can get tough in the dog days of summer. Bites seem to be further
and farther in-between and the big ones can disappear. This is a
great time to breakout the Bass Stoppers from K&E Tackle. Casting
along weed edges and breaks can be a very effective way to catch
wary bass and the Stopper worm can be your ticket to success.
The typical summer time rig will consist of a Bass Stopper or Magnum
worm in your favorite color. If you don't have a favorite color,
purple with a white stripe or a natural color are always a good
choice. Use this rig with a swivel and be sure to add a small weight
up about 18" from your worm. The cast a weights from K&E work great
for this application. They're specifically made to go through the
weeds better and hold tight. Weather conditions and depth of water
will determine your weight size.
After getting rigged up you'll want to start casting parallel to
weed edges and breaks. Sunken islands, points and inside turns are
another great location to target bass with the stopper worm. There
are several ways to fish this rig. You can cast out and let the worm
sink to the bottom and slowly retrieve back to the boat. You can
cast out and let it sink halfway to the bottom and then start your
retrieve. Try these different ways and your own and see what works
best for you.
Also, with precision casting you can get away with using a
non-weedless worm. For the anglers who love to get right in the
weeds and go after them you can also choose a weedless worm.
Weedless worms come in both the Stopper size and Magnum in all of
the best colors. So what are you waiting for, get out there and make
it a Stopper summer.....
