An abundance of bass!

Hit the upper willy (newberg) this week twice caught 12 smallies the first day and 20 the second!
We just drifted nightcrawlers till we ran out. Then I set up a drop shot with a plastic worm. I had never done it before but they just murdred it. Took this pic at the end of the day. This was about the average size.

It was real fun. I think its gonna be my new "go-to" bass setup. Most fish were caught in 4-12 feet of water, on grassy flats.

Small mouth bass is delicious! But to each their own!

Nice smallie! Sounds like you guys slayed'em. You ever throw any crawdad crankbaits for smallies?

No. I just accedentally stumbled across bass fishing last year. Dont know much about it. Only what Ive read on the forum. Super fun though. They fight like absolute demons. Whats a crawfish crainkbait?

A crawfish crankbait is simply a crankbait formed and painted to look like a crawfish (crawdad). My favorite model is made by Rebel and comes in a few different sizes. Most sporting goods stores carry them (as does Bi-Mart). I used to live right next to a small creek loaded with nice smallies and they absolutely LOVED these lures, as crawfish are one of their favorite meals. When I'm going for bronzebacks the Rebel Crawfish is my go-to lure.

Ill have to pick one up. Ive heard that crainkbaits work good for bass. Ill grab a crawdad one. Thanks

the crawdad color works best at the beggining of spawn because they come up to the surface to lay eggs as well. (spawn is happening as we speak for the majority of the bass right now) after that it kinda fizzles out then picks back up for the summer and fall. they also hit the crawdad color because of the smolt in the river.... they eat so many smolt that its almost like a desert to see a crawdad up in the spawn grounds!!! good luck!
