Tip&Trick Description 1: Muddy Water Baits
By Steve VonBrandt
Nothing ruins the occasional fishing trip more than driving a long distance to your favorite spot, only to find out it’s been raining for the last few weeks and the water is the color of Chocolate milk! Many years ago, I was like most weekend anglers, and would immediately try to find another lake or river that might be a little more clear, or just turn around and go home. But I found over the last 20 years, that it isn’t necessary to give up so quickly on muddy water.

There are many times when a creek arm, or a certain portion of the lake or river isn’t as muddy, or there is a transition zone where it goes from muddy to stained, which can be a good area, but, even if there is no clearer water, there are many things you can do. Most gamefish react the same way to muddy water, they go shallow and they move closer to structure. This could mean a lot of different types of structure, such as brushpiles, laydowns, rocks, stump fields, pads on shallow flats, anything! When the bas are holding tight to cover, because of low visibility, the lure presentations sometimes need to be precise, such as when flipping a log or tree roots with a jig. Bellow are the 6 basic choices you should have rigged for fishing muddy waters.

Plastic Worms: I know this sounds like a strange choice, but a lot of times when bass are holding real tight to cover, a larger, bulkier worm, with some rattle inserted, possibly with a paddle tail, worked real close in the cover, can work well. I used a black or a black/red combination in muddy water. I also use the new Big 7 inch Senko that is out now, and drop it right into heavier cover. I have been using the new Cut-Tail worm for this also.

Vibrating Rattlers: These baits such as the Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap, Cotton Bordell, Diamond Shad, or the Rattlin’ Rapalas, are excellent choices for probing different depths of muddy water, and where muddy changes to stained. The noise and vibrations of these baits, along with a realistic shad shape, make these great baits and stained to muddy water.

Crankbaits: I use a lot of the real fat bodied crankbaits in muddy water. I choose different baits with a wide wobble, and sometimes rattles. I usually stay with darker colors with red in muddy water. These colors with a wide wobble, are easier for bass to find.

Spinnerbaits: The bass will be using their lateral line more in the muddy water, so a spinnerbait with a heavy pulse such as a Terminator night bait, with a black skirt, and Colorado blade, is a perfect choice. You could even add rattles to this bait, which I have had success with in the muddy rivers and lakes in the Northeast. I always use a single Colorado blade on the spinner baits in muddy water, but in stained, or warmer stained water, I do go to an Oklahoma Blade sometimes with good results.

Topwaters: These are my favorite baits to use in muddy water. There are so many baits that shallow, muddy water bass will hit! The buzzbait worked slowly around cover will draw tremendous strikes. The walking type baits, such as a Zara Spook, and Fenwick walking baits, Jitterbugs, Crazy Crawlers, and a variety of other topwaters, including poppers with rattles, are excellent and exciting choices for muddy water bass. The bass will all be in water that is 1-4 feet deep, eliminating a lot of the water, making them easier to catch!

Jigs: Jigs in Brown/Black or Blue/Black with a Zoom or uncle Josh trailer, with some rattles, are an excellent choice to flip into laydowns, and shallow stump fields, and of course on docks. Make repeated casts to give them a good look and provoke them.

If you stick with these baits and methods the next time you run into muddy water, you will never be afraid to see it again. It will become a friend, as it has become to me.

Sat., Nov. 20, 2004. Report covers the period Sat.-Fri. (11/14-11/20)



IN GENERAL: When we returned from Magdalena Bay on Tuesday the North winds were still around. This weekend however, is beautiful and expected to stay that way through Tuesday. Still a few left over tuna and dorado offshore and inshore the skipjack, roosters and jacks seem to be the best bet. With the nice weather I would expect to see a few smiling faces in the bar tonight even though the season is pretty much over.

Nov. 26, Full; Dec. 4, Last Quarter; Dec. 11, New, Dec. 18, First Quarter;

+ OFFSHORE: Tuna and dorado best bet.

+ INSHORE: Get out early in case the wind blows.

+ BEACH: Sticks to La Ribera the best bet for jacks and a few roosters.

BILLFISH – Only a few stragglers.

YELLOWFIN TUNA – Porpoise and birds will be the best clue.

DORADO – Look under anything floating.

ROOSTERFISH\\JACK CREVALLE – Plenty of small jacks and a few good sized roosters up and down the beach from Rancho Buena Vista to La Ribera.

BARRILETE OR MEXICAN SKIPJACK – Breezing schools in front of La Ribera.

PARGO AND CABRILLA – Rocky points and pinnacles in front of La Ribera best bet.

SIERRA – Bring wire or lots of flies!


IN GENERAL: Jamie Pierre, Seattle, WA, along with his band of brothers headed over to Lopez Mateos to fish offshore with Mag Bay Outfitters using their 26-foot catamaran, “Mar Gato”, skippered by Ruben Duran and an offshore panga with local pangero, Sergio, they headed out the Boca to see what was shaking. Turned out to be a wide open Yellowfin bite only 12 miles off the beach. Limits all around for both days. Unfortunately, with the Pacific cooling off quickly, the dorado, wahoo and billfish seem to have headed further down the coast ending what many consider a lackluster season. In the Esteros up at Boca Santo Domingo on the last day the group found a few sierra, pargo, grouper and lost one large corvina.
On another subject, Don Juan, a 72’ Elliott owned by John Lyddon from Southern California was anchored just off the pier in town. This is the first time in a number of years that a Sportfishing yacht has managed to come in through the Boca. Bob Hoyt of Mag Bay Outfitters had provided a guide to lead them in.
I met Don Juan’s Captain, Billy Callinan, while I was there last week and he told me about the wide open pompano bite at Santo Domingo. With the Don Juan backed up to the mangroves they landed three pompanos up to thirty-two pounds. The last time I can remember hearing stories like this was when the legendary Captain Gene Grimes use to make forays up into the mangroves with the 90’ Legend.

YELLOWTAIL – Entrada holding mostly smaller fish.
CORVINA – Even these guys have been tough to come by this week.

SNOOK – Not one snook bite for the entire week.

HALIBUT – Very good if you’re interested.

SIERRA – Plenty of very small ones.

IN GENERAL: Ed Kunze reported in by telephone this morning since his computer crashed. Here is his abbreviated report; as predicted, this week produced some excellent sailfish opportunities and the good news is they are very close to the beach. Only a short two miles and you are in the thick of things. Boats are averaging half-dozen shots a day.

IN GENERAL: With the weather beginning to settle down this week we are looking forward to an increase in the sailfish action offshore. Be sure to pick up the December issue of Pacific Coast Sportfishing for an in-depth feature “Vela! Vela! Vela!” by Ray Rychnovsky on Guatemala fishing that talks about the double digit days in the World’s best sailfish hole. If you want to get up to speed on teasing techniques, check Gary’s column, “How to be a Tease”, in the same issue.
