    Bass in the Gorge 4/4

    Went up to the gorge today to see if I could get into some early bass. Got instant action off of a rocky island. Ended up with around 30 bass and didn't get any dinks. The best bait was the plastic shad rap and a jig. I got them between hood river and the dalles. The columbia river bite is on.

    Amazing bank fishing day

    The bigger bass were right by structure. Most of the smaller ones were more spread out and making surface splashes. I had to kind of call in the bigger ones by ripping the bait real hard and letting it suspend for a few seconds.

    Nice limit in a couple hours at Hagg Lake

    Amazing bank fishing day

    I got off work at 2:30 and decided to go try hagg for the evening bite for bass. I got there at 3:30 and started casting out my old reliable xcalibur jerkbait. I got a couple cookie cutter largemouth and then switched over to a senko. I got 4 on that twitching it on the bottom deep. The shade...

    How to

    Use a weightless senko and twitch on the edges of the grass or weeds. You can also use stickbaits reeled in slowly. I use a 2inch rapala balsa minnow and a 4 inch x rap these lures drive bass nuts.

    Good luck charms for bass

    I was wondering if anyone here has some kind of good luck charm when they go bassin. I always wear my wally world 3$ camo hat. If I don't wear it I seriously catch nothing. I also got my old 5 ft baitcaster combo. I never fish with out it.

    Help with the upper Willamette

    Its not that bad. They have a well marked channel because theres alot of barge traffic through there. I never actually ventured into the rock island sloughs they were way to dangerous looking. Probably lots of bass in there but theres huge reefs then its 40 feet deep very unpredictable. I have...
