Well, here in Virginia USA the dog-days of summer will be ending shortly and it will be time to go out after late summer bass.

Here's my deadly weapon:

Zoom ***** Toad with a 5/0 Matzou long shank wide gap worm hook. Toss it on a lily pad and then pull it off slowly ---- BBBOOOOOOMMM! By far my most productive bait.

I do both conventional tackle and fly, and by far, by a rediculous margin fly fishing using a deer hair "rat" (large sized not the smaller mouse) will take on any other artificial bait 10:1.........The only trouble is you really need an 8 wt. rod or better to get it out there, possibly a 6 yet would have to be very fast acting (stiff) to handle the oversized line. Most come with a mono weed guard if you buy them or make it so if you tie your own....Heave it out into the pads and short 3" jerks............Kaboom baby....Looks like depth charges going off.

Can't toss a fly?...Then a super-spook topwater walking the dog every time........Style not your thing just a heave and crank, still can't beat a Mepps Vibric.

Does anybody remember Bagley's crankbaits.This was probably '76-'80 range.I loved them and had quite a collection,because they worked,I didn't have a single one that didn't have scratches in the paint from the tiny bass teeth.
Landing a 5 pounder,and having marks on the lure to remember it by's,like landing a shot-up plane-only better.

Bagley still makes crankbaits, and they still work great.

I catch a lot of fish on the Bagley's Balsa B. That silver/white shad color works great.

Bagley baits are expensive now, up to $10 each for the rattle models which I prefer.

Chimp,

We use a modified frog out here in CA. We rig it with a special extra hook over the back which weights it so you can walk the dpg perfectly.

I was up at Clear Lake 2 weekends ago and we dig great on dropshot rigs and blades. Got a 6.5 and a 5.5 and a lot of 2-4s.

Esel1964

Around here,we fish in fairly muddy rivers/resevoirs(not by choice),so a low-running crawdad colored bait is a good general choice for when they're down low.
Or chartreuse usually works in shallow/mid depths.

speaking about bass fishing, what fishing reel is your favorite type? I collect old bait casters, and my favorite is a old pflueger reel for bass fishing. no drag, just my thumb.
With everyone feeding their lawn, the run off has really ruined my local river. We call it the green slim, it sticks to every thing, including the line.

My favorite's my Garcia Amb. 4500C(about a '74 model);plus I've got my dad's AMB. GAR. 5000(about a '70 ).As long as they're maintained,they work as good or better,than any reel I've thrown.

Pflueger reels are fantastic. Their new baitcasters and spinning reels are some of the smoothest and best made on the market. Frankly, I think they are underpriced.

As much as I like Pflueger, I don't own any. But may add one next time a buy a rod and reel.

For baitcasters, all my reels are Abu Garcia C4 5600s, and one Abu Garcia C4 6600. I have big hands and can control round baitcasters better than low profile models. I have always owned Abu baitcasters. They are extremely well made. The rods they are on are Browning Medallion GTs from 6 1/2 to 7 feet (from medium to medium-heavy action). The 6600 is on a 7 foot All Star American Classic heavy action flippin stick. In total, I have 5 baitcasting rigs.

I have a lot of spinning rigs. Some of my reels are Shimano, but most are Browning. My favorite is the Brownng Citori, but my Browning Medallion reels are nice, too. I have a small Daiwa reel on a medium light action Shakespeare Ugly stick, and a Bass Pro Shop brand reel (Enticer) on a Bass Pro Shop rod (Bionic Blade) in light action (this is my bluegill rig).

Here's a shopping tip >>> if you shop at Bass Pro Shop, the same company that makes Bass Pro Shop brand reels is the same company that makes Browning Brand reels. So, if you like the Browning name, buy it. But you won't get less reel by buying a Bass Pro Shop brand, though you'll save a few bucks.

Here's my current fishing yacht:

http://members.cox.net/us.fighters/bassboat.jpg

It's Tracker Grizzly all-welded jon 1548 (15' long, 48" wide floor). Got a 9.9 hp 4 stroke Mercury, and a 50# thrust Minn Kota Power Drive trolling motor. The fish finder is an Eagle Fish mark color unit.

It's not much, and it don't go fast, but I fish a lot of smaller lakes with <10hp motor restrictions, where big bass boats are not practical. Even on bigger lakes and rivers, it does well, and I get my boat into places big bass boats can't get - which is a definate advantage.

Isn't it funny how, when we fish from the bank, we cast as far away as we can get, and when we're in the boat, we get as close to shore as we can. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif

Heck, sometimes I cast up on shore and drag my bait into the water.

BTW, I was at Bass Pro Shops last night looking around. I found a rack of books, among them were book on how to catch bass. I don't own any books on bass fishing. But I bet I could write one. I'd write about all the bass I've caught fishing in some manner someone said wouldn't work.

Wild golden shiners and 8" black worms with 4/0 ultrasharp. They catch more fish than all my other ploys put together. My favorite baits, though, are 3/8 oz black jigs w/ pork tails in heavy cover or spinnerbaits when I'm just 'looking' for them.

I have 3 of the older Ambassadeur 5500c, I agree very well made reels. I also have two ABU 6500 that I use for striped bass. Got 2 Shimano, one is the Lew's Speed Spool model, the other is the Bantam 100. Got a Shakespeare President 11, and a few older Pflueger Supreame reels, one of is carved like a fine shotgun, scroll work.

Dark colored Berkly Power Worms 10 to 12" this time of year around here at night. Or a 1/2 to 5/8 oz Single Spin Colorado Blade at night.

Day time Same worms just more sutle colrs like Watermelon Red or pumpkin seed.

But your Frog would of been a welcomed sight back in my Younger days fishing the Upper Mississippi in the Lily pads, We used a Miller Wobbler(spoon) and a uncle josh #11 pork frog to drag around in there. Took a bit of practice to cast it and not punch a hole in the lily.

I like Bagley crankbaits. Their balsa baits are great. But like someone already said, they are expensive. I like Bomber balsa cranks also, but they are likewise expensive. I have quite a few Rapala DT balsa baits, and they are expensive, too.

Balsa makes for a great crankbait, but IMHO really no better than plastic. I have quite few premium balsa baits, but far more traditional plastic baits. I catch many more fish on plastic crankbaits, mainly because I'm more inclined to use them, especially when there is a pretty good chance I'll snag one and lose it.

One lure I'd like to try, which is terribly expensive for a lure is a Lucky Craft Live Pointer. I hear their action is unmatched for realism. But at $20+ bucks a lure, I'd be too afraid of loosing it.

Yep 20 bucks is alot of cash to toss around.

I use alot of Norman Plastic Cranks around here when fishing around chunk rock or in the rivers they are way more durable than the Balsa stuff.

The Rapal fat rap is a bread winner aswell wooden or plastic.

I have so much stuff collected I'm almost ashamed, I find though that a spinnig real light line and finess worms or swiming 3 inch grubs is about the most effective way to catch fish anywhere any time. And you will target all fish not just one kind.

Agreed 100%. I have my favorites, but admit there are better baits. The rubber grub with a twisty tail on a jig head is about the best bait you can throw.

Agreed, but I use them with a safety-pin spinner. My favorite bait, though, is a 4 to 6 inch ringworm which I thread a hook through to come out above the tail. Usually a grape with orange fire tail. Results below.

Bagley's completely disappeared from stores around here in the early '80s(I now know they're still made,as Sky C said),I was bummed.I thought so much of them after I couldn't get more,that as long as it wasn't too cold,I'd go in after them if I got snagged(cut me some slack,I was 20 yr. dumber-and invincicle-I thought).

Then I went to Rapalas and Poe's Super Cedars.I finally wised up,quit using/losing those and went with rebels,bombers,Roadrunners and an occasional Johnson's Swim'n Minnow with pork.

Ok, I think we can share some fish stories now,
When I was a boy, me and my dad were out bass fishing. It was a early summer day, and the sun was just starting to rise above the horizon. We were in a small cove on our local river, a favorite area to fish, for my dad. Anyway, I was looking were to place my next cast. I was kind of watching a bird leave a over hanging limb, to feed on flying bugs. The bird did this maybe 3 or 4 times, when all of sudden a huge bass leaped up 2 or 3 feet out of the water, and swollowed that bird whole. It was one of the coolest things that I have ever seen. I have put in a lot of fishing time since then. Never having that seen repeated, except in salt water, where diving birds would enter the water in a school of feeding bluefish, never to exit. So when ever I make a bad cast, line draped over a twig, I'm always prepared and expecting a flying bass.

I noticed that my Bantam had a hairline crack in the line guide. So I called Shimano in Ca. today, to order a couple of replacements. I was very dissapointed that they no longer stock all of the parts for the 100. The guy seemed to think that the line guide from the model 10 might fit. He is sending to me the two that I asked for. He said that there would be no charge for the parts. Its only a 2.45 dollor item, but it was nice to hear no charge.

I like Shimano spinning reels. I've had some trouble with their baitcasters. I owned a Corado SF, but could never get it to cast right. I took it apart and was amazed at the plastic gearing. I actually took it back and traded for a refund and bought another Abu Garcia. I owned a couple of Corvalus reels, and took those back, too. Shimano's more expensive baitcasters have better gears.

I own a few reels I spent $100 - my Browning Citoris. But other than those, all my reals are in the $65-$90 range. Some o my stuff gets used pretty hard. and i might cry if I whacked a $300 reel on the gunnel of my boat. On top of that, if you buy the right brand, you won't get less by spending less.

It's near the Rappahanock River, which is loaded with striped bass. I would pass through there on my way to a decoy duck festival that used to be held every year (and may still be) in White Stone, Virginia. I have to admit that I'm somewhat envious of people that live in areas like that.

I still have my Shimano Bantam 10XSG with ABU Garcia Hellbender graphite rod. I bought this when I was eleven years old! Still in like new condition after years of fishing in all conditions. The Bantam 10XSG has all metal gears and parts inside. It still has the oversize crank on it that I bought at the Dallas boat show from Jimmy Houston! I kid you not. I also have a shimano spinning reel that I bought from Jimmy as well and I have never used it. My dad was a huge Garcia fan. We argued back and forth for years over which reel was better.

I got a chance to fish on Kerr Resivoir a few years back...got a buddy who lives near Danville.

My absolute favorite bass tactic is Zara Spook...and if that isn't working I prefer some sort of Floating/sinking worm like a Trick worm or Kinami.

Fall and shortening days means new excursions to the Arkansas River and Greer's Ferry Hybrid Stipers here in Arkansas....can hardly wait! Just gotta get rid of these hot days.

By the way....Don't stop at the Bass Pro Reels...I find their poles to be excellent values too. Last several I have purchased have been Bass Pro Models and I've paired a couple of IM8 7' poles with Pflueger reels and they are a beautiful combination.

Anyone ever seen this type of plug before? It's all wood and retains a fair amount of original paint. No makers mark or name to be found. This was in my father's tackle that he left to me. The rear hook was badly corroded and the front hook was broken so I added new ones of the same size. I won't dare use it I was just curious about it. I've looked through a few antique tackle guides and have seen nothing like it. The mouth has faded red paint inside.

Ok, I've had it with this Bass lure and fishing thread.....What's a real test of fishing is going for Suckers which normally run in the spring with Steelhead......

Best bait I've found for them is usually stating .50 calibers flip over Tiger tanks...Though sometimes if you're not getting bites switching to Bf109's can turn with Ki-43's and their 151/20 explosions should make a volcano erupting look mild.

Naturally, if none of that works you have to resort to the absolute deadliest sucker bait of all time......"Goodknight was the best sim ace of all".

Yep, if you're going fishing, have to use the right bait http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Anyone tried fishing with potato mashers? I find that all manner of fish turn up with these babies. Sadly I only have one left.

Well, I don't live around Castaic or anywhere near Claifornia for that matter, but my largest fish (read Bass) on artificial is 12lb 2oz on a 4 acre farm pond near Lakeland with a black Lunkerlure right at dusk. My largest on shiner is 14lb 6oz on the Stickmarsh near Palm Bay. The only thing I own is artificial as I'm not allowed to use anything else in any of the local tournaments, but if you want the BIG ones...shiners rock! I'm not any more of a fishing snob than I am a full-real snob. I like to fish and I like to fly.

Sure is a good looking reel! do you know the year it was made?....Looking at your line guide, looks the same as the 100, I think that I have a good chance, of those replacements model 10 parts, fitting my 100

It was made in 1987. This web page has complete parts listings for all the Shimano reels including your 100. From what I see it does indeed look like the same part. I hope it works out for you. I'm thinking about getting another 10X just for parts on e-Bay.

Yes, I had found the parts page at Shamano site, pre my order. They sure do look alike, I hope it will work. I'm sure that if not, someday I will find a couple.
I don't need them right now, I have been doing a lot of flyroding this summer. Mainly streamers, hair mice, mudder minnow's, and some bass poppers. Great fun, except when a pickerall bites the leader, I tie most of them myself, but I hate to loose a one
