How to catch Big fish on Beds spring time at Saguaro lake

[music] nothing like being on the water first at day light the Best the best money can buy I can see my bait coming for 20 feet the water is so clear and you say this is dirty man hey we out a Saguaro lake today fishing with a guest Seth Furmeanek we are just fishing for some bed fish right now starting out we did not have much luck with our swim baits this morning. but right now we are trying some bed baits you know so we have some bright colors on like these white and chartreuse so we are mess with these just to see if can get them to go so we have a big one locked on here maybe 4 or 5 pounds so. so we will see if we can get this thing to hit pretty quick Saguaro lake is the fish have move up in this last week now so ah. they are dropping the water to work on the dam on Saguaro so it is down about probably about 8 or 10 feet so you will see alot of shore line as we move out this is lowest I have seen it in years so we will see what we can do we are just kind of let Seth do his magic here. we will try yeah definitely give it a good go. yeah we have seen a lot of fish on beds this morning a lot 2 and 3 pounders we are trying to look for a bigger one 4, 5 or 6 there is not a lot of bigger ones that have moved up that are holding. they are just swimming around he has a nice one locked on right here. and he is bumping it trying to make it a little bit mad and it is not swimming away it is staying there. so that is a good sign get a different angle switch over on this side where can see it a little better there we go oh much better huh. yah! I can see your bait better even without the glasses that’s why she is rough too. that’s why it is rough because it is deep while you setting there I am going to throw something different on there. see what happens sometimes if you work two baits on one fish you can get them all excited and mixed up oooh! get back, back, back she is nosing down on it. come on eat it. she did for a second when they nose down like that any type of distraction like that will get their attention away nosing down on it. at least she is staying in the bed she is just sitting there watching our baits as it bonces across the bottom she is not swimming around or moving around so that’s a good sign oh! she just had it she just had it she is taking it she is’n’t taking the whole thing she is just geabing the tail end eventually. got her that time! oh look at that. finally [laughter] finally got it little male you can always tell those males they like to pee all over you for some reason little guy some fun in the sun at saguaro. look at him going right back to the nest there she goes. Yeah right back to the bed what you think about trying to get two at once that’s a five pounder back there all day she is not aggressive thou yeah she is look at her coming in. is she coming in oh that’s a good one back..yeah that’s a good one back there Gary. that’s the biggest one so far there’s the male see the male this is the female right here there is three of them now that’s the female. that’s a big female swimming right there she is looking at mine, the female she is nosing down on it. the big one look at that see has the tail look at that oh she’s got yours oh Gary get ready the male, I am ready the male is just.. see I am out of the nest now I need to go back in it that’s a big one Gary that’s a nice one isn’t it alright let’s see if… [small laugh] almost [laughter] I have got a male and a female on this one I know it is hard for you see down in the water but I’ve got two of them we are doubling up on bed fish here. it is kind of weird the male is hanging back but the female has all ready come up and stiffed it that is a big female that Gary is on there guys it is a five pounder all day she is looking you would think the male would take it but he is not try it again got it! got her I got her! [laughter] that’s a nice one get that one in. Oh that’s a nice one that’s 2 and a half..yeah! that did not look like that big of a fish you know it solid two and a half right on the upper part of the lip I have got one here that’s that’s pretty big how about it alright! Gary’s on a big one here as long as I don’t hook em [laughter] well there is a little male and a big female. A big female 4 pounder..5 pounder and they are both interested but I wonder lookat him two fish will take two baits he is nipping the tail what happens with two baits on there.

The female will get agitated that the male is not taking it off and she will come and eat it. watch here she comes guys just a little bed fishing tip right here we got two fish on a bed and see Gary is getting the male to nip at the tail and a lot of times if you get those and they are aggressive both of them on the bed the female and the male an easy way without just catching the male and pulling it and hoping the female gets back on there is to let the male play with it, let him do what ever he wants it until that female gets so mad that the male is not doing his job and she comes up and eats it he is going crazy he is sucking it in and blowing it out now look at her. if you can see what we are seeing she is getting super agitated that is a 4 to 5 pounder Gary that’s a little bit nicer isn’t. yes it is all day look at him now he will come up and watch him he will whoooa! that’s a good sharp turn look at grab the tail on this [laughter] he is just playing with it you would think they would est that lizard you know yep there comes the male oh the males got it oh!

  • …I'm not a big fan of bed fishing…especially for tournament fishing, let alone pleasure fishing. Let the bass have their time without the stress or intervention of humans.

  • bed fishing is a punk way of catching them, might as well snag them…….. leave them alone to do there thing and stop stressing them out…
