Glenn: Hey, Folks. Glenn May here with BassResource. com, andI’m here with Hank Parker, sitting in hisboat, doing another episode of “Hank Parker’sFishing Tips”. Hank, this question this week, it comes fromDerek from Terre Haute, Indiana. And he wants to know, “How do you fish superclear water deep strip pits for large bass?”Hank: Now is Terre Haute the famous TerreHaute, Indiana?Glenn: Could be, I probably pronounced itthe wrong way because I don’t live there so. . . Hank: Could be University of Indiana. Could be up there, you know, Terre Haute. Glenn: Okay, Terra. . . Hank: Terra Haute. Glenn: Got it, Thanks. Hank: I like that. But I’m not want to correct anybody on grammaror English because I butcher it. I am the world’s worst. I talk like I have mush in my mouth. Glenn: Well, obviously I just did too. Hank: We’re gonna go to with the strip pitsand figure out how to catch those deep fishand those big fish in those strip pits. And there are a lot of them up there aroundTerre. There are a lot of deep, old mining pits,that, let me tell you, that is a tough jobcatching those big bass. When they’re spawning you can get it done,but other than that, in the summer it’s tough. The most effective methods I’ve found is lightline, like six-pound fluorocarbon and sinkingworms, slow sinking worms. And there are several companies and one ofthem is Eco Tungsten. They make a little straddle weight, that youcan wacky-style and put a weight in the centerof the sinking worm, and you get a much fasterfall. And those little legs on a sinking warm, ifit’s wacky-style dead in the center with thatlittle saddle weight, will produce a lot ofgood action in that bait. And throwing it up against those straightvertical banks and letting that thing freefall is a good way to catch those big, bigbass in those strip pits. That’s a tough job, so don’t get me wrong. It takes a lot of patience. Light line and that sinking worm and addingthat weight can be very effective, and probablythe best way I know how to catch them. Hank: We’re talking about how to catch fishon bluff walls, strip pits, and I was talkingabout this little wacky-style weight thatyou can put in the center of sinking wormright here to rig wacky-style. You just throw it and let it freefall, andit’ll fall. It’s got a little bit action. . . not whole lot. . . butthe fish like it. This little weight is made to be insertedin the center of a sinking worm. We’re gonna hook this just like this, we’regonna stick it in, and we’re gonna bring ourhook, we’re gonna put it through. And now we’re got our weight in place. And now these legs at both ends of that baitwill move a lot more, so you can fish it. If the wind comes up and you’re having trouble,throwing and controlling that sinking wormwithout a weight, and the wind’s blowing aloop in your line and it’s not falling right,you can offset it by the weight. And that’s why I have all these differentsize weights, depending on what your needsare. And the wind and the speed you want it tofall, and the depth you’re trying to cover,you’ve got all the variation of sizes andweights and you can just add them at randombased on the circumstances that you’re facedwith. That’s a pretty good little thing and thosetungsten weights, so they’re fairly heavy. And these baits are made by Eco Pro Eco Tungsten.
