Have you bass moved shallow? Are they in the trees, pads, or grass? Here is everything you need to know to find them quickly so you can build patterns more efficiently and start catching more fish.
Step 1) Identify the edges of the cover. Whether your cover is 20 feet across or 2 miles across, you need to start your search on the edges.
Step 2) Move to the very center and determine if the fish are spread evenly throughout the cover or if they're only in select locations.
Step 3) Seek out the anomalies like points, creek channels, different types of grass or trees that stand out from the rest, etc.
Step 4) Repeat the process in similar locations until you have an effective pattern that can be duplicated.
