Fish below the shoals

Building on that idea, it’s always a good idea to fish below the shoals. Anytime you come to a shoal, be sure to make repetitive casts even if you catch one right away. The bass will often group up and sit beneath these shoals and wait for food to wash downstream to them. Make casts right into the swiftest water and also out along the edges where the current starts to subside.
