weeds that will make a spinnerbait hard to use.

I would probably launch the boat and fish the whole 170 acre lake, because you never know where a big fish will move up and feed. It would spend more time where ever the wind had been blowing the warmer surface water for the last day or so.

I can't remember all the big fish I have caught, but I do remember some of the ones that got away. One day I forgot my net after washing the boat and I lost a huge bass after touching its bottom lip as the wind blew me away from the fish. I learned my lesson well about using a fresh know, and a strong hook to match the pound test I was using. With light line a small hook is fine but with heavier line a strong hook is needed or you may pull too hard and straighten the hook. One day I set the hook so hard my rod broke in half, the fish got away and a bird let me have it with droppings, all at the same time. Now I use my wrists to snap the hook set instead of trying to use my whole body.
