Summer largemouth bass fishing comes with it’s fair share of challenges. Take sloppy, disgusting algae blooms for example. They’re gross. Now reduce the amount of water in a lake because of the heat, and that thick snot on top becomes a disgusting green blanket of dead bugs and line-discoloring stink.
The good news though, it it provides a lot of overhead cover for largemouth bass that are sitting up shallow… and it also hides YOU, as you approach them. This sloppy bass was caught on a simple jigworm 2 or 3 feet off the bank. I was using 8lb fluorocarbon but my entire spool was colored green after just a few casts, and this was on a spinning reel combo. Actually, it was the BBFF pole that we fixed in a previous video.
I can’t wait for summer.
