Life on the Edge: Aim for Bumblebees along Flooded Weeds | Sports

Although this year’s bizarre weather does not yet provide stable seasonal weather, there is a chance that warmer temperatures will eventually come and the lakes in the area will experience an explosion of life.

In those that support the growth of weeds under water, large-mouthed perch will apply to the inner and outer sides of this cover from spring to autumn. And if they do an extra heavy jig, wearing a trailer that mimics crayfish can perfectly trigger a bass bite reaction.

For several years, perch enthusiast Deron Eck of Armstrong County has used heavy additives to quickly disassemble the edges of weeds – a place with a high percentage for contact with a large-mouthed perch.

Whether he catches on the deep hills of Lake Erie or jumps the bait ashore under the overhanging limbs of trees, Eck is systematic in his approach. The same goes for the method he uses to treat weed edges.

The Eco system starts with heavy additives – from three-quarters of an ounce to 1.5 ounces – but most often the 1-ounce model. He chooses additives with spherical heads so that they rush to the bottom. He is not looking for a slow descent. He wants the device to reach the bottom quickly. The additive with a board leans against the corresponding big trailer for crayfish or pieces from soft plastic.

Ek tends to make some noise to cause a bass bite that can translate the nose into a finer feed.

“Giving a big jig next to a big mouth is like stepping on a cat’s tail,” Eck said. “The reaction to the erasure is instinctive.”

The methodological methodology of Eco is as follows:

Observing the electronics to keep his boat close to the edge of the weeds, he makes dense throws of a 15-20-foot step to the edge of the lid. Cutting allows you to easily sink to the bottom. Once at the bottom, he winds a slack, then gently substitutes the throw handle under the arm to secure it and serves as a turning point. Grasping the rod by the spool holder, he makes a couple of sharp snaps of the candy, lets him get up for a second or two, removes the slack and uses a couple more sharp additives, and then winds on to the next step. The interval between each pitch is about 10 seconds in duration, unless of course the big mouth intercepts the jig. He keeps the boat in a good clip all the time. So it is not only effective but also effective.

Eco’s heavy jig system requires a sufficient amount of physical effort, as the additives are so heavy and the method is strenuous. To reduce this, he used fishing rods / reels that are well suited for this type of fishing. Fishing rods are 7-foot, high-speed high-quality throws, ie. light in weight to reduce fatigue. To this, he attaches a low-profile bait casting rod loaded with a 20-pound fluorocarbon test cord.
