Most recreational anglers don’t have a lengthly pre-fishing period to dial in a bite. The challenge is getting out there with little on-the-water time, but yet, still putting together a game plan that produces plenty of hook setting. The old military acronym KISS (Keep it simple, stupid) states that most systems work best when they’re kept simple, rather than complicating. Hmmm, now fishing sounds like the place to apply KISS, especially when faced with little time, or a new body of water. Don “db” Barone takes his short form Q&A video format to several Elite Series pros with the simple question: “If you’re new to a body of water, how do you quickly find & catch bass?” The answers are remarkably simple.
