Bass Fishing Rivers (Grassy) | Tips to Find Good Spots

Do miles upon miles of similar-looking river habitat have you confused on where to start bass fishing? Wired2fish’s Kobie Koenig grew up fishing the upper Mississippi River for largemouth bass and shares some simple location tips that will help you quickly identify productive spots.


In addition to focusing efforts on big river bends, steep grass edges, and areas of change such as holes in the grass and woody cover, Koenig offers some tactical advice on pitching baits relative to grassy edges. Instead of making a typical vertical pitch, Koenig recommends making pitch casts that cover around 4 feet; doing so helps hone where and how bass are positioned relative to the cover (and building a pattern from there).
