‘Line up’ for Bass Hot Spots

By Nic DiGravio

Just because you are first in line to fish prime Bass real estate doesn’t mean guaranteed success! Believe me, that isn’t always the case!

I have been on hot spots many times after the fact and still boated Bass. It all boils down to which technique the Bass will prefer at that particular time.

I passed a reed bed 3 or 4 times during a one day tournament wanting to fish it, but because of stiff regulations it wouldn’t hold more than one boat. Finally, we were able to get in, and would you believe we put 2 fish in the live well and lost 3 others! The Bass obviously preferred our technique of dead sticking the bait over the techniques of the others. No one can tell from a distance what technique or bait others were using, but I am willing to bet that dead sticking wasn’t one of them. Basically, in a given day your pattern for catching Bass might work while others have failed. Being first, third or fifth in line is irrelevant!

So, let’s see now. As far as I saw, 4 boats fished one reed bed. We were the fifth boat in line and hooked 5 fish in a matter of one hour! Hmm……should I or shouldn’t I wait in line to fish that hot spot?????
