Most of the people I see that fishes a plastic worm fishes it way to fast. You want the worm in front of the fish as long as you can to entice it to strike. Some people I see have it back to the boat or shore in about 15 seconds which is way to fast in most cases. These same people do the same thing with topwater.
I fish lily pads topwater and it might take me 5 minutes or more to bring the lure back to me. The thing is, I get strikes and even have people come over and ask me how I catch so many bass when they are catching none. The answer is fish that lure slow!

It said on the news today that Buckeye Lake is full of bad algae and e-coli, gee I wonder why? The lake is only 3 feet deep on the average and people empty their waste from their boats in the lake. Guess what? The State of Ohio doesn’t give a damn just the same way they don’t give a damn about people running their outboards on a trolling motor only lake like Oakthorpe.

Every year I hear of people not replacing their lines. Then I hear how they lost a big fish. Seems logical to me!
I replace my line several times a year. I only use two lines…Fireline and Proline. I have always used Fireline but didn’t use Proline until I talked to a line salesman in Buckeye Outdoors. He said Proline is all he used. I thought if it is good enough for a line salesman that has access to any line then I might want to try it and I did and liked it.
Your line gets more wear and tear on it than anything you use to fish. It gets worn by fish teeth, limbs, bush, rod guides and more. Play it safe and pay attention to your line. Change it!! Don’t lose the biggest fish you ever caught by now changing your line.

Do you know a plastic worm has won more tournaments than all the other lures combined?
Fish it slow and then slower than that!
In murky or stained water, try purple or black. In clear water try a more natural color.
Anglers think a 10 or 12 inch worm is too long, but it is easy for most bass to inhale. It also gives the bass a bigger meal which is what they want without having to exert more energy than necessary. I really like to fish large worms.
On the other hand, if you’re fishing a high pressure lake or one with many boats, try a finesse worm. The bass will be finicky and want something more subtle.
Regardless, of where you fish a plastic worm may be the answer to finding the bass you desire.

Congratulations to Geno and Katrina who won the first Lake Logan tournament of the year. They had 4 bass with a total weight of 6 pounds 4 ounces. Geno also had big bass, over 5 pounds.
It was very cold but warmed up a little later.

Just a reminder…….when fishing a topwater frog make sure it has a white belly. The bass will look up and see it and think it is a shad. KVD
I imagine that will work for about any kind of topwater bait…white belly is in!
