Whats the best bait to use for bass in a lake for bass this time of year?

I’ve used beetle spins with success and spinner baits, Is top water any good early in the morning?
I’m in Salt Springs FL I caught about 4 – 2 pounder’s today on beetle spins wondering where the bigger bass hide out lake has no dead wood basically just hydrilla with sand spots I’ve heard there are good size bass in this lake. Just looking for some tip on colors or size of batits to try out tomorrow.

Chosen Answer:

It’s hard to tell about the topwater bite. It is April throughout the country, but not all lakes operate the same duing the same times of the year. What state are you in?

Which belt is better to buy? Heavyweight or Rated R Spinner?

I am confused between two replica belts i.e. Heavyweight & Rated R spinner.. Which one is the best?

Chosen Answer:

If you are die-hard-fan of Edge, then get the Rated R Spinner, the belt is not use in the WWE anymore and they might stop selling the replica in the future and you will lose your chance to have it.

I think the Heavyweight belt will always be on sale, so no need to hurry for that one, you can have it (if you want to) next year.

WHY wasn’t a more seamer friendly pitch created..?

I think I asked this EXACT question around the same time last year, but it still confuses me. Even MORE now that India are playing Sri Lanka.

Why has another flat pitch that will spin later been produced?

India have Zaheer Khan who is probably the best seam/swing bowler in the world, they have Ishant Sharma who is a young talent and very capable of moving the ball in seaming conditions.

They are facing Sri Lanka, a team who generally struggle away from home on any pitch that has a bit of movement in it.

India’s best spinner Harbhajan Singh is out of form, and their second spinner Amit Misrah hasn’t played a First Class match for 6 months. Whilst the opposition have Muttiah Muralitharan the most successful spin bowler in the history of the game.

So why?????
I understand that creating a seamer friendly pitch in India is tough, but I would do everything in my power if I was creating the pitch, to allow help for the seamers.

Unless of course Totti is right, and they are under instructions to make it a 5 day pitch!. Which of course brings me to the facts that Test Cricket is dying because of reasons like these

Chosen Answer:

I know its sickening, and the curators should be asked to break this “trend” by the BCCI, but then again, they want to make sure the telecasters get full 5 days coverage (yeah even if it turns out be a dull boring match).

t20 wc 2010 previews of each team by me(non biased)?

the t20 world cup 2010 will be extremely tough because evryteam looks in very good form and all teams have vey good players

afghanistan:
they will definetely not win this year because its their first world cup and they are a new team

ireland:
ireland wont win because they dont have any good bowlers

zimbabwe:
zimbabwe have a chance of getting into the super eight because they have over 7 spinners and spinners are very usefull in t20 because of their econimy rate. they dont have any good seamers or any good batting though

bangladesh:
bangladesh are a very good team and they are really good in t20 because they have loads of spinners( spinners mostly dont give too many runs) and they have a very strong batting line up. but the biggest problem with bangladesh is that they are in the toughest group.

south africa:
south africa have a chance because they have one of the best fielding, they have good seamers, good batsmen but their spinners are rubbish

india:
india have a very strong batting line up and but their bowling is very bad and their fielding needs to improve.

west indies:
west indies have a great chance of winning because of home advantage. they have a good batting line up with the likes of gayle and pollard. their fast bowling is extremely deadly at home and their main spinner ( suliemen benn) is in good form so they are likely to get in the semi finals

sri lanka:
they have a very good chance because they are a very good allround team in t20. they have the best opening pair in t20 ( dilshan and jayasury) but after sangakara theyre middle order is weak. they have one of the best bowling with the likes of mendis and very good pace bowling with malinga and kulasekkera.

new zealand:
newzealand look are also favs becuase they are a very similar team to sri lanka; they have very good batting with the likes of brendon mccullum and ross taylor and their pace bowling is very good with the likes of shane bond and tim southee. they also have one of the best spinner ( daniel vettori)

australia:
australia look really strong aswell with one of the best fielding but their batting is weak in t20s. their pace bowling is their speciality in t20 with the likes of shaun tait,dirk nannes,brett lee and mitchell johnson but they have weak spinners. in my opinion they should have put shane warne instead of nathan hauritz even though warne is like 40.

england:
england have a very good chance of winning an in my opinion they are they best allround team in t20 with one of the best fielding, one of the strongest batting with the likes of morgan, kp and colling wood. they also have one of the best bowling line up and they have one of the best spinners of right now ( grame swanne)

pakistan( my team):
pakistan are one of the favs with very good batting with the likes of afridi,young umar akmal , misbah and razzaq and we have the strongest bowling line up with the likes of umar gul muhammad asif and young muhammad amir. we also have the best spinning pair in t20 ( and odis) saeed ajmal and shahid afridi.

pakistan will win the t20 wc 2010 inshallah.

What kind of spinners work best in the winter months?

I am a massive fan of Mepps spinners and I find them very productive lures to use during the warmer months of the year, however when the winter arrives and the temperature plummets I really struggle to catch pike and perch on the spinner in the winter.

After doing some quick research, the general consensus about winter lure fishing here in the UK where I live, is that the best way to fish is very deep and very slow. The problem is that although it is possible to retrieve a spinner very deep, it is not really possible to retrieve a spinner slowly as this tends to stops the spinner blade from rotating properly.

I love using spinners, but last winter was so unproductive on the spinner that it became a bit soul destroying, so if anyone has any ideas about good pike/perch spinners to use during the winter months, then it would be much appreciated.

Chosen Answer:

Pike etc are much more sluggish in the winter, so don’t use spinners. Use slow sinking lures that can be retrieved very slowly. I love Savage Gear 4Play lures. If the water is coloured, use bright colours to increase visibility.

I never have as much regular sucess with lures in the winter as I do in the summer, although I have had a few absolutely dynamite days. You are certainly going to have blank days.

One thing you may want to try to increase your chances when going out with your rods for a walk on a winter’s day is also to take a deadbait float rod with you. When you find a likely looking spot sling out the lures a few times. If you have no joy then lob in the float setup and give it 15 minutes. If you still have no success, then move on. Combining the two methods doubles your chances.
