without revealing too many of your secrets, what and how do you bed fish? colors, baits techniques.

when i first started fishin bass last year it was spawn time, i could get them to follow but never really bite. now that is bout that time again i wanna make sure i dont mess up again.

Here's a neat approach that can work well...swimbait then jig then finesse worm. Throw the swimbait to piss the fish off (and you might catch the really aggressive ones anyway), switch to the jig for something a little smaller but like a craw (and again, could catch it), then throw the little finesse worm (don't worry about light line...they shouldn't care by this point). Presto, fish in hand!

I have some other methods but only a few know those

1stchild,

imitation craw always work for me.  simple football 1/4 oz and a yamamoto hula grub.  make sure you pick craw colors. 

second like todd said worms, leeches, reapers etc.  don't watch your line if it's deep try to watch the bait and if you see the white of her mouth that means she sucked it up.  Set the hook or you'll miss it.

I've always used a bubble gum colored worm inched up to the bed with a subtle movement.

 If that doesn't produce a strike then slowly drag the worm to the middle of the bed the Bass will either strike it or pick it up and move it within a minute just be prepared to set the hook.

Color matters less most of the time. The only time is when fish are extremely pressured or have been caught multiple times. Bubble gum like backlash mentioned is great since you can see it from a distance. White is another great color. I personally have used mostly natural colors.

You can also piss a fish off by bumping it with your baits. Try not to snag the fish but just keep bumping them then throw something smaller. Great success like that.

Oh, another deadly way to be able to keep the bait on the bed as long as possible is to use a drop shot rig. I would go with a heavier weight and cast beyond the bed. When the bait is in position (but the weight is off the bed) you can keep jigging it up and down for an indefinite amount of time. Use a longer tag with this so you can keep the weight out of the way. If the fish is really tight to the bank cast ON the bank with the weight staying on the bank and your bait going up and down in front of the fish.

Now don't go and beat me if I ever get a chance to fish with you!

Todd

Something else to try that makes bites come easier while bed fishing is to back way off and make a long cast to the bed. Sometimes they seem to get a bit of stage fright when a boat is sitting right on top of them, and it can take a lot of work to get them going. Just line up the bed with a landmark, and throw at it from as far away as you can. Sometimes sinking a stake near the bed and leaving it sticking out to mark it will help you throw to the bed. Something like a tomato stake that you would use in the garden is perfect.

Also, the method of beating the piss out of them with a big swimbait is solid gold. Get a big Hudd or Castaic sinking swimbait, and run it into them until they start getting irritated, then when you have them good and hot, pitch in with something small, and with an open hook. They likely will get it on the first pitch if you got them twisted up right with the big bait.

There's some other stuff that works really well, but you'll figure out your own style after you do it for a while. I personally don't care for sight fishing for bedding bass at all. It bores me to tears, but if I'm in a tournament, I know that it's just stupid to not do it if you run onto a big hen sitting there waiting to go for a boat ride.

it should be illegal.   DOWN SIZE is all u got to do,   im not a fan though those big fish are there to serve a purpose and pressuring them is not cool just my 2 cents.    i got one of my biggest fish off a bed and took damn neared 45 mins.  till she finally took it,   but i think its wrong and stressing them out is what u are doing.  +1 on what revrat said about halling a big female all day in your well just exploding in there
