Hey there Bass Heads,

I do not claim to be a master bass angler, but I have been having some really great luck landing the bucket mouths lately. I've heard lots of people having luck with frogs, some with Spooks, but the magic for us has been plastics. To be specific, Culprit Flippin' Craws. The color of choice, Candy Orange. This is one of the nicest looking craws out there. The shape is awesome for pulling through heavy vegetation. It also throws a great deal of vibration through the water, and they hold up well after repeated use.

An awful lot of Bassers will rig these heavy. I recommend a light rigging or no weight. Something like a 1/16 oz bullet on the front works great.

For hooks, try the Daiichi Copperhead Worm Hook, size 3. The great thing about Daiichi hooks are both the sharpness and the angle of the hook. These things are marketed as 7 times sharper than any other hook (a theory I have tested by accident on my hand, but that's another story....ouch) crazy smiley. The angle is perfect for penetrating the plastic on a strike.

Now the most important thing is how to fish it. A lot of bass are holding close to the weeds and pads. When fishing shore lines, try to plop the lure right on shore. Then slowly drop it in and slow reel it across the top and through the weeds. Allow it to drop in any holes and hang on. The hits come fast, but with the Daiichi hooks, you won't miss the sets.

A similar rigging with Culprit Tassel Tail worms, Crawdad color, has been just as effective. Only difference, use a fast retrieve to let the Tassel Tail work. The Tassel Tail will throw a wake like a small buzz bait. Awesome!

Try it and see.

Until next time, "May your livewell be full"

Grape Culprits on Texas rigs has always worked well for me, especially in the Brainerd lakes areas. They are great for dragging through the weeds. Some days, when they are really turned on, I can get 1 hit per cast. Find the edge, let 'er drop, then Wham! smile smiley

Nice to see ya back, Yattering Jack!

Sorry, it's been busy. I'll try to be around more.

Now it's been fishing busy... smile smiley

The Grape Culprits are great but I dip them to put a Chartruese tail on them. I've got more strikes that way.

Great post! I to have great success with a texas rigged craw. In particular I have been doing real well with the NetBait Paca Craw. Green pumpkin or Black and Blue have been proven winners time and time again. I generally go a little heavier though in my presentation. I use a 3/0 Superline EWG Gamakatsu hook and anywhere from a 1/8 to 1/2 ounce Tru Tungsten Bullet weight. (unpegged)

I like to work deep structure with this such as points and ledges. Just throw the lure as far as you can and pull it painfully slow on the bottom. You'll feel the peck and BAM!

Also killer on the weedlines as well. Comes threw the grass real nice.

I am definitely going to try the finesse approach. I really like Yattering Jack's finesse method! Good Post!
