This day started off like many days on the lake – the sky was overcast, the water was choppy and the lake was full of skiers and wave runners. It had been a long while since my last bite on a KVD 1.5 square bill. I chose the KVD because I noticed the shad being chased in 3-5 feet of water.
It didn’t take long for me to get a little discouraged about the fish I was catching – they were small, the bites were short strikes, and greatly spaced out. My confidence was down so I decided to switch it up. I needed something I could flip in grass beds that had erratic action and would hold up in cover. I decided to go with the Warrior Baits Quiver Bug.
The clouds began to make their way over me in a short amount of time so I figured that I would get a few flips in on a couple of key points before the rain started. Since I was fishing shallow, I was looking for sparse grass, which I soon made my way to. Sparse grass is a go-to for me and a key point that I always recommend making few extra casts or flips to. Bass tend to look for an irregular place to feel safe but still have room to chase baitfish. Within just two flips in the thinly dispersed grass, I had a hit. This bass was long and weighed-in at 3 lbs. It was easy to tell that it was a spawned-out female due to the long body, wide shoulders, and skinny belly. Unfortunately, after snapping a few pictures the storm was rolling in cutting my day on the lake short.
The Warrior Baits Quiver Bug is a great option when skirting grass beds or fishing cover. When I am on a pressured body of water or having a slow day, it’s my go-to for that big bite! The Quiver Bug is an extremely versatile and high producing bait. My secret to success with this bait is to either Texas-rig it or pair it with a shaky head, such as a Moaner Hooks Stiffy Jig. If you have not yet tried the Quiver Bug, I strongly recommend it!
