I use to love watching these old fishing shows with Roland Martin, I wonder if he’s still on. In this little clip, Roland Martin catches bass under weed mats at Lake Okeechobee. I really don’t suggest doing this because you have to have really strong line, braided line is almost a must. Because if you don’t monofilament will just snap. He picks up some real large lunker bass in this lake.
Here’s what the Berkley Powerbait worm looks like on the Mepps Spinner, just like I mentioned in a previous post on my blog, this fishing lure is dynamite for catching Bass. You can jig it, fish it through the weeds by covering up the hook with the worm, and fish it fast to show off the blade. I usually fish it in shallow areas of lakes and ponds, but if you attach a weight or heavier bead to the lure you’ll be able to fish it in deeper spots.
Next outing will be at Lakeville Lake in Lakeville, Michigan. I haven’t been there before, but my parents have told me it’s a really nice lake. It’s about 10 minutes away from my sister’s place, supposedly it holds some fish in there. I guess we will find out when we go. A fishing trip like this is always exciting for me because you never know what kind of fish you’re going to catch. It would be really cool if the lake had some trout in there, I haven’t caught a trout in a very long time. I’m sure we’ll catch a few largemouth bass, if it’s deep enough like Kent Lake, maybe some smallmouth bass too.
