5 reviews for 4.5″ & 6″ Culprit Worm

    July and August brings hot water to most of the country.  You must adapt your tactics to keep catching bass.  Before you can understand what to do in July and August you’ve got to take a look at where they were in June.  June is typically the month the bass are apt to be the deepest with no thermocline forming yet.  By the time July rolls around it has been hot for so long that a thermocline is likely to have formed in your lake.  You want to make sure you fish above this level.  For many lakes it could be as deep as 20 ft, but others, especially small lakes and ponds it could be as shallow as just 3 ft.  Keep in mind you may be fishing to deep in the summer if you are not getting bites.

    In July and August I like to try four totally different techniques to find out what the bass are doing.
    The first is big 10 and 12 inch Culprit worms on creek channel ledges that I believe are shallower than the thermocline.  You can still find big schools of bass in late summer so it is worth a shot.  I like 15lb Flourocarbon and heavy action 7′ or longer Daiwa rods like Steez or Zillion.
    If the fish are not biting good or are suspended I like to rip a jig off the bottom.  I use 1/2 or 3/4 and aggressively snap it off the bottom in order to get reactions out the bass.  After you rip it let it fall back on a semi slack line.  Most bass bite at the top of the rip when it pauses.  I like to use a Culprit Tailgate Special trailer on my jigs for this.
    The third thing I try is going shallow especially if you can find moving water or dingy water.  My favorite is the Fat Max with a 5/16 sinker and 4/0 hook.  This worm penetrates cover well and gives the fish a nice sized meal.  I like to flip shallow water willow, logs, brush, and beaver huts with this bait.  If you go up a creek — key on the outside bends this is where they deepest water will be.
    Sometimes they just want Topwater in the summer so I have a Culprit Frog or Topwater Shad handy as well, especially early and late in the day.  The Frog is good if there are shallow weeds and the Shad could be good anytime.

    In June and July big Culprit worms dominate.  The 10 and 12 inchers are my first choice for catching big bass in their summer hangouts.  In most lakes offshore drops anywhere from 5 to 20ft is where most of the bass spend their summers.  You can certainly still catch them beating the banks, but offshore is where most of the bass are.  Search places where creek channels drain into the main river channel, bends in the channels, shell beds, road beds, bridges, points and other major structures to locate big schools of bass.  Current is often the key on these structures to make the fish active.  Keep in mind if there is no current for long periods of time, a thermocline may develop and you want to fish above it.
    Follow up:
    Fish the big worms on 1/2 to 1oz Texas rigs with 15lb fluorocarbon for better feel.  I like dark colors for the deep water.  Use long heavy action rods to get good hook sets in the deep water.  You can also search these deep water fish with heavy football head jigs with the Culprit Tailgate Special as a trailer.  The wild action and vibration of this trailer can trigger inactive bass to bite.
    If you still prefer to fish shallow head to the dirtiest water possible preferably with current and flip the new Creature Craw  and Fat Max worms into heavy cover.  You won’t catch hundred a day like you can offshore, but you can have solid days and have lots of fun.  The best places to do this are the backs of major creeks and up the main river of most reservoirs.

    If I can’t see the beds, and the water is stained, I just slowly fish the Culprit Fat Max worm in areas I believe bass are likely to be on beds.  I really like to key on stumps.  I’ll pitch the Culprit Fat Max with a 1/4 to 3/8 weight and heavy line.
    At any time in the spring you can get a big front.  This is when I pull out the flipping stick and seek heavy cover near spawning areas.  I really like the Culprit Fat Max and Culprit Creature Craw here.  You may need a heavy weight to penetrate this cover.  It can be anything from a mat of weeds to a big tree, if the fish have not dropped their eggs yet, they will hide in the nastiest cover during a bad front. I also like to Carolina rig a Culprit 10” Original worm on points for the big females moving back out.

    If the water is clear enough you can sight fish for them.  Get up shallow and just troll until you spot one.  Toss out a buoy marking the bed and come back about 5 or 10 minutes later after it has settled down.  Try repeated casts with various plastics until you figure out what makes them mad.  Often times a big lure like a 12″ Culprit worm will get them defensive and ready to attack.
