Natural lakes of the north country are usually a glut of weed growth, making finding fish the textbook definition of needle in a haystack. What to do? Grind through endless expanses of good looking cover, only to connect with a fish here and there? Luckily nature does the work for us. Cooling fall temperatures push bass from expansive shallow water habitat to the first drop, where they consolidate into large and hungry schools. We explain how to find bass in nondescript grass lakes and cash in on a bite that can rival the pre-spawn.
