We just don't need those old lures anymore, do we? We have these new fangled lures that catch fish and do about everything we need any lure to do. Just look at the new finishes compared to the old lures, the new blades on spinnerbaits and buzzbaits. And look at the color of the new worms we have now, why would we ever need anything else? Why in the world would we ever use those old lures? I can tell you why ... they catch fish!!

Well, wait a minute, Jim and I have caught thousands of bass on this lure. We have caught 7, 8, and 9 pound fish and never bent the hook. Maybe, just maybe, something else bent the hook besides a big bass on this other anglers lure. So, why did I quit using the Kelly's Stripe? I don't know! I just don't know! I really don't care that the pro's aren't using them, they caught bass for me. I don't care if they are already rigged with hooks, they caught bass for me. Here's the bottom line ... they caught bass for me!

Here is my point with all of this, if the lure caught bass for you, why aren't you using it? Just because it is old doesn't mean that lure that used to be your favorite still doesn't catch bass. It caught bass for you all those years you used it. And really? Really? Are the new lures any better or are they just newer? Do they really catch more bass? I doubt it! If they do it is probably because you are fishing them more than your old lure. That old lure was great in it's time, wasn't it? Well, guess what? It is still a great lure and still catches bass.

The social behavior of fish, although not as complicated as other animals, can amaze you! They depend on edges like people depend on roads to move around. Fishing is not all about fishing line knots, if you've heard of the phrase "you have to think like one of them," then that's exactly what I want you to do here. Edges are typically their source of food, shelter and spawning areas. This has been proven in various fisheries studies and in one study, the fish was placed in a round tank and then a black electrical tape was ran along the bottom. The result was fascinating! The fish immediately recognized the line and each time it ventured away to feed it would always return to the line as if it was its personal safe haven. This research was featured in The National Geographic Channel as well as the Pursuit Channel on Roku.

The weedline is where longtime anglers usually work their lures and fishing line knots on, because it is parallel to edges and is a very good spot. Remember always to start from the outer rims of the edge in order to avoid scaring the fish away. Water is one of the most noise-conductive substances in the universe and even if fishes don't have a sense of hearing, they are extremely sensitive to the vibrations that it causes. Make a splash in the water and say goodbye to your would have been bass and walleyes catch of the day.

The northern pike which grows up to 45 inches long is just among the reasons why you should go to places like this. That kind of a catch will remain with you for life and believe you me, every catch is a different excitement.
