That works for a lot of people, but most of my bass at SH have been on soft plastic lightly weighted and fished slowly. Weed lines can be good. That said, the last couple of times out I have had a UL rod for panfish and a heavier rod with bass sized plastic and all my fish have come on the light rod and none were bass (odd, because I usually catch a juvie bass or two on the UL and every now and then get surprised by a nice bass). I have been fishing SH about 20 years. SH can be feast or famine on bass and I have had enough fishless days targeting bass exclusively that I don't do it anymore. If the bass bite is hot I stay with it and it earns that reputation every now and then.Constantly casting and reeling (like tournamnent fishing) with no success.
If anyone is going to catch 31 bass on Harris in the summer I would bet money on Turtlestew and Toba and they do it from kayaks not glitter rockets.That sounds about right for Harris. Don't buy into the 31 fish hype, this lake can be tough but worth it when you get an 8 pounder.

I'm not saying you didn't catch them. I am saying it's not a realistic expectation for someone new to the lake to go out and bag 31 fish in an outing. Your results on that lake are not the norm for the majority of us. Most of us aren't going to go out and catch 31 fish in any lake on any day. I think catching a couple a day is much more realistic.You'll have to go back 11 pages on our fish log to get to the beginning of August but count em up if you'd like jg. We had to stop loading at 50 bass (min size 16 inches) because that's all each team is allowed per month.
