It’s an ideal opportunity to hinder our introduction for fishing as the water cools and look to the dance or a Texas-fixed worm or stomach on those extremely chilly days. Bass will move further as the water cools to build up their winter base of activity. The more profound inlets with a characterized spring channel, longer focuses that drop off into auxiliary or essential brook channels, or a shoreline where the base has a quick drop off, causing a step impact are the best places to begin investigating for activity. The other essential factor that should be in these spots is wood. Bass will in general incline toward wood in the colder months.
You need to discover spring edges with trees along them, tree lines running down focuses into profound water, and stumps or brush heaps along form steps going into profound water. Pontoon docks with wood pilings going into more profound water are additionally acceptable.
On the off chance that movement on the upper finish of the lake starts to hinder it might be a direct result of the water temperature. Go down the lake toward the dam and more profound water. The more profound zones of the lake will cool increasingly slow not influenced as much via air temperature changes from cold fronts as the upper end or shallower zones of the lake. There can be as much as 10 degrees in temperature contrast from the upper finish of the lake to the dam. Attempt to search for the regions with hotter water, it will improve your odds of getting fish.
Dances come in a few unique styles, sizes, hues, and skirt blends. The head shapes incorporate oval, slug, round, football, and the high quality style heads. Most have some sort of weed monitor in a fiber brush, plastic brush, or metal spring to shield the snare from catching as you bring the trap through the spread. The football head should work better in rough territories without getting hung up. I ordinarily lean toward either the slug or oval head.
The greater part of the skirts presently are live elastic or silicone in strong hues or a blend of strands to give you an assortment of hues. The fish scale skirts give the bait an additional element of a fish or shad appearance. The essential hues I would recommend are beat up, dark and green, blue, green or green pumpkin and junebug. These hues hold their shading uprightness in more profound water more than some other shading.
You can include a pork or plastic trailer to give the dance some mass in size and length. Utilize a shading that matches or improves the dance shading. Pork will dry out noticeable all around, so you have to keep it wet.
A 1/2-ounce dance is a decent beginning stage in weight. You have to use as light a load as feasible for the conditions and profundity you are fishing and still have the vibe of the dance as it travels through the spread. In more profound water I’ve utilized something like a 2-ounce dance in wind to keep in touch. You have to feel the dance as it chances upon appendages, shakes, or tangles along the base.
Before you fish the dance you have to hone the snares. After you hone the point, place it daintily on your thumbnail, haul it straight out, it ought not slide at all on the off chance that it is sharp. I likewise prefer to shower my dances with the new Kick’n Bass Anise Shad aroma for included intrigue.
The line you use should be at any rate 17-pound or heavier monofilament and a few fishermen like to utilize meshed line for their dance fishing. The normal bar length for dance fishing is 6-1/2-to 7-1/2-foot, in a medium substantial to overwhelming activity. You need this solidness to get a decent snare set. The reel should be a rapid 6:1 to take up abundance line and to escape from the wood quick to shield from getting wrapped up and losing the catch. I utilize a 6′ 10″, substantial activity Falcon Rod with a Shimano Curado reel and 25-pound Berkley Big Game in Low-Vis Green shading.
Fishing with a dance takes a ton of patients. You not just need to keep in contact with the trap and all that it contacts, however you additionally need to focus on the line as it moves into the water. The bass will snatch the dance on the fall and all that will demonstrate that the bass has the draw is the jerk or development of the line aside, set the snare. Different occasions all you will feel is the dance getting substantial. For reasons unknown bass will get and hold a dance in their mouth without moving or just gradually move away. You commonly don’t get the strike or jolt that you feel with different draws. Attempt to put the dance as near the wood, in any event, knocking the stump.
Work a dance like you would a Texas-fixed worm. Drop the dance past the wood, carry it up to the wood with two or three bounces by lifting the pole a few feet and afterward withdraw, (as from 9:00 to 11:00 o’clock and back to 9:00). At that point take up the abundance line, watching the line as the dance falls. At the point when you get to the wood bounce the dance a couple more occasions, reel in and flip the dance out once more. Work all sides a few times, and afterward move to the following spot.
This has been a short gone through on dance fishing. The most ideal approach to learn is to take only a dance out to the lake and put the entirety of your fixation in imagining the dance as it moves along the base past the wood and into that lunkers mouth.
