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.

Wed., August 27, 2003 Report covers the period Sat.-Tues. (8/23 - 8/26)



IN GENERAL The Chubasco Ignacio passed off the coast of Buena Vista Sat. night. The wind roared all night long, with gusts from 75- to 120-mph, but amazingly there was no real damage done to the hotel. Plenty of rain up to 20-inches reported in some areas filled up several of the arroyos making them impassable. Both Las Palmas Arroyo near Mira Flores and the Las Cuevas Arroyo south of Buena Vista near the turnoff to La Ribera should be open in the next day or two. While all flights were cancelled Sun. and Mon., all airlines are reporting business as usual today. With all the debris dumped out of the arroyos everyone is anticipating a bonanza in the dorado department. Boats headed out yesterday found calm seas with mixed results and the fleet is back up to full speed as of this morning (8/27). Thanks to all of you who contacted us to be sure the Baja on the Fly staff had survived the latest Baja Chubasco.

BILLFISH - The fleet will have to find them all over again.

YELLOWFIN TUNA – Same deal here.

DORADO - Plenty of trash and flotsam should make it easier to find them.

ROOSTERFISH - Give it a couple of days and they will show up.

JACK CREVALLE - Punta Colorada receivers is a good place to start.

BARRILETE OR MEXICAN SKIPJACK - They're mixed in with the tuna under the

PARGO AND CABRILLA - Las Barracas was holding a few, but it's an early
morning deal.

SIERRA - Punta Colorada Bay under the receiver the best shot.


Wed., August 27, 2003 Report covers the period Sat.-Tues. (8/23 - 8/26)

IN GENERAL: A much weaker, slow moving Ignacio brought plenty of rain and
wind to Puerto San Carlos and the surrounding areas beginning on Mon. night and
is continuing dump buckets full as of this morning. Some flooding was reported at
Ciudad Constitución, but no serious damage so far. Before the storm hit, positive reports from offshore enticed several pangas out in search of big tuna and they found some
in the 50-pound class. With temps on the rise, bait balls are forming, and more and more exotics including marlin, tuna and dorado are being spotted. It looks like the Magdalena Bay fish pileup will not disappoint again this year. Don't miss out on the spectacular show. Get a front row seat at Flyrod Marlin 101. Call 800 919 2252 today.

YELLOWTAIL - Pretty good before the storm.

CORVINA - Pier, bridge and power plant all producing good action.

SNOOK - Best week this year, then Ignacio shows up. We will see what happens now!

HALIBUT - Always to be found on sandy beaches throughout the bay.

SIERRA - Pier and bird schools the best place.

Sat., Aug. 23, 2003, Report covers the period Sat.-Fri. (8/16 - 8/22)

IN GENERAL: Offshore, the 82º blue water is right at the entrance to
Zihuatanejo Bay, but the fishing is not nearly as good as we think it should be.

All the boats are each getting one or two sailfish per day. The small (160
pound average) blue marlin are still hanging around and feeding on the abundant
skipjack tuna. The fleet, averaging about 10 boats, is taking about 1 blue a

We need a lot more rain than we have been getting to attract the dorado and
make them stick around. As we approach Sept.., this should happen in the next
couple of weeks. The heavy rains flush trees and debris out of the numerous
rivers we have in the area, which in turn stacks up on the current lines.
However, as it is now, very few dorado are being taken.

The roosterfish action is definitely one of the bright spots, but only about
one boat a day is targeting them. Due to the lack of pressure, virtually the
entire coast is virgin water. Those that do target the roosters are getting 4
to 5 fish a day. They are averaging between 30 and 40 pounds.
