Best place to look for fish

Recommended Posts

On the lake I fish I noticed alot of the shoreline is fouled up with beds of milfoil,making it very difficult to fish from shore without getting hung up in the stuff. So I purchased a float tube to try to get on the other side of this stuff and get into deeper water,I now have access to the entire lake The water is green in colr but pretty clear,I can see the fins on my float easily.Theres not much other cover or structure,obstacles in the water,but one area of the lake is visibly very deep,a rock cliff goes straight into the water and the other bank appears to have lots of medium to large size rocks going into the water and the water gets very dark in that area.Im trying to figure out strategy,what to throw,when and where. I have been most successful with plastic worms and have thrown a deep diving BOMBER crankbait with not one strike as if there werent even any fish in the lake. The plastic worms are fun but would like to learn how to use different baits so I can most likely catch em on anything I throw and build my confidence. I usually put the lures down and just throw live night crawlers,but lures are so much more fun,although when I was fishing for bluegill on a ultralight slip bobber set up I "ACCIDENTALLY" hooked into my largest  bass to date,a 5 lb 9 oz'er I got that fish and man now I cant stay off the water!! Thanks in advance

fishinaz,

 Have your ever heard the term "Outside Weed Line". This is the edge of the Milfoil that is in deeper water. This is a good place to start. The grass has several attractive features that bass love. One is it holds little fish for dinner. It gives shade to hide in and it produces a large amount of oxygen. You can fish with crank baits, spinner baits, jerk baits, or anything that you want to use. Cast parallel to the weed line and work it along at various speed.

 Also, I forgot whose quote this is but it is a great one to fish by. "Start fishing where the shallowest water is closest to the deepest water."

I was reading the lastest issue of Bassmaster magazine. They had an article about fishing the inside weed line. THis may sound like a dumb question, but what is a inside weed line?
