3/7/09 Bassmaster weekend series was won on rubber mostly in blood river area,guy had that and holes down south by me ,but due to high winds didnt get down to big sandy.
2 1/2 to 3 fters that day,and generally the rubber is that same green pumkin bushog ive been talking about.
The back end of that is shallow and full of crappie beds.Just a hop skip and a jump from moors upriver towards me.Fish the bushog even shallow on a c rig,if flipping stakebeds use a worm or lizard same color,Other colors are watermelon red.plum,green red fleck,motor oil if turbid.Something like a bass assasin 2.
Secondary points just inside the coves do produce an occasional smallie on jerkbaits or cranks.
Water temp is 51 and climbing slowly.
but the back ends of such are around 55.

hay thanks for the report there Lilmule, 1 question what are you calling a "c rig", a Carolina rig?
March 20th, 2009, 07:33 AM
Yes ,I normally use a fairly long leader of about 2 1/2 to 3 ft,and less sinker 3/8- 1/2 oz than many also an egg sinker not the elongated c rig one or the texas rig arrow shaped.
A very long rod,and its necessary to side sweep the rod on hook set.

Flip in any buckbrush you can find as well. If you have a good topo map and/or HD Maps on your flasher, the banks with deeper water nearby are usually that much better. Also, if you find "yellow flowers" in the water throw spinnerbaits through them as well and HANG ON!!! ;)
SET DA HOOK, :cool:

I'll second the yellow flowers for a locational element.
I fished Kentucky Lake a couple of years ago and all the fish I caught were in the yellow flowers.
Like RA says, fish a spinnerbait through them, but after you've gone through it with a spinnerbait, turn around and go back through it with a texas-rigged, pearl colored Zoom Super Fluke.
The spinnerbait will pick off the active fish, but the Fluke will work slower and get the fish that don't feel like chasing down a fast moving lure.
