Shallow Or Deep

Recommended Posts

I've been fishing alot for the past two months and here in like the last 2 weeks its hard to get a bite, I've pitched jigs under trees into brush up to the bank, ran square bills all through the lakes and tried t rigged worms and topwater baits, so my question is, what the heck are these fish doing? are they deep or just not feeding as much since its getting really hot

It's all about location, can't catch them if they are not there feeding.

LMB have 6 basic annual location cycles; winter, pre spawn, spawn, post spawn, summer and fall. The only time bass are not located near food is during the spawn. To locate bass, locate the prey they are targeting.

On deep structured man made lakes the prey is bait fish and crawdads plus whatever else is available. During the summer period bass have a lot of choices; young of the year bass, pan fish, carp, catfish plus minnows, shad, crawdads, frogs, worms and insects. However shad tend to be the primary bait fish in deep structured lakes, in lakes that have a shad population.

Find the prey, the bass will be close by.

Now you mention it, I caught 6 bass the other day, 3 using a crawfish colored crank, and 3 using a shad colored crank, the 3 on the crawfish color all were actually eating a crawl when i caught them

The spawn is just about over in most of the Country i have found that i catch alot of fish on the main Chanel drop offs i like to look for places that have old trees or stumps on the drop offs of big flats the ones that are 10 to 15ft works best for me you can use a jig or a worm or even a weighted SENKO or drop shot and you can load the boat. Or if you find a old creak Chanel running through a flat you could try a Carolina rig or crank bait when the spawn is over you wont catch me beating the banks im not saying there not there but i catch more fish offshore
