Chasing Tails Bait & Tackle

September 17, 2018:
Frank at Chasing Tails Bait and Tackle in Oakdale reported that the cooler evenings are here, making bass more active. The morning bite is lit up on the top water with frogs, poppers, ploppers, and walking baits. Jigs, Senkos, wacky rigs, and swim baits are getting smashed up as well. Day time bite is on with the Senkos, jigs, and shaky heads, and at night, they are loving black worms and top water lures. Bill from the shop had a banger evening on Friday, pulling a 2.55-pound largemouth out of a bush on his first cast of a Senko, and having a 3.35 bucket smashed his frog as the sun was setting. Pickerel are super active, prowling for a meal. They are loving anything top water, inline spinners, chatter baits, swim baits, and swim jigs. Panfish are very active, and eating like crazy. Bluegill, perch, and crappie are all schooled up. Carp are out roaming the shallows during the day and are a blast to catch. Chris Dyroff landed his best-ever carp on Thursday, tipping the scales at 20.45 pounds.

Bass are more active, looking for easy meals and some reaction strikes. In the morning, the top water action is great. Frogs, poppers, and ploppers are all getting smoked by aggressive bass. Jigs are putting in heavy work as well, especially in areas with more mats and pads. For a more finesse approach, try Texas rigged soft plastics like Senkos, swim baits, and creature baits. They work great on the bottom and buzzed across the surface. If you're after pickerel, throw something shiny andor moving for a good smash and great fight. Yellow Perch are more active on the jig bite, and the bluegills are big and hungry! Worm and bobber will produce plenty of these fish, and they are lots of fun for the whole family.
