The Online Source for Washington Fishing Information
So I am new to bass fishing in washington state and was wondering where I should be fishing and what lures I should be throwing during this season into the fall?

Thanks Jordan! I have 2 Med/Heavy 7'6's with 50lb braid will that work?
For catching numbers I'd say you are on the right track with the senko and soft plastic approach. Every once in a while those baits will fool some big ones too but the majority of your catch will be on the smaller end. This is especially the case with the dropshot rig, not to say it won't catch some good ones, but you will be weeding through small fish.
If it's the big ones you are after and you don't mind committing to a day when you're looking for a few bites, the Booyah "pad crasher" frog will get you some bigger bites and alot of fun when they eat it. Make sure you are equipped for that type of fishing though. A "Frog Setup" or at minimum a 7'-7'6 heavy action rod with 50-65lb braid is a must to avoid some serious heartbreak. Jigs traditionally are another big fish bait that may result in less bites but better quality. Make sure to add a trailer of some sort as well, I like beaver style baits like the Berkley Havoc Pit Boss in a color/size to match.
In general if you are just learning, I would recommend researching and joining a local bass club near you. That will lower your learning curve exponentially.
Are you looking to target largemouth or smallmouth? Are you fishing for numbers or wanting to hunt for big fish? Can you give us an idea of your current tackle arsenal so we can offer applicable lure and technique suggestions? Any specifics you can provide are always beneficial when asking fishing-related questions. As you will learn, there are so many variables. Look forward to your reply.
