Niugini Bass Spring Fishing Information and Facts
Spinner casts don’t require a lot of effort in order to catch the Niugini Bass, but the fight is incredible.
The Niugini bass spawn in spring in the tropical river systems of New Guinea. Little is known of the spawning details for the niugini bass other than it is a close relative of the black bass. And as such, so many draw their fishing techniques through their knowledge of the black bass spawning habits.
Try the Lively lures Assassin with a vivid blue dorsal and coloured red and yellow along the lower surface. The Reidy’s in black and silver is another good lure for the Niugini Bass.
When trolling deep water, use deep divers such as the Stump Jumpers. We recently came across a site where one particular angler had been told by a friend that the Stump Jumpers were actually a priceless collectors item and to hold onto them. Considering the number of sites that sell these lures, it is unlikely that he is going to get anything for them.
Spinner casts don’t require a lot of effort in order to catch the Niugini Bass, but the fight is incredible. Stop the bait in mid-retrieve and letting it fall to trigger a strike.
Vary the speed of their retrieve to see what the fish like. Use a 3/8 ounce spinner bait when fishing close in to the bank and 1/2 ounce for water three to five feet deep.
As a result of their distribution, niugini bass winter conditions vary little from summer conditions. The Niugini bass is a freshwater fish and a member of the Pacific black basses that can be found in estuaries. Like most bass, including the Pacific black bass, the Niugini Bass are a fierce fighting fish that are well worth the trip to find them.
When fishing shallow tributaries and estuaries, the Sage largemouth Bass fly rod works very well, it is light weight, flexible and if cast properly, it won’t leave a ripple on the water.
For casting, the Daiwa surf rod is strong, capable of casting long distances without too much trouble and allows for a wide range of action.
