Post Spawn is the MOST DIFFICULT time of the year to consistently locate bass but not with these tips! Tim explains the bass' movement back to deep water as well as up into the shallows.
The biggest mistake anglers make this time of year is targeting the shallow bass or the deep bass instead of targeting BOTH. If you can locate both groups and learn to predict their future movements, you'll consistently catch bass all the way through Fall.
Shallow bass are much more cover oriented than deep bass and typically do not roam far. Deep bass tend to gather in schools but move rapidly from place to place in search of food. Finding the "sweet spots" where ideal cover is present on ideal structure with a food source is all it takes. Once you've located one of these areas you're set! If the food moves the bass will follow but by understanding the need for deep water access on main lake structure with cover present you can quickly relocate them.
