How to Dissect Deep Grasslines for Summer Bass

Peak water temperatures and choked out shallows often drive forage and gamefish to the outer edge of weedlines during summer months. Wired2Fish's Mitch Anderson explains how to target bass in these areas with Texas-rigged crawfish-imitating plastics that give off plenty of flash and vibration.

As the underwater video demonstrates, actively flapping plastics stand out in a pack of bluegills and draw reaction strikes. Cover density and buoyancy of the plastic dictate how heavy to go with your tungsten; Anderson explains why he prefers lighter weights and a more vertical pitching angle when picking apart these areas. He also hits the importance of a heavy power rod coupled with strong fluorocarbon line.
