Bass LOVE muddy water! Its not as tough as you think to catch fish when the water is murky. Anglers often lose confidence and begin to struggle when the water turns muddy and starts to rise but its all in their heads. Rising muddy water means more food and more food means aggressive bass. When the muddy conditions arrive this year, you'll be ready!
Don't let water color scare you. Whether your lake is crystal clear or chocolate milk the bass still need to eat. Its all about adaptation and recognizing changing conditions. Don't be afraid to fish aggressively in dark water. Matt's favorite bait in high, muddy water is a spinnerbait. There is no reason to slow down unless the bass won't cooperate. If that happens, we've got a handful of other techniques you can try with confidence.
Below is a breakdown of the baits discussed in the video. All of these are proven producers in stained to muddy water. Don't be afraid to get out there after the next big storm, you might be surprised how many fish are willing to bite.
