How to Fish Offshore to Catch Summer Bass: Moving away from the bank will put big fish in the boat! In this video we discuss my method for finding bass that have moved into their deep summer haunts.
.
On many lake during the summer, the bass will move offshore and into deep water. The exception is often lakes with lots of vegetation. Those that move offshore do so for a couple of reasons. At depth, there is cooler water and they can feel more protected from the lake traffic above.
.
The first step in finding summer bass begins before I even leave the house. I first research the lake I am going to go fishing, even if I have lots of history on that lake. Google the lake you want to fish and find the sportsman and outdoors articled written about them during the summertime. You want to find the general conditions for the lake. At what depth levels do the bass tend to set up on? What types of structure seem to be better? Do the bass prefer certain types of cover? What types of lured do they want in the summertime on that body of water. Hopefully, by researching your home waters you can begin narrowing down where you need to search for bass.
.
The second step to catching summer bass is to examine your lake maps and contour lines. Take the average depth level and structure type found during research and shade those areas on your map. This will help identify locations across the lake where the bass may be staged. Of course, in the summer you are looking for main lake points, humps, ledges, long tappering points, and channel bank swings.
.
The third step in finding fish during the summer is to spend time on your electronics. When you first get on the water check to see if there is a thermocline in the lake. Also check to see at what depth level are the majority of bait fish sitting at. This can help you confirm or deny the assumptions you made during your planning and you can make adjustments on where exactly you need to spend time graphing.
.
One I start graphing the structure I identified before getting on the water, I am looking for two things: cover and fish. In the summer, I like finding brush piles and rock. The bass seem to set up around those areas and they are also pretty easy to know when you hit them with your lure. When looking for fish, the ideal scenario is to find a couple schools of shad on top of a piece of structure, near cover, with a few larger fish below. When you find this set up, you are sure to be bit within the first few casts.
.
If you are graphing an area and the fish seem to be suspended off a piece of structure and in deep water, go ahead and mark that area. Those fish are inactive at the very moment, but are relating to that object. At some point, those fish will move up to feed. So come back to that way point a couple hours later and the fish may be in a better positions to catch.
