Bass Angler’s Guide to Bank Fishing

Bank fishing or as some call it shore fishing, is where most of us started out fishing as kids. Today more fishing tips and techniques are targeting anglers who fish from a bass boat, than from the bank. It’s pretty safe to say that not every fishing enthusiast owns a boat, or even knows someone that owns a boat. For those anglers shore fishing is the best option. In our bank fishing guide, we’ve outlined some key factors that will help you get the most out of your next fishing trip.

Seasonal Fishing

Fall Back Lunker Bass

Bass fishing in the fall provides some of the best fishing of the year for both numbers and size.  If you ask any seasoned angler when the best time to connect with a true giant, many will tell you either during the pre-spawn phase, or in the late fall (depending on where they are located).  I say late fall because that’s when bass will have gorged themselves in preparation for the upcoming winter, but there’s also another reason which I will explain later in this article.

Locating Bass In Key Feeding Zones

Want to learn how to quickly pin point the most productive feeding zone while fishing for bass?   If you can master this one tactic, you will consistently catch more bass.

One of the most important factors you can determine is if bass are looking for a “vertical” or “horizontal” presentation?  When you can identify this one piece of the puzzle quickly, the rest will fall into place easier.

At the very least if you only get the “vertical/horizontal” preference determined, you’ll be 50% more productive while you are out fishing.
