Summer bass fishing can be harder than both spring and fall, many fishermen come up to me for advice to find out why they aren’t catching any bass. They are expecting an easy answer, but anyone that is experienced with summer bass fishing knows there is no easy answer. Especially if you’re mid-summer bass fishing. Truth be told in order to bass fish the summer like the pros, you must follow these four keys.
First thing, watch the weather. Fishing before a storm and under overcast is a good time to go out bass fishing, bass tend to be really feeding during those conditions.
If you’re in a popular smallmouth bass lake, smallmouth tend to go deeper as the summer continues on. You have to try 12 the 20 foot range smallmouth bass lakes. So definitely try going deeper mid-summer to late summer.
Try different types of fishing lures, bass are very finicky during mid-summer, and they won’t just by it on any typical bait. I’ve had fishermen come up to me and say bait used live bait and not catch a single thing. Try using bait that is used from top to bottom, meaning top water fishing lures, mid-depth fishing lures, and fishing lures that stay at the bottom. You just never know where that big bass might be lurking.
If you can stand it, try bass fishing at night. There are so many different bugs and critters moving around the bass love to feed on. During this time bass have limited eyesight, so they are more vulnerable to our fishing lures and baits.
These are the four keys I use during summer bass fishing. I don’t want to say they will never fail you, because everyone knows that sometimes fish won’t buy no matter what. But I guarantee that these fishing tips will definitely help you catch more bass.
