Tar­get Ar­eas

SA Bass - - Strategy -

For a good sur­face bite fo­cus on shal­low ar­eas. In most cases sur­face strikes come in ar­eas that are less than four foot deep. Per­fect for a wad­ing an­gler! Tar­get the same type of struc­ture you would nor­mally fish, like rocks, trees, grass and lily pads. The denser the struc­ture the more weed­less the bait you should be us­ing. The wad­ing an­gler has a dis­tinct ad­van­tage here as you can stalk bass in the grass and un­der lily pads very qui­etly and of­ten have the ad­van­tage of some cover to hide your­self too, that a boat an­gler never has and you can of­ten get into place that a boater can only dream about!

In the early sum­mer, sur­face fish­ing can be spec­tac­u­lar and it is an awe­some way for any bank an­gler to get into a few good fish but it is an even bet­ter way to get a friend or a child into bass fish­ing, since the adrenalin rush that comes of a sur­face strike is com­pletely ad­dic­tive an can re­sult in you hav­ing a fish­ing buddy for life! Get out there, get your feet wet and stay safe!
