What are some of the better lures for Rock, I have been fishing for Largemouth Bass for 35 years, the bay is new to me. Any help would be great.

I am relatively new to the Bay as well but have had great luck with Bass Assassins and Bass Kandy Delights (BKD's)

:eek: - I still do not type fast enough to answer this one fully.

Quick version- it boils down to using a lure that matches more/less the size bait/type the Rock are feeding on.

Spring we troll big lures 9-12 inches long to match the Shad/Herring/Menhadden the Rock are feeding on.

Early summer it is smaller lures 3-6 inches.
Late summer it is tiny 2-4 inch lures.
Fall -we start using 3-6 '' again.
Late fall/winter we go back to the bigger stuff.

You can catch a monster on a tiny lure and a 22 incher on a 12 inch lure but it is best to match the lure to the fish.

5 inch BKD's or Stingsilver are great year round as is a 5-6'' Storm type lure.

Somedays the fish key in on one type/color so it pays to experiment.

When Sea Trout were around-big yellow or gold lures fished just off bottom were deadly.Now the Rock won't hardly hit yellow.
