Bed Fishing for Bass

After leaving Casitas country I drove south to Carlsbad just north of San Diego to meet up with the Three Basskateers—Mac Weakley, Jed Dickerson and Mike (Buddha) Winn, who took that 25-plus-pounder from Dixon Lake last year, releasing it without entering it as the new world’s record because it had been hooked in the side just below the dorsal and controversy was rampant. Such foul hooking is easy to do sight fishing. Stay tuned. More reports to follow on fishing these giant bass on the beds and bed edges with these guys.

Bed fishing is something some anglers frown upon. It’s not a slam-dunk believe me. But think about how you might stand on the subject. To bed fish or not.

Let me hear your thoughts!

it has seemed to me that catching a bass on a bed is every bit as hard if not harder than catching them any other time.

Alabama Hunter, I'd say at times fishing the beds is far tougher than what we sometimes call "regular" bass fishing. Often guys make their presentations 20-30 minutes. Unless you're really focused it can get pretty boring, too. Other times, it's a slam dunk. Mainly, some anglers feel it's not an ethical practice, but how about if the fish are quickly photographed and released? I'd like to hear some other opinions here. --Jerry
