Size, Does It Matter?

Size, Does It Matter?

Here is a younger me and you’re number one, but that’s not my point.

These are typical stocker trout at Lake Piru CA.

Do not doubt, for a minute, that an average size keeper largemouth will have no problem eating these trout. Of course, nor would a Lunker! Open up to the possibilities, and do not get distracted by the trout. 

The lesson here isn’t about California or trout plants. It concerns a predator to prey size relationship that occurs anywhere and everywhere. Be it Hitch at Clear Lake, Gizzard Shad that are prolific in the eastern U.S., or Juvenal Bass that exist wherever Bass can be found. Perch, Bluegill, Rodents, the menu, is long.

I’m referring to the big bait swimbait. Is it a magic bullet, does it work all the time? No of course not, what technique does? But guess what, due to Drawing Power the big bait is more forgiving to presentation mistakes. 

Bass are more forgiving of your big bait ineptitude than just about anything else you present.  That's right, because of the drawing power of the big bait, some days you don’t have to be so perfect. So imagine what might happen when you do things properly. This size correlation is there for you to use to your advantage, exploit it.
