Different lures by region??

15 posts in this topic

I have caught hundreds of LMB, on certain buzzbaits and spinners when I lived in PA. After moving to RI, I am using the same lures I used before, and cannot get a hit. I have had to go to different colored spinners, and plastic grubs and crayfish to get action. Anybody got any idea on why that would be?confused.gif

The fish in RI are as messed up as the residents?? headscratch.gif j/k of course.

Color could be a matter of local forage but I catch fish in Canada on the same lures I do here in Jersey.

Same thing happened to me, when I moved from Ohio to California. In ohio, I never caught anything on a jig and pig, but out here, I have caught some real chunkers. I guess its just match the hatch.

Water temp is pretty high here already.How shallow is the water you are fishing?

Well actually I have been fishing from shore for the most part. Seeing as how you are from RI, I am fishing Wilson Reservoir, and wallum lake. The water is warm, but not quite like the bath water in some of the places I fished in PA I did take a +/_ 4 lb LMB from Wallum on Sunday in about 6 feet of water on a chug bug. Actually first LMB I have gotten there. Ususally it is SMB

Wallum is one of the most heavily pressured lakes in the area. I was there on Saturday and managed to put 3 fish in the boat. It's one of the toughest lakes around.

sinking rattle traps only.Keep the rod tip high so it rides about a foot below surface.

I do that a lot with diving plugs. I got 5 LMB last night. One on a rubber crayfish, and 4 on a larhe yellow and chartruese spinner with 2 gold blades. Something I have had for years, and I cannot remember ever catching a fish on it. I tried everything last night. The weapon of choice for the moment is a yellow spinner about 1 hour before dark
