spot on the spot
« on: April 28, 2018, 06:51:39 AM »

What is the spot on the spot ?

Well lts start with what is a spot. A spot is an area that is holding bass. Easy enough except that is too simplified, you have to narrow it down to a specific zone or structure to be more consistent with your catches.
Scenario 1:
You have found the bass in the back of a bay. Thats great but lets narrow it down, they are hanging in a narrow weededge.
Awesome now you can fish a smaller area and move onto the next bay.
But hey lets nitpick a little and figure the spot on the spot. You have caught bass on the outside edge with a mixture of smal and better fish. You notice that the bigger fish have all come from the deeper pockets in the weeds.
That is your spot on the spot.

Scenario 2:

The fish are on secondary points where clay bank meet chunk rock. That makes an easy pattern to follow, easy to find and fish. But how is the most efficient way to fish them. First off use the sonar to find out the depth or depths that are beiing used by both the bait and bass.
You now have to determine how active the fish are. Fish a lure between the bait and bass and if they are hitting then they are actively hunting. If you don't get bit its time to slow down and get the bait right in front of the bass.
If you focus on the depth and the break in bottom composition the bites should come more consistently.

Sometimes it is hard to figure the spot on the spot out but if you pay close attention and figure it out you will spend less time fishing empty water helping you get more bites.

Some good information zippy.  ~c~ I would venture to narrow that spot on the spot down even a little more. Like say a certain tree or brush pile or stump within that spot. Like a Bass on the bed a lot of times there's a certain spot on that bed that you have to find before you can aggravate that fish to take your bait. Some spots just attract the biggest fish. They has been several time on my Crappie trips we were fishing docks and I discovered that one certain dock pole held the biggest Crappie around the docks and after I caught that one out the next time we fished that dock again I could go back to that same pole and catch the biggest Crappie again. There was just something about that pole that attracted the biggest Crappie to that spot.
