I’ve always been interested by the things we simply assume to be true in bass fishing. While some of these old notions may be correct, there are many that I think mislead anglers. One of the most deceiving, in my personal opinion, revolves around summertime fishing.
We’ve all been told ad nauseam to slowly fish deeper water in the summer. We’ve been told that the bass are lethargic, therefore our retrieves must match their moods—slow and deliberate. Sure, I guess that makes sense to some degree. But it certainly wouldn’t hurt to look at things from a different perspective.
