Gerald Swindle thinks a lot of anglers overlook the fact that spotted bass often stay shallow throughout the year like their largemouth cousins. We take a look at Alabama’s famed Lewis Smith Lake as a case in point. Although the bite was off, GMAN delivers great learning points on how staying on a typical shallow bass routine can produce well for spotted bass; we’re talking pitching jigs to docks and buzzbaits to trees and shaded banks . In his opinion, a lot of anglers default to finesse, when standard bass tackle works just fine. As always, Swindle brings wisdom and common sense to the often overcomplicated world of bass fishing.
