Are you a one trick pony?
« on: June 12, 2018, 06:31:10 PM »

I consider myself a one trick pony.

But that means I throw the same style of baits in every tourney.
Depending on water temp, I usually throw a topwater at first if no hits on it then quickly to a jig or T-rig.
If neither of those get hit then its to flukes and swimbaits.
All three of these serve a purpose to find out speed and depth. Also I have confidence in every one of these techniques.
If the bite dies then it is back through the whole procession.

I generally start out being a junk fisherman until the fish tell me what they want.  But there have been times when I just picked up my flipping stick and stayed with it all trip long.

There were true "one trick" ponies on the early tours. An angler would pitch a jig every cast, every day, every tournament. Others used a spinnerbait or crank the same way. All the tourneys were in skinny water during prime spring and fall periods.

I was thinking about this earlier. And I feel comfortable throwing more baits than others but I came to the conclusion that I'm not a one trick pony. I do have more luck fishing a finesse style on bait casting gear. Maybe that's my forte? I do usually start out with moving baits, top water, swimbaits chatterbaits and move from there.

I don't think I was ever a one trick pony.  With that said you could have bet I was fishing a TR work and been right the majority of the time. I also used jigs, crankbaits, spinner baits and topwaters. I had confidence in all those depending on conditions and the bass.
Like you said, bite stops and back to square one.

I wouldn’t consider myself a one trick pony but I certainly have more success with finesse fishing over other techniques. I’m sure that has a lot to do with the waters I fish, but I am always trying different techniques, lures, and fishing styles.
