    If by weedy shoreline, you mean that the weeds are in the water, then you can probably catch a decent amount of bass by just fishing the weeds. If they are not too thick for topwater, you can try out your scumfrog across the top, or drag some of those plastics you are getting across the top, texas rigged weightless. If the weeds are too high to fish topwater, you can fish the weed edges with a spinnerbait, or the norman crankbait that you are getting, ( a tighter wobble would help). You could also fish a plastic texas rigged on the edges, or if 1/4oz is heavy enough, don't be afraid to fish in the weeds.

    Strangely enough, bass fishing is cheaper for me than catfishing. I use a $20 rod and reel combo I got at either Wal Mart or the local BX here on base, 1/0 worm hooks, 7-9" plastic worms, and 1/4 oz. weights. If they are hitting topwater in a really weedy pond or lake (like ours here on base) I use a frog made by SnagProof Lures. This thing will go across the weeds and never get hung up on them. It is perfect for getting to the holes in the weeds where bass like to hide waiting for food. The plastic worms work well for this too if used weightless (bass love eating snakes).

    Be warned, you will catch large frogs using these on top of the weeds too.

    ok... i wouldn't spend $50 on that ebay auction... that stuff he probably bought (mostly on sale) for about 30... regular retail, even at the highest marked up bait/tackle stores may be $80 for all that you get... All you need for ba$$ fishing is a 1/2 way decent rod... 6-6.5ft m/mh rod w/ matching reel, 12 lb test... some offset shank worm hooks (2/0's are a good all around choice). some zoom UTales, powerbait 4" worms, a shallow running crankbait, medium running crankbait, deep running crankbait, 2 spinners (one inline, one bend arm), some topwater (zara spook or Rebel Pop R are my personal fav's)and 1 jig. and your set...

    $30: Rod and Reel
    $05: Line
    $03: Hooks
    $04: Plastic worms
    $09:3 crankbaits
    $03:2 Spinnerbaits
    $03: Topwater
    $02: Jig
    $04: Tackle box (Plano 3600 box)

    $63 at the most expensive Tackle Shops.... usually around $45 at the cheaper ones and even lower if you get stuff on clearance or sale...

    Now i know it doesn't seem like as good a deal, but that package i said you will be able to fish 90% of situations with alot easier then you would with the Ebay auction... plus it'll take up less space and be easier to carry while you walk the shore...
