Stocking bass and bluegill Posted by: DJP - 10-04-2019, 04:33 PM - Forum: Bass Fishing In General - Replies (7)

Hi bass people,

There is a nice little dam close to my house that I want to put some fish in. It's an irrigation pump dam but has water throughout the year. They flushed it last year and the fish all went into the much larger dam below (100m away), so currently there aren't any fish in it.

I want to restock it with some bass or bluegill from the bottom dam.

Do I introduce the bluegill first and let them settle / spawn for maybe one season or should I just introduce the bass? There are plenty of frogs and other things for the bass to eat so don't think a couple bass will clean up the food supply. The idea will be to have a lunker pond with just big bass, I will cull the small ones by taking them back to the bottom dam. 

Any other good tips for stocking?

Hey guys

I'm pretty new here. I've done some fishing in the past but almost never exclusively for bass.
I'm going to Stanford this weekend and looking for some advice. I know there's bass around there I'm just not sure where. I've heard there's a small dam in the town, there's obviously the river and apparently the Stanford Hills wine estate allows free fishing in their dams. 

I have no idea where in the river to fish, if fishing at the dam is safe and allowed or what lures to use? 

Have any of you guys fished the area and know where to catch? I have had to beg the missus to allow me a few hours to fish so I'm hoping to pull at least a few fish out to make it worth while.

Need a new Fish Finder Lowrance or Garmin? Posted by: abrgrg - 09-11-2019, 01:09 PM - Forum: Bass Boat Equipment - Replies (2)

Hi All, 

Looking at fish finders at the moment and have whittled my options down to the 2 below.

- Garmin ECHOMAP™ Plus 92sv - with GT52HW-TM Transducer
- Lowrance ELITE 9 TI² (3-IN-1 ACTIVE IMAGING) with 3-in-1 Transducer

Pricing wise they are similar and feature wise they are similar.

Any guidance on which one is better taking into consideration image quality, feature quality(i.e which one has better side scan or better down scan imaging) and MAPPING ''quality and options''

Any guidance and advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Shimano SLX baitcast rods Posted by: saflyfish - 08-13-2019, 10:40 AM - Forum: Bass Fishing In General - Replies (7)

Been looking for the Shimano SLX rod in a 7ft MH Fast action.
All dealers only have this config in an Extra Fast action.Not sure why the fast action isnt available locally?
With Shimano rods in general is the Fast action a bit slow hence Normark only bring in the Extra Fast action?
Also if i got the Extra fast acion how would it limit my bass fishing over getting the non available Fast action?
