How to fish using ReelBass CYCLONE

Fishing for bass using a CYCLONE lure can be an effective technique, especially in certain conditions. Cyclone mimic injured baitfish, and their wobbling action can attract predatory bass. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to fish for bass using a spoon lure:

  1. Use the Right Gear: For bass fishing with spoons, a medium to medium-heavy spinning rod or baitcasting rod is appropriate. Match the rod with a reel that has a smooth drag and spool it with appropriate line, typically in the 10 to 20-pound test range.

  2. Find Suitable Fishing Spots: Look for areas where bass are likely to be present, such as around submerged structures, drop-offs, weed edges, or points. Bass often hide near these structures to ambush prey.

  3. Cast and Retrieve: Cast the spoon out and let it sink to the desired depth before starting your retrieve. You can count down the spoon to a specific depth or let it sink near the bottom. Once it reaches your desired depth, you can retrieve it with various techniques:

    • Steady Retrieve: A slow and steady retrieve works well in many situations. The spoon's wobbling action will attract nearby bass.

    • Lift and Drop: This method involves lifting the spoon with a slight upward jerk and then letting it flutter back down. This mimics an injured baitfish and can trigger bass to strike.

    • Stop-and-Go: Retrieve the spoon with intermittent pauses, allowing it to flutter and fall. This can entice bass to strike when the spoon changes its action.

    • Troll the CYCLONE: If fishing from a boat, you can also troll the spoon behind the boat at a slow speed, covering more water.

  4. Pay Attention to Strikes: Be ready for a strike when the Cyclone is descending. When you feel a strike or see your line twitch, set the hook with a firm and upward rod motion.

  5. Adapt to Conditions: Adjust your fishing techniques based on the water clarity, weather conditions, and the bass's behavior. If one approach doesn't work, be willing to experiment with different retrieve speeds and depths.
