So, really got back into fishing this year. Been doing it a few times since having kids, but now that they are old enough to bait their own hooks, etc, I've actually found myself wanting to fish more. Even bought a couple of new poles and upgraded my tackle. Got this one lake I've been fishing at a lot, with mild success. It's an old gravel pit, with obviously a gravel bottom, and little vegetation to speak of. Some structure to hold the fish, and steep drop offs off the bank, and no telling how deep it is. As for the bass, most of my success has been on shaky worms, and a little better bouncing jigs trailing plastic craws. Weird part is, I've never seen a crawdad anywhere on the lake. Tons of sunfish and it's stocked with trout fry annually. Bass are super spooky if they see you, but I've seen a lot of 12-15 inchers, and a few that have to be 20-24. Since the water is so clear, I've been sticking with green pumpkin or similar colored jigs and shaky worms. Wondering maybe if a sunfish colored jig or even a swim bait might work better. Looking for any advice anyone can give. Willing to try new things as long as it doesn't break the bank.
