Target Shadow Lines for Topwater Success

In fishing, there’s structure and cover, but a lot of us don’t pay attention to cover’s shadow, which is shade. Experience teaches us that overhead shade, or protection from the sun’s direct rays make bass less wary, and more apt to be in a positive feeding mood. Stetson Blaylock talks how he efficiently breaks down a body of water in the morning as it relates to banks first hit by the sun, and banks that have shade. A topwater is often his choice when targeting low light bass, so we get into boat positioning and casting angles relative to shade lines, and the importance of long casts.
