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 itís 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 isnít 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 isnít 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 Rattliní 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.

San Jose del Cabo

March 9, 2014
Anglers -

As the first wave of spring break travelers continue to arrive in Los
Cabos, they are being greeted with absolutely beautiful pristine
weather conditions, with high temperatures hovering near the 80 degree
mark, clear skies and plenty of warm sunshine. Winds have been light
and anglers enjoyed very pleasant days on the ocean. Swells were
slight and we have seen warmer currents sweeping in, with water
temperature now averaging 72 degrees on the Pacific side of Cabo San
Lucas and increasing to 74/78 degree in the direction of the Sea of
Cortez and the Gordo Banks, just outside of these grounds is where the
warmest water is now located.

The Golden Gate Banks has continued to be the hot spot for finding
striped marlin, also fair numbers of dorado reported from the Pacific
grounds. While the billfish action in the direction of San Jose del
Cabo was very spotty, with the lack of offshore baitfish
concentrations, the stripers are scattered. More numbers of dorado
were encountered close to shore, at times actually seen chasing half
beaks (ballyhoo) directly on to the sandy beaches, at least one dorado
was hooked and landed inside of the Puerto Los Cabos Marina Channel.
Most of the dorado now seen have been in the 5 to 15 lb. class, with a
few exceptions of larger specimens up to 25 pounds accounted for.
Despite the warmer water temperatures we have seen fewer dorado this
past week, as well as only a few wahoo, though we have heard of big
wahoo bite now going on off of Cerralvo Island, which is out of our
local charter range.

Inshore action was now producing many roosterfish in the 5 to 15 lb.
range, trolling with live caballito was the best bet for this,
remember these are rapidly growing gamefish, not known for good table
fare and should be released with care, in order to mature and enhance
the future fishery. Sierra numbers were down, warmer waters and lack
of sardinas contributing to this situation.

The most exciting event this past week has been the season's first
massive run of pelagic red crabs, particularly on the high spots north
of the Gordo Banks. Masses of these small crabs drifted to the
surface, turned the sea a reddish color and this in turn was
attracting the humpback whales, whale sharks and of course the Pacific
red snapper (huachinango. This occurrence is always unpredictable,
when conditions are just right these pelagic crustaceans swarm,
normally happening sometime during the March to May time frame, though
in local waters we have not seen such a run for several years. These
red crabs are a favorite food source for many species, especially so
for the red snapper, also one of the most popular and valuable
commercial catches. All of the local commercial pangeros are now
working overtime to catch as many kilos of these prized snapper as
they are capable of while this bite lasts. These are the true Pacific
snapper and average from 4 to 12 pounds in weight, scrappy fighters on
light tackle and at times they are found schooling near the surface.

Other action included lots of Eastern Pacific Bonito and some early
season amberjack, the bonito (3 to 10 lb.) were striking yo-yo jigs or
trolled Rapalas over the high spots and the ambers, which ranged to
over 30 lb., were hitting best on the yo-yo style jigs or by drifting
live caballito off of the structure. There were lots of yellowfin tuna
in the 20/25 lb. class seen breezing on the grounds north of Punta
Gorda, but only a handful of these tuna were hooked into, very
finicky, as they normally do become when they acquire a taste for
these same red crabs.

The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los
Cabos Marina sent out approximately 77 charters for this past week,
with anglers accounting for a fish count of:
1 striped marlin, 3 wahoo, 8 yellowfin tuna, 2 yellowtail, 19
amberjack, 355 bonito, 18 jack crevalle, 18 sierra, 55 dorado, 135
roosterfish, 6 pompano, 28 yellow tail snapper, 14 cabrilla.and 640
red snapper (huachinango).

Good fishing, Eric
