Actually for Black Bass (one very good lure is Rattlesnake and Baby Rattlesnake, by Grande Bass lure company, here in Texas if you don't use live bait; I use these "wacky rigged" they are the best I ever used in "Plastic worms" http://www.grandebass.com/gb93t/store/c ... roduct=213
A record sized Bass was caught on this one on "shaky heads", http://www.grandebass.com/gb93t/store/c ... roduct=183
I kayak fish and know a fellow kayak fisherman, Shane, using live bait
, but I don't.
Here's Shane with 14 photos (click Next above the photo)Kayak Fishing Guide Catches 10-Pound Largemouth Bass On Live Rattler in Texas' Brazos Riverhttp://www.fieldandstream.com/photos/ga ... h-bass-liv(Don't try this at home, Shane is a little bit crazy IMHO, and in the opinion of several other Kayakers who know him better than I do)
And the momma? //// Tastes like chicken my dad told me, though I've not yet had opportunity to eat one.
I have no affiliation with anyone mentioned above, and no affinity to rattlesnakes, except plastic ones.
