LMB @ webster

Post By: Dangly      Posted: 12/5/2012 11:42:20 AM     Points: 238    
So, I'm doing some self swimbait training and the combination of stockers and LMB in webster has me thinking about it, i know it gets a ton of presure but I'm fairly sure that few swimbaits are thrown there. I'm just wondering has anyone caught LMB there that are big enough to nail a 6" swimbait, I'm not asking for area or anything specific. Just wondering if anyone has caught any in the 14"+ range. If you don't want to post, please e-mail me @ BTW I am Cpr only.

If you Know there lmb in there I promise you there are big enough to eat a 6" bait,just remember the trout are fairly active now so make sure you make your bait active I know people say slow down but the trout aren't lethargic so if you are mimicking trout speed up,work areas near deep water with ambush points.
Happy hunting

"Just wondering if anyone has caught any in the 14"+ range."

Yes and you are on the right track. Think outside the box.

About three yrs ago i caught one that was around 16. Released it. I was fishing the east side by the back way in. I was using a minnow on a bobber chasing perch. Those bass like perch too.

I have caught bass in the 14+ inch range and bigger, they are still in there to this day. I've seen the same one from 2 years ago, and its pretty big but really smart now.

I went there this spring and saw some lunkers. They seem pretty smart since they see meat hunters targeting trout daily. Good luck.

There are some decent ones . There used to be tigers till they redid the lake doubt they put them back in. There are a couple other lakes nearby that have better populations of bass around the area wouldn't stick to just one lake.

Spicey- thanks, buddy
Elkinthebag- yeah I agree, I'm just looking for the combo of stocker trout and LMB, as the swimbait I'm throwing is a trout pattern.
everybody else- thank you for the input.

FYI, rainbow trout swimbaits also work in waters where rainbow trout are not stocked.
