Topic: Diversey Fishing Reports
Spent a couple hours from 2-4pm this afternoon fishing for largemouth bass at Diversey Harbor. Right away I caught a couple smaller fish in the 12" range with a pumpkinseed colored power worm. Both bass came from under the docks.
I continued fishing along the west side of Diversey Harbor looking for any spots where I could drop in my lure. For a good hour nothing was happening for me. I was getting little bites here and there from some bluegill and caught a couple small rock bass, but that wasn't what I was after.
I decided to switch my lure to a watermelon colored senko. I worked the docks pretty hard the first time through, so I tried to work the heavier weed areas on my way back. So that's what I did.
Anywhere I saw a shady area and some heavy weeds is where I tossed my senko. The great thing about fishing a senko is that you don't have to give it that much action to fish it. Simply toss it out and let the lure wobble on its own as it dead drops into the pocket you're fishing.
With this senko fishing technique I came away with a nice 19" largemouth bass that swam up from the bottom, and inhaled my lure. It put up a nice fight with a couple jumps and I thought it was gonna break off my line with the weeds it had dragged me through, but I was lucky enough to land this bass with no problem.
