Bassin at Pineview
After my post in k2muskie's pole about rating your year, I decided to try Pineview.
I usually wait until the boat ramp no longer charges to launch but I was looking for a place close to home and the View called me.
My buddy and I launched at about noon, thinking that the afternoon fishing should pick up after yesterdays storm.
That was a good decision.
Some of you may remember that I'm very new to Bass fishing and I have been doing it for only the last year or so.
Today was my best day to date.
I caught over 30 Bass today.
Most were smaller fish, in the 12" size but I did pick up a few very nice Smallies that were 3 to 4 pounds.
I used just 2 different set ups today.
The first was my go to Maniac Cuttr bug in brown color.
I started with a 1/8th oz. jig head. This produced fish but I snagged the weeds a lot. I switched to a Maniac salt stick in changeable craw and fished it weedless. This was the first time that I have fished with it and had any luck with it.
I caught at least 12 Bass on it today. That was very fun.
A bit later in the day, I started using a 1/16 oz jig head with the Cuttr bug and it really started catching the Bass.
The lighter jig head allowed the jig to drop slower and I could feel the bite a lot better.
After a good day of Bass fishing at East Canyon 3 weeks ago, I'm really starting to enjoy Bass fishing.
I sure am happy that I decided to give it a serious try this year.
