Bass Fishing In The Weeds

Consider fishing for bass that are suspended in the water over brush and other structure. If you can manage to locate brush in a creek next to a channel, you should be able to find largemouth bass suspended over it, particularly in the hotter summer months. Use spinners to fish the brush areas. Go slowly, and don’t bump the brush if you can help it.

You can also try brush tails when fishing these areas, especially if the water in which you are fishing has lots of shad native to it. If you get hung up, just cut your line and rehook. If you jerk your line around trying to free it, you will just scare away the fish.

As with any fishing experience, if you are new to it, you will take some time to really learn how the process works.  Work to improve your bass fishing tactics overall by doing what you need to.  Also, insure that you incorporate area specific methods, as often, the bass in your area will react differently from those located in another area.  The key is to be consistent in your approach but to vary your methods enough for your bass to stay interested.
