    @reptifreak99 because you have minnows, the bass may thrive on those so think of some soft plastic flukes, with murkier water, try more natural colours, like browns and greens, when and if the water becomes more translucent try more attractive brights colours and patterns. You can swim, jerk, and jig these flukes to see what works the best, when your jigging them, use a split shot or bullet weight. Make sure to buy tungsten bullet weights and tin split shots, lead is very harmful.

  16. TheMokedoke says:

  17. ooTheWhooo says:

    I tend to use a spinner bait or a gary yamamato worm with and o ring on it
    i catch a lot of fish with that but do think a popper is a good lure?

  18. AGAonLIVE says:

    @TheSoccerguy58 it depends where your fishing, if your in a pocket using plastic use a medium weight so it has a slowfall they will go for that but if you are in shallow throw up a really light one if none o it will just sit below the water

    Like this if he deserves a partnership

  20. n4sir804 says:

    @TheSoccerguy58 no you dont…you can use a senko and fish it “dead stick” or brush hog….but having the weight helps alot..specially in river water…you dont need a huge weight except in certain situations…keep it simple…good luck

  21. mrfizch says:
