When fishing for bass in deep water try a spinnerbait that you have confidence in and have used to catch fish before. If the fish are inactive try a slow study retrieve. Spinnerbaits as you know, produce a vibration that attracts bass. Use a spinnerbait that has tandem blades and fish from shallow to deep. You can also use smaller blades that will allow the spinnerbait to run deeper. Try a 3/4 to 1 ounce spinnerbait.
Draw bass from farther away than most lures.
Help find the fish faster.
Imitate more kinds of baitfish.
A nice rod for a spinnerbait is a 6 1/2- 7 foot medium/heavy rod. In clear, calm water try a dark color that will not blend in with the sky when a bass sees it from below. Fish can see it better.
Some good colors to try are:
Chartreuse and White,
While most people recommend a spinnerbait for shallow water fishing, once you use this techniques in deep water, it will surely become one of your favorite ways to catch that weary old bass.
Another way you can fish with the spinnerbait in deep water is to use it like a jig. Throw the lure out and then lift your rod 6-12 inches at a time and let it fall back down. I have had success with both of these techniques. As Mikey says "Try It You Might Like It".
