By Steve VonBrandt
All experienced anglers know that on specific bodies of water, there are always certain spots that produce the best bass year after year. When you have fished your best spot, and it is unproductive, do you move to another spot, or stay there hoping for the bass that you know are there to start hitting?

In my 35 years of experience, I have found that you should leave a reliable spot only after you have tried your best, with a variety of time proven baits. This has been proven to me over and over, on a variety of Lakes and Rivers in the country. More times than I can remember, we came right in behind another angler and caught bass right out of the area that they just worked with only one bait, and moved on.

The top places to catch bass on almost any lake in the country are Docks, Sloping Gravel/Sand Points, Shoreline Drop-offs, and Dense Cover near deep water.

The dense cover such as hyacinth, milfoil, Hydrilla, different varieties of pads, reeds and other grasses, are one of the best areas to big bass. The drop-offs with rocky, sandy, and/or gravel points running into deeper water, with some other structure mixed in at the ends of the points, seems best, and of course boat docks and piers. Never overlook the docks and piers. We have had many a slow day on the Sassafras and Nanticoke, only to switch lures and presentations, in the marinas and boat docks, and catch that one kicker fish or sometimes the biggest bass of the day.

If you check most any pro bass fisherman's outfits, you will usually see these 5 lures tied on, (provided you can get a look at them). They will be a buzzbait, a crankbait, a spinnerbait, a Carolina and/or Drop-Shot rig, and a Jig. There will be many other rods, and other lures ready to use but, these are the mainstay of baits for most any situation in the country. The following strategies should help you thoroughly cover the water from top to bottom.

DROP-OFF SHORES / GRAVEL POINTS: I always look at the way the land around the lake goes into the water. That land usually continues out into the water the same way. Move to within about 25-35 feet from shore, and cast directly to the area with a buzzbait, cutting the water like a piece of pie, over and over, at different speeds and angles. Next, cast the spinnerbait against the shore and work the area at different depths and speeds. Then do the same thing with the crankbait. I use a deep diver for this so it can get down quickly and bounce off rocks, sand, stumps, on the bottom, or mid-depth. I then cast the same area with a Carolina rig, with a French Fry worm, a cut-tail worm, or a Senko. I change boat positions often to work this and the other baits at many angles to the drop-off shore. I stair-step the jig down any rock ledges, and crawl/hop it down the edge of the point where it meets deeper water. I use a smaller Terminator jig for this. On the Gravel/Sandy points, I do the same thing as when I'm Drop-off shores. The color of the water should dictate what color baits to use. If the water is muddy, use louder baits, in black,black/red, Black/Brown combinations; if the water is clear, I pick more natural colors for the baits, and a less noisy model.

DENSE COVER: This is my favorite type of cover to work. First I cast a buzzbait wherever possible, working it in and out of cover at varies angles and retrieves. When the water is really calm, I throw a real small buzzbait that works very slowly on the surface. I have clear skirts, pearl skirts, and other subtle natural colors that I can easily switch. I then throw the spinnerbait, working it in and out of the pockets in the pads, making it turn quickly, then flutter down, and even bulge the surface. I work it a variety of ways until the bass dictate what they want to me. When in the River I make sure I bump into every limb of the tree with the bait at every angle before going to the next bait. If they don't hit a Fat bodied crankbait around the edges, or dead sticked in the open pockets, then I switch to a Tournament Frog, or Rat, and work this in a variety of conventional and unconventional ways. If this is a good area, and I don't get any hits with these baits, then I would throw the Carolina rig and the jig around the edges of the cover, and right into any pockets in the cover.

DOCKS: These areas always produced for us on sunny days, whether it was in the river or a lake, especially in the summer and early fall. You should approach the docks quietly, and start to work them from farther away with each lure type. Only when they don't hit these other baits first, should you then move in with the jig and Senko, and flip each piling on the dock, then skip the Senko under the dock as far as possible. There are many more tactics you could try if you aren't getting any takers from your best spots, but these are the basics that you should practice every time you go to get into the habit of doing these things. It will become second nature, and you will notice the results in your local or club tournament wins, or your recreational fishing alike.

Report Description: Capt George Landrum

Fly Hooker Sportfishing


WEATHER: We had wonderful weather this week as it was sunny all week long and the wind
only started blowing after noon each day and almost every day had stopped by morning. The one
exception was on the 21st when it continued to blow until 9 AM. Our daytime highs were in the
low 90ís and night time lows reached down to the mid 60ís but most nights were around 70

WATER: The water on the Pacific side of the Cape has been cold, at least relative to the water
on the Sea of Cortez side. It did not get to 70 degrees until you were well past the San Jaime
Banks, and the water close to shore was as cold as 63 degrees. On the Sea of Cortez it was
another matter as we had a finger of warm water, sometimes as warm as 77 degrees, push
towards the Cape following the shore and extending out to around 12 miles. Once out past the
12 miles the water got a bit off color but remained fairly warm. The cold Pacific water continued
to push in but upon meeting the warm water on the Cortez side it was forced to the south.

BAIT: The normal $2 per bait for Caballito (most of them were small) with very few small
Mackerel available. I did not hear of any Sardines making it down to Cabo from San Jose.


BILLFISH: The warm water returning to our area brought the Billfish with it! I heard reports of
at least three Blue Marlin being caught this week, with the largest one at #480. On Thursday the
Striped Marlin bite just seemed to explode with some boats getting shots at as many as 20 fish a
day. The average seemed to be 10 fish a day (not caught, but seen and baited) with most boats
able to get at least one to the side. The bite was in the warm water area of the Sea of Cortez,
between the shore and out 10 miles, and from right in front of town all the way up the coast to the
Punta Gorda area. Most of the bites seemed to occur on trolled lures, with the strikes on them
out numbering the strikes on live bait by about 3 to 1. Most of the fish were in the #120 class.

YELLOWFIN TUNA: If you read last weeks report, you remember me mentioning the Purse
Seiners that have been hanging around. Well, they are still here. I was out on the water today
and saw three of them under way just off the coast on the Cortez side, one of them was a super
seiner carrying a helicopter on the roof. Besides those three, there were four more anchored off
the beach in Cabo Bay. Now let me pose a question to you. If these boats are not legally allowed
to fish within 50 miles of the coast, why do they stop and drift all day on the banks and the 95
spot? Do you think they may be waiting for the sport boats to leave so they can set their nets at
night? That may be one of the reasons we are not seeing any Yellowfin much larger than 20
pounds, with the rare exception of an occasional 40-60 pound fish, and may also explain why the
porpoise are behaving so strangely. All right, the Yellowfin this week were on the small side still,
but they were still the fish of the week as almost all the charter boats were able to get a few of
them on board, and a few boats absolutely loaded up on them. Early in the week just to the west
of the San Jaime was a good area and then the bite shifted to due south of the Cape. Often in
Porpoise, but just as often they were blind strikes. Contrary to what is usually the case, the best
bitten lures this week were feathers in bright colors, Mexican Flag and Yellow/Green. Normally
they bite best on dark colors.

DORADO: There were not a lot of Dorado caught this week but it looks as if the bite should be
picking up soon. A couple of days in a row there were kelp paddies found on both the Pacific
(early in the week) and on the Cortez side (later in the week) and these paddies held decent
numbers of Dorado to 25 pounds. There are still occasional fish being found in the blind in the
warm water areas as well.

WAHOO: Last week there were some Wahoo beginning to show and this week they came on
strong. Not every boat caught them, but there were boats that were in the right place at the right
time and did very will. One Captain I know got the fish of a lifetime when he hooked a Wahoo
that weighed #120 as he was approaching a kelp paddy. He ended the day with 4 Wahoo, the
other three were a pair of #40 fish and another one of around #70, and he lost several others!
There were quite a few of the larger fish caught this week and the Gorda Banks as well as the
points between Cabo and San Jose popped out fish as well. Oh, donít forget the kelp paddies and
the open ocean fish as well! Marauders and dark colored lures, mostly in blue/black and Petrelero
worked well.

INSHORE: No change from last week so here it is again. Slow fishing in rough water on the
Pacific side, but those that could handle it found fair fishing up around the lighthouse on the
Pacific and just off the Arches for Yellowtail to 25 pounds on live bait dropped deep and irons in
white. There were also Sierra in the 4 to 8 pound range in the same area as well as right in the
Cabo San Lucas Bay and up around El Tule. The favorite for good catches of Sierra seemed to
be dark colored hootchies run deep with the use of a planer or down-rigger. Elsewhere the
inshore action was slow with only a few fish found.

NOTES: Lets see, hot topics of the week were the ďPurse SeinersĒ, the great Wahoo bite and
finally the Striped Marlin bite turning on. I already wrote about them in the report so I wonít go
over it again. Letís hope the bite continues on the Wahoo and the Marlin, and keep our fingers
crossed that something will be done with the Seiners. A.....before I sure to get a
fishing license when you are here if you plan to go fishing. The guys from Department of
Fisheries have been boarding boats returning to the marina (accompanied by armed marines) and
confiscating the rods and reels from boats where the anglers do not have licenses. I saw this with
my own eyes this week. It is no longer difficult to get a license though, not the time draining and
headache causing chore it used to be. Just go to the little office over by the main dock (ask
anyone, they will tell you where it is) and pay the fee, they will issue it right there, right now!
This weeks report was written to the music of my cats screaming for fresh Tuna, maybe next
week I will put a CD on and drown them out! Until then, tight lines!
