Tip&Trick Description 1: Muddy Water Baits
By Steve VonBrandt
Nothing ruins the occasional fishing trip more than driving a long distance to your favorite spot, only to find out its been raining for the last few weeks and the water is the color of Chocolate milk! Many years ago, I was like most weekend anglers, and would immediately try to find another lake or river that might be a little more clear, or just turn around and go home. But I found over the last 20 years, that it isnt necessary to give up so quickly on muddy water.

There are many times when a creek arm, or a certain portion of the lake or river isnt as muddy, or there is a transition zone where it goes from muddy to stained, which can be a good area, but, even if there is no clearer water, there are many things you can do. Most gamefish react the same way to muddy water, they go shallow and they move closer to structure. This could mean a lot of different types of structure, such as brushpiles, laydowns, rocks, stump fields, pads on shallow flats, anything! When the bas are holding tight to cover, because of low visibility, the lure presentations sometimes need to be precise, such as when flipping a log or tree roots with a jig. Bellow are the 6 basic choices you should have rigged for fishing muddy waters.

Plastic Worms: I know this sounds like a strange choice, but a lot of times when bass are holding real tight to cover, a larger, bulkier worm, with some rattle inserted, possibly with a paddle tail, worked real close in the cover, can work well. I used a black or a black/red combination in muddy water. I also use the new Big 7 inch Senko that is out now, and drop it right into heavier cover. I have been using the new Cut-Tail worm for this also.

Vibrating Rattlers: These baits such as the Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap, Cotton Bordell, Diamond Shad, or the Rattlin Rapalas, are excellent choices for probing different depths of muddy water, and where muddy changes to stained. The noise and vibrations of these baits, along with a realistic shad shape, make these great baits and stained to muddy water.

Crankbaits: I use a lot of the real fat bodied crankbaits in muddy water. I choose different baits with a wide wobble, and sometimes rattles. I usually stay with darker colors with red in muddy water. These colors with a wide wobble, are easier for bass to find.

Spinnerbaits: The bass will be using their lateral line more in the muddy water, so a spinnerbait with a heavy pulse such as a Terminator night bait, with a black skirt, and Colorado blade, is a perfect choice. You could even add rattles to this bait, which I have had success with in the muddy rivers and lakes in the Northeast. I always use a single Colorado blade on the spinner baits in muddy water, but in stained, or warmer stained water, I do go to an Oklahoma Blade sometimes with good results.

Topwaters: These are my favorite baits to use in muddy water. There are so many baits that shallow, muddy water bass will hit! The buzzbait worked slowly around cover will draw tremendous strikes. The walking type baits, such as a Zara Spook, and Fenwick walking baits, Jitterbugs, Crazy Crawlers, and a variety of other topwaters, including poppers with rattles, are excellent and exciting choices for muddy water bass. The bass will all be in water that is 1-4 feet deep, eliminating a lot of the water, making them easier to catch!

Jigs: Jigs in Brown/Black or Blue/Black with a Zoom or uncle Josh trailer, with some rattles, are an excellent choice to flip into laydowns, and shallow stump fields, and of course on docks. Make repeated casts to give them a good look and provoke them.

If you stick with these baits and methods the next time you run into muddy water, you will never be afraid to see it again. It will become a friend, as it has become to me.

Capt. George Landrum
'Fly Hooker' Sportfishing




Brad Meigs, his father-in-law Fred Tedtow (former charter captain on the east coast
for 20 years, now a young 82 years of age) and Brads friends Brian and John fished
aboard the Fly Hooker with Juan and myself today. It was Sunday and Manuels day
off. The relief deckhand we normally use, Phillipe, never showed up and did not
answer his phone, so I was the designated Deckhand! Not a bad deal since I seem to
rarely get a chance to get out and fish now days. We headed south for 16 miles before
we put lines in the water and we never saw a Porpoise the whole day out! Now I was
worried, since almost all the fish the guys had been catching had been with the
porpoise, but we seemed to do all right without them around, although we did not get as
many Yellowfin as we would have liked to. In all, we only came up with three Yellowfin
Tuna, the first fish of the day was one of them, and the smallest as well. That fish
would have been lucky to push the scales to 8 pounds, but we kept him, the first fish of
the day after all! As the trip went along we kept getting blind strikes, in the middle of
nowhere and for no apparent reason we could figure out. Two more Yellowfin were
hooked up and kept, both fish around 15 pounds. The bite on Bonita was steady as
well and most of them were larger, stronger fish. A 20 pound Bonita puts up a heck of
a fight, and if bled right away they are good eating as well! We kept about six of the
Bonita and released about 10 or 12 more. Not a bad day on the water and I ran the
Penn 12T as well, and the light tackle was a blast on the football fish! Thanks guys!


Fred Tedtow and Bob Gaede (Bob fished with us on Saturday, Fred fished with us
yesterday) went out today with Juan and Manuel and were able to get into some
Yellowfin. Early in the trip Bob hooked up with a Dorado that was around 20 pounds
and had a good time with that. Later they found the Porpoise and were able to get a
few fish that were actually large enough to supply some decent fillets. I believe that
they kept about six of the Yellowfin with the largest one being around 20 pounds, and
they released a bunch more. Not a bad day on the water and two strangers got to
know each other!


Alan McVey and his fiance Laurie Kellogg were our anglers for the day, and Alan
brought along a couple of his own rods and reels to use on football Tuna or Dorado.
Manuel had a death in the family and had to leave last night for Ensenada so we
needed a relief deckhand for the day, and possibly for the week, depending on how
long he was going to be needed up there. Juan was able to get Bernardo on short
notice, but since Bernardo has never worked our boat before and I dont know him or
how he is with people, I went along as well. We headed straight south for 4 miles
before we put lines in the water, and not until we reached 4.5 miles did we have the
first strike. The fish were close to the Cape for a change and there were Porpoise
everywhere! None of the fish were really large, most of them footballs and only a few
in the 15-20 pound class, but on Alans lighter rod and reel and on my Penn 12T
everyone had a blast. On occasion we had five fish on at once! We ended up keeping
6 of the biggest Yellowfin and released at least nine more, as well as quite a few
Bonita. A great time was had, and we saw lots of Porpoise, a couple of Turtles and a
few seals! Laurie spotted a Striped Marlin before we did but the fish went down when
we got close and did not take a bait. Thanks guys, we are glad you had a great time!


Warren Leisi, his wife, son and two daughters are return clients and they are all
fishermen. They booked today and they have also reserved Monday for another trip
out on the Fly Hooker. Juan and Bernardo decide that they should try and make it out
to the San Jaime banks this morning since Juans brother had done very well on
Yellowfin Tuna out there yesterday. Well, the wind blew all night long and really
pushed up the swells and the chop, and it was still blowing this morning when they left.
After about an hour they gave it up when people started to fall down in the cockpit due
to the rough water. Juan turned downswell and came toward the 95 spot area and then
after several hours had a report on the radio of a kelp paddy found about 5 miles past
the 95 spot that had Wahoo and Dorado on it. Of course, everyone else heard the
information on the radio as well so the Fly Hooker was about the 15th boat there!
Even so, they were able to get bit by a Wahoo on live bait, but the Hoo took the hook
with him! A little later they also had a Dorado bite, but it did not hook up well and they
lost the chance. That was it for the day, but Monday is another chance! Lets keep our
fingers crossed that the warm water stays close and the winds die down!


Paul Watts, his close friend from England named Steve and a buddy named Tom
were our anglers on the Fly Hooker today. It was supposed to be a trip for Steve,
since he had never caught a Marlin before, or any large saltwater fish for that matter.
Paul was a little worried about getting into rough water since he is recovering from a
broken rib, but the water was fairly calm. He did say that after the trip he felt as if he
had spent 8 hours working out since every little movement of the boat brought him
some pain. Juan and Bernardo Started out just outside of Punta Ballena and then
worked their way offshore about 12 miles, then down around the Palmilla area and then
back. There was a very brief fight with a Dorado estimated at 30 pounds, and Tom was
the angler on that fish. That was early in the trip. As the day wore on they spotted
more fish but were not able to get into any of them. Not until the last few hours were
they able to find a fish that was hungry, and that fish bit on a dead Caballito rigged and
run way back on the bridge rod. Again, Tom was the first angler to the rod and it took
him around 15 minutes to bring the fish to the side of the boat for pictures and a
release. That was all for the day for them, but it was a good day all in all, except for
Paul and his ribs. Thanks guys, and Steve, perhaps you will have a chance to return to
our area for another shot at a Striped Marlin one of these days.


Kirt, Larry and their wives were our anglers aboard the Fly Hooker today for a half
day trip. This was their first time to do any of this style of deep sea fishing, their
previous experiences had been on the Oregon Coast out of Depoe Bay for rockfish and
they were not really sure what to expect. Mary warned them to be sure and get plenty
of sleep and stay away from excess consumption of Tequila the night before and they
followed those instructions very well. When we met them at the dock this morning (they
were there ahead of us!) we took them down to the boat and introduced them to Juan
and his nephew. After the introductions and a quick explanation of what to expect they
were on their way. Kirt and Larry had told us that they did not want to get into any
rough water as they were not sure if the ladies would be able to handle it, and that was
just fine as the fishing just off the coast on the Sea of Cortez has been going off for the
last several days, and the water has been calm. Juan started off just outside of Cabo
bay as there was a large pod of porpoise there. Let me make a long story short here.
They ended up having seven Striped Marlin come up into the pattern. One they caught
and released on a dead bait rigged behind a blue and white Islander lure, run wayyyyy
back, another one they lost at the side of the boat when the line broke just before they
were able to grab the leader, another one ate a live bait but came off after about a 5
minute fight. The other four fish just were window shopping and did not strike anything.
The dead bait fish and the lure fish were a double header! They also caught and
released a Skipjack Tuna. Not bad at all for a half day of fishing, huh? Congratulations
all the way around, and we were happy to be able to get another boat for you to fish on
for Monday since we are already booked. Have fun!
