Fishing Shade Lines

FLW Tour pro Jay Yelas discusses how he sticks with shade when just covering water and finding bass. He fished one side of the lake early and then switches banks later in the day as the Sun repositions shade lines on different objects and banks. Shade is a natural ambush play for bass. Often you will fish shade and get your bite right as the bait comes out of the shade into the light. Other times it’s back in the deepest darkest spots of shade. Often shade can mean the water is a lot cooler which can be a big key in the summer months.
