Finding Mid-Season Bass
As the season advances the bass work out into deeper and cooler water. Now, except early or late in the day, when the fish may be feeding in the summer shallows, the bait-caster should use an under-water bait. Locate the spring holes, for at this time the bass, particularly the smallmouths, congregate about these; if there are shady places along-shore, where the water is of fair depth, try your luck there. For much success at this season you must go down to the fish. If you find the bait you are using is not successful put on lead and the chances are it will make a difference. An ordinary spoon is a good lure for this purpose. When leaded it sinks rapidly and if not reeled in too quickly, travels at a good depth. A small dipsey sinker is the best to use.
