How to Fish Deep Bridge Pilings for Bass

Bridges create unique structure for baitfish roaming over deep water. These areas often provide current and shade, benefitting both predator and prey. Professional angler Dustin Connell looks to these ares when fishing gets tough and talks about his strategy for how to fish deep bridge pilings for bass. Dustin focuses his efforts using electronics to scan each individual piling for bait and bass and most importantly what depth each is relating too. Once you’ve located which pillars have the most abundant fish and forage, the choice of bait is ultimately decided by the depth they are positioned. Dustin will switch presentations between jerkbaits, jigs, and fluke-style baits depending on depth.
