When your favorite stretch of bass water gets pounded by fellow anglers, all hope is not lost.
Whether it’s a certain lake or river, or maybe it’s just a key weedline or backwater lake on a river system, fishing pressure takes its toll on fish and makes it frustrating for the anglers pursuing them. If you’ve identified or know that an area holds good fish, the chances of them moving are slim unless there has been a drastic change. However, angling pressure will make fish tougher to catch. There’s no need to pull your boat from the water or abandon known hotspots, but it’s time to slow down, fish smarter and focus on getting those fish to bite again.
