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., Aug. 23, 2003 Report covers the period Wed.-Fri. (8/20 - 8/22)



IN GENERAL: Plenty of football-size tuna close – just a few miles in front of La Ribera. For the fly-rodder, the problem is that they are down deep and keying on bait. Try this technique: use a weighted fly like a Clouser or Baja Deep Diver, cast as far as you can and let the line sink a long time. Depending on current, that could be as long as several minutes. Retrieve the fly in long, steady pulls. If you don't have a take in seven or eight pulls, roll cast your line back out and let the fly sink and try again. This is the classic 'Not what bites, but what might' situation and occasionally your strip strike will yield a
tuna that is not football-sized, maybe more like a beach ball. The billfish scene continues with blues and sails dominating the action. Makes it tough for the fly-rodder not knowing weather the fish in the teasers is going to be a frolicking sail or an angry blue speedster that takes the fly.

Air temperature 81°-93°
Humidity about 79%

Conditions Scattered Clouds (SCT) : 20,000 ft
Visibility 10 miles
Sunrise 6:57 a.m. MST
Sunset 7:44 p.m. MST

August 27 New Sept. 3 First Quarter Sept. 10 Full Sept. 18 Last Quarter

· OFFSHORE: Try the tuna early, then head out further and pick a fight with the
blue marlin and sails. Action is enough to provide a handful of shots a day for the
alert fly-rodder.

· INSHORE: Jacks, roosters and a occasional dorado to round out the action. If you want something a little different try the pargo at Las Barracas.

· BEACH: Cloudy water from recent rains sure makes it tough to play the sight casting game. Plenty of shots to be had at Bartle Beach if the conditions come together. Bright sun and clean water is a must to find Bubba.

BILLFISH - Not bad, handful of shots a day the norm for those who work at it.

YELLOWFIN TUNA - Hey it is football pre-season, look out for the big guys
under the porpoise in the next few weeks.

DORADO - Looking for dorado these days is like playing a shell game. Pick the
right shark buoy and smiles abound.

ROOSTERFISH - It's summertime and Bubba's back (not sure he ever left). Few
folks on the beach looking, so there is plenty of room for the serious anglers.

JACK CREVALLE - Lots of schoolies under the bait receivers at Punta Colorada
and La Ribera along with tonnage of needlefish.

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

PARGO AND CABRILLA - Las Barracas holding a few, but it’s an early morning

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


Sat., August 23, 2003 Report covers the period Wed.-Fri. (8/20 - 8/22)

IN GENERAL: Shhh! Hear the popping back up in the mangroves? That’s Mr. Snook
beckoning you to a 'Snook Smackdown'. With a couple of fish this week weighing in at an estimated 30- and 34-pounds and another half a dozen smaller ones, this could be a serious event attracting plenty of spectators including red snapper, leopard grouper and the ever present corvina. Looking for a fight? Dive right in and don't forget your Baja Deep Diver!

Out in the Pacific, temps are rising, bait balls are forming, marlin, tuna and dorado are beginning to arrive for the Fall extravaganza to be held in Nov. Don't miss out on the spectacular show. Get a front row seat at Flyrod Marlin 101. Call 800 919 2252 today.

YELLOWTAIL - Plenty of action under the bird schools at the entrada.

CORVINA - Pier, bridge and Power Plant all producing good action.

SNOOK - Best week this year!

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

SIERRA - Pier and bird schools the best place.


Please note the date. We are only providing weekly (not twice a week) reports for this area.

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 day.

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.

Water Temperature 75º-90º
Air Temperature 77°-90º
