Bass Fishing From Shore 101

#BassFishing from shore is nothing new to me! In fact, that is where most of my learning and experimenting took place. Whether it's a local pond, river, reservoir or large inland lake you can find Bass.

Being adventurous and constantly on the move is essential to success. However, knowing the right time to be out there is key too. SMB, for example will be present at a casting distance provided the temperature of the water is cool enough. If I was shore fishing 5 feet of water in the middle of the summer, with out weeds present, then that would be a waste of time, in my opinion! Now, if this shoreline is riddled with weeds and stumps I would be there with bells on, fishing for #LargemouthBass. A fast sloping shore line with somewhat deep water would hold better numbers of #SmallmouthBass would it not? That is a characteristic I would look for from a boat, so why would it be any different from shore!
