I was fishing bass the other day. I really am new to it. Pretty new to specific species targeting in general. Anyhow, I was using a small perch rap that dives about 12 feet, or to the bottom in most places. I have been slowly reeling and every 2 or 3 revolutions give the pole a pop. No luck.
I did this with a rainbow colored top thing as well. And this lure that looks like a mouse made of rabbit fur. No luck. I also tried a slow steady retrieve.
What is the best method of retrieve on your lure.
I did catch small baby bass with a carolina rigged purple twister worm on a chartreuse jig head. I was retreiving slow and popping it up every once in a while.
Again Bass Gods of FXR which method works best for the "budget" fisher. No float tube or boat or pontoon...or friends...sniff...sniff.
I do have waders, and cheap fly gear and a shimano sahara 4500 spin cast and a graphite pole.
Not to worry, I never keep what I catch. Your techniques will benefit humanity...and me.
