I agree with this too, but the flies I like to use for bass are large poppers with rubber legs.Rottal said:Yeah, to be honest thats most likely the best bet i think. ive seen guys catch trout on wooley buggers under bubbles, but bass might be a bit more difficult...infact you might have more bass hitting your bubble that the fly tied below it. i would say stick to the soft plastics or a rapala if youre limited to spinning gear...
but, if you want to try....let us know how it worked for you.
You will catch some nice size bluegills too.Wind Knot said:A great and very fun fly to Bass fish with is a popper. Its a surface fly that you slam down on the water and do fast jerky intermitten line stripping on ---- you are imitating an injured insect/frog/what ever. The more noise and splash you make with it, the better! It is like a dinner bell for bass. Of course you need to do it in an area that is not really deep typically.
That person was right, usually if there is a bass there and a worm falls infront of him he is going to hit it.BubbleFlyGuy said:Okay -- many thanks, folks. I'll try out a few things: got a nice grasshopper thingy, and some jigs, and a spinner or two, and a plastic worm -- someone told me once that dropping a worm in or near underwater trees and letting it sink tends to attract bass attention. I'll experiment and letcha know. Thanks again.
