Lure suggestions

Postby tallfishman1 » Apr Tue 20, 2010 4:58 pm

I was at LA the other day for an hour and a half with no luck. I was with my friend. We tried everything from hard baits to soft baits. still no luck. My friend pulled out a topwater frog We ended the day with no fish. Anyone have any lure suggestions?

I had a tough time there last week as well, but the success I did have was with a red crawfish pattern rattle-trap. If you noticed, there are TONS of crawdads at that lake, so I think that's a prime forage for the fish there. That might help...also try the rocky shore on the eastern end, that's where I had my luck...

I used to do real well there with a manns baby minus 1. I was there this week and got one on a rattletrap and one on a white spinnerbait.

Last one I got there was on a red spinner. We just got back from there and the lady friend got two decent gills on worms.
