Summer Fishing For Bass with Jigs, Creature Baits, and Plastic Worms!

July 31, 2020 131 No Comments


Summer fishing is easy if you know where to look! Today Matt’s Dad joins us as we target bass near deep water with 3 key summertime techniques. If you want to catch more bass, pay close attention to how the guys use the shaky head worm, jig, and wobble head creature bait to locate bass and dial in the pattern!

The guys haven’t been on Clearlake for months but they start catching fish immediately. If you struggle to find Summer bass, we recommend you go back and revisit our “Where Do Bass Go In Summer” video (linked below). Today the guys targeted chunk rock in 5-15 feet of water but the key was finding these areas with quick access to deep water. If you could find that scenario, the fish were always present. They knew they could get bit on a shaky head and a jig but once fish started coming in the boat, the wobble head was employed to get the bigger bite. 

All 3 of these are simple techniques to use and they will work on your local water. Focus on the shaky head worm to find a consistent bite. Of the 3 techniques, it is the easiest to get bit on day in and day out. If your fish are dialed in on eating crawdads switch to the jig and you’ll almost always see the size of the fish increase. Once you’ve located fish on hard bottom, the wobble head is an incredible technique for catching those “kicker fish” you’re looking for. It will cover water quickly, get big bites, and is very snag resistant.
