How to Catch Shallow Bass In Early Summer

Its time to head shallow for some Summer bass fishing fun! Frogging, wakebaits, flipping, and a whole lot more... its the fishing we dream about all Winter long! If you're not going shallow with heavy tackle this Summer you're missing the boat on a lot of really fun fishing! Today Tim is breaking down all the baits he uses to consistently target bass in Early Summer.

Everyone loves catching bass on topwater but this is the time of year you can upsize to a big wake bait and catch a GIANT post spawn bass. If the topwater bite isn't happening you can head deep into heavy cover with a heavy punching rig and pull the big fish out of the shallows. If that's not working, there are some awesome reaction options like swim jigs and crankbaits that consistently fool Summer bass.

Don't miss your chance this Summer! Whether you're bank fishing a pond, paddling a kayak, or ripping around in a brand new bass boat, the Summer months have some amazing fishing opportunities. Head into the shallows and explore everything your lake has to offer! Below is a breakdown of the tackle discussed in the video.
