Shortcut Finding Bass by Studying the Shoreline

Your fishfinder only tells half the story when it comes to finding bass – savvy fisherman are constantly scanning above the water for telltale signs of fish, that is if you know what to look for. Professional bass fisherman Terry Scroggins explains how observing the bank and rock types during the spring helps you figure out where bass will be located in anticipation of the spawn. Different types of rock serve different purposes – pea gravel, for example, is an excellent substrate for bass to spawn on, making it a high-percentage spot to fish during the spring.
