Advanced Fish Finder Steps for Finding Bass Fast

Pro bass angler Ott DeFoe breaks down how he uses a combination of side imaging, mapping and 360 Imaging to build a high-percentage milk run of spots before wetting a line. This is the exact step-by-step process that helped him win the 2019 Bassmaster Classic and it'll help you too.

Finding seasonal transition bass on reservoirs during the spring is a challenge for all anglers regardless of skill level. Ott takes us on a mapping deep-dive, explaining key locations to consider and how to configure and adjust the shallow water and depth highlight on his LakeMaster mapping to establish and stay on a working pattern.

DeFoe then takes to the bow where he uses Humminbird 360 Imaging to make precision casts to waypoints, key cover, structure or transition zones that appear on the image. This proven fish finder methodology works for most fish species and is easy to apply whether recreational or enthusiast angler, local or regional competitor or national touring pro.
