Bass location......the best spot??

Recommended Posts

Guest Texas_Bass_Pro

If you were fishing in a lake that had a mixture of grass, rocks/gravel, stumps, lily pads, or lay down/ submerged trees and bushes then which one of those types of places do you think will hold the most bass?  The biggest bass?

Sounds like a great lake to be on but I think the time of the year would dictate where the best area would be.

The best spot would right in the corner of the mouth. If you are to close to the center of there mouth it's so hard you miss a lot.

Largemouth bass prefer 'soft cover', whereas smallmouth bass prefer 'hard cover'.

For largemough bass, the best weed types tend to vary with the seasons.

Based soley on lake topography, sweet spots for largemouth bass of all sizes

are places where emergent weeds come together with submergent weeds

and both merge with a bottom drop-off!

there is a lot more to it than just picking which one holds the most bass. There are a lot of factors that plays into which one holds the fish, Examples would be weather, water temp, bait or food, fishing pressure or even the time of day plays a part. My favorite preference is underwater structure.

Boy if only it were that easy to just go to the north side of a lake and catch the biggest bass.  Paaalease!!

North side of the lake,...lol,...someones got a sense of humor or just looking to rile the masses.  Let's hope it's humor.

I'm with Rolo on this one.  Location and time of year would be the biggest factors but aren't listed in question.  With that said, combine weeds and a drop and you have a high percentage area.

I use  the "old man" method.  

go out on the lake and use good binoculars to find an old man, usually in a john boat, usually fishing with live bait.  He will rarely move.  He is after big fish and has fished this lake for 50 years and knows where they are.

Warning!!!   Do not speak to this man.  He is NOT friendly.  

Use whatever location markers you can. And the minute he leaves, jump in there.

when he comes back he may move to another spot (now you know two) or he will approach you to talk.  Either way, it's a method I have used successfuly for years.

Avid your a funny person.  Thats not true all of the time, this one time i was in a pond, the old man told me to cast right in between two stumps, first cast, nada, 2nd cast BOOM 5lb bass. I say stumps, and lily pads are where they are at i think. That and north west.

When you ask a blind question you get a bunch of blind answers.

Time of year based on location: color of water: depth of water: temperature of water: temperature of air: cloudy or sunny: kinds of grass: kinds of wood: etc., etc.,,

This "Northwest Corner" thingy is a little overbaked.

The sun arcs in the southern sky, and arctic fronts are normally accompanied by northwest winds.

Consequently, the northwest corner of the lake is the most protected and the "first" section to warm up.

The key word here is "first", and the first lake section to herald the onset of the spawn,

is the first lake section to herald the end of the spawn, while other lake sections are still at peak spawn.

In addition, the northest corner of a large bay located in the southeast corner of the lake,

has no way of knowing that it's not in the northwest corner of the lake.

Why dont you go fish the lake and let the fish tell you what you want to know. :P

Looks like that is what I am going to have to do.   LOL

Just wanted to see where I should start off at.  Thanks for all the replies.
