I will tell you this, the jig bite has been brutal to non-existent lately. I have fished it HARD and can't figure them out. The deep fish are everywhere but lips are wired shut. The only fish I can catch are shallow fish feeding and seem to be packed up a bit. But those packs are TIME oriented right now at Casitas. catch one and the others will follow.

Like Salty Dawg said...the good ones are right where the 5-10" bass are... Key on the baby bass style baits and colors.

Thanks for the advice you guys. I'm out there every other Friday and sometimes the Sunday afternoon of the Friday weekend I don't fish. We really had some great senko, dropshot, and crankbait bites out there from spring to just recently (hey I only got skunked once!). The biggest I've nailed this year is a couple of 6 pounders. Recently, we've been picking up many very small bass no bigger than the crankbait. It's been pretty funny. I've got a 1992 red Skeeter so if you see it, stop by for a chat.

Trying to learn how to jig fish at Casitas can be tough. Florida strain LMB in deep clear structured lakes are not easy to catch and extremely difficult on jigs when they are not targeting crawdads.
You are better off fishing lakes with nortern strain LMB that are far more aggressive striking a jig.
Casitas is known for it's short active feeding periods that last about 20 minutes; be at the right place, right time, with the right lure and good things can happen.
PM your email and I will send an artical on how to fish jigs at Casitas.
PS; Kelly & Eric have shared current on the water information on an open forum, most anglers are tighter lipped than Casitas bass.
