I grew up throwing a texas rig plastic worm and it is still one of my favorite techniques. I really like throwing a BIG worm and you will catch bigger bass with this method. I catch 2lber's and 10lber's on this rig and this is what I do with it...enjoy.

Hey Bass Kings! I have been fishing El Cap for the last Month getting ready for the NBW tourney we had on 12/3. Fishing is wild this time of year. It's all about the shad this time of year and finding the right areas with the right school of fish. Also, the "mood" of the bass has been tricky. Some days the eat the scrounger and the next they don't.
The underspin, tailspin, and rapala ice jig have all been really productive. We also have been catching them on the drop shot rig from 20-40ft. Using your electronics is very important this time of year.
Congrats to my buddies John Wick and Art Berry for the 1st place with 16.88lbs. We took 6th with 15.34lbs. Crazy weights for December!

What a nice day. Cool in the morning but it warmed up nicely. Paul from New Jersey and Jon from San Diego had never fished what we all call "the jewel". Kevin took them and had a fun day.
Despite a tough bite and bluebird sky conditions they caught a bunch of fish.
Most fish were caught on the drop shot, c-rig, and jigs out of deep water. They threw the big swimbaits but no takers.
Fishing should be steady and even really good through November December as the Bass feed on trout.

After a couple weeks off I hit the lake with my friend Matt. We had a good day.
Water temp 70 air temp at 6:30am was a cool 54 degrees. The Bass are just changing from Summer into the "Fall season" and are on the shad big time. It was not easy fishing because there is alot of dead water. This is the time of year where I use my electronics alot. There are certain things I am looking for and the conditions need to be just right.
We found them around 8:00 and it was on! Really fun flurry lasted about an hour. We caught a couple on topwater and a few suspended on another bait. Then one drop shot fish a bit later. This time of year can be challenging but I love it!
