4 Ways to Catch Bass in the Rain

4 Ways to Catch Bass in the Rain

 Are you a die hard bass fisherman? Do you want to go out in tough weather conditions but you're unsure of yourself. Here are the top four things you should know before heading out in the rain.

  1. Empty Lake

By empty lake we mean you’ll be the only one out there, which means more fishing spots for you to roam. Stick it out long enough and you might just catch that monster you’ve been after.

  1. Fish the Shallows

Rain washes fresh nutrients in the water and baitfish swarm to the new food source and bass won’t be too far behind. Be sure to anchor your boat and cast parallel to the shoreline. This way you can cover maximum area and increase your chances of getting a bite.

  1. Spinnerbaits

Spinnerbaits are arguably the most versatile lure for bass fishing, especially in the rain. They cover a large area but they also make a disturbance on the surface of the water. This is a sure way to attract bass to your lure.

  1. Water temperature

Water temperature is an important tool to consider while fishing in rainy conditions. The cool rain may drop the water temperature and just a few degrees can make a world of difference in what depth the bass will hanging. Be sure to track the recent and current water temperatures.

Always be cautious while fishing in uncertain conditions. Always wear an appropriate PFD and if you encounter a lightning storm it is always wise to seek shelter.

Top 3 Techniques for Fishing your Live Target

Posted by Scott Sibley on

Recently we sent out a Live Target Yellow Perch in our Random Lure of the Month Aggressive box and we want you to get the most out of your lure.  Here are the top 3 cast and retrieve techniques from the experts at Live Target.

  1. Cast and retrieve the lure with varying speeds.  It performs exceptionally well at slow and fast retrieves.
  2. Cast and retrieve with short and erratic twitch-like motions.  Try twitch-twitch-twitch-pause or twitch-twitch-pause.
  3. Cast the lure and align the retrieve to make contact with various structures such as fallen trees, and grass tips.

The Live Target can also be trolled. It is best to play around with the speed to see what the fish like that day but usually between 3-5 km/h works just fine.

Fish to target with this lure are smallmouth bass, walleye and northern pike.
