During the summer months, bass can be found at many depths. Although many fish move towards outside weed edges and deeper off shore structure, there's still a good population of skinny water bass for those who are willing to crash the shoreline cover.

Lunkers go on the hunt after the lights go out


One of my favorite things about nighttime bass fishing is that it’s another one of those opportunities to catch a real trophy sized bass. To this day, there are still not as many folks that go out night fishing as you would think… and in turn, there’s less pressure on bass.

Summer Nights


In the heat of the summer in many parts of the country, bass fishing during the day time can be brutal. In many lakes, ponds and even rivers, most bass have made transitions towards deeper and cooler water. During these times, I have found night fishing to be a great alternative to battling the scorching sun.

Water

The ability to read water is not a mystical power or a special talent it is just being observant to the lay of the land. When we are driving to our fishing destination do we pay attention to the surrounding land hills, bluffs, mountains, or swamps... We should.

Rod & Reel Selection

Choosing the right equipment doesn’t have to be that complicated. I will give you as much information on the three basic setups I think will give you a good start without costing you a fortune. I would suggest going with two bait casters and one spinning rig.
