Summer Bass Fishing Guides - 4 Useful Tips and Tricks

Summer is the most abundant season for the bass food chain, as the water temperature rises, the bass will migrate to feed at the junction of clear and muddy water of the muddy water area in the west coast, so the bass can be found everywhere in this season.

 Summer Bass Fishing Lures

Small mullet and other small fish will be most easily clustered in the reef, they especially like places in the anti-surge area, the dam top, the wharf, pier and the reef area of the significant extension of big island mountain types, most bass will also follow the fish came to these places for predation just to capture food.

1. Anti-wave Area

The terrain to produce anti-wave surge is certainly in the shallow, and the terrain is most prone to surge when there’s a inclined angle down the reef, small fish will most easily cluster at the surge, so the bass often appears here, while in the absence of surge sometimes, the bass will also lurk in such fishing spots to look for prey, when the water color is not the clearest, the bass will follow the surge and rush to the beach to prey, the bass tour layer at fishing place is often very shallow, and sometimes it’s very stunning, you must draw back the tape after throwing out lure, and it’s also very easy to hook, the use of hard baits should be mainly popper lures and minnows, you can choose the light ones of 21g -23g in the use of a jig head, when standing on the rock, you can directly throw the lure to the spot. For the use of a jig head, when the lead hook falls on the spot, it’s better of surging time, the speed of tape drawing can be slightly faster, do not worry that the bass cannot catch up with the lure, usually, there will be fish in the hook. If it is boat fishing, you can directly throw lure to the surge area, the key is to throw to the fishing site when the surge is at the highest, control the drawing speed according to the terrain’s inclined angle, and generally, the drawing speed is firstly fast and then slightly slow when the surge ebbs, and then there will be fish on the hook, what’s to be noted is that in case of such a fishing site when you throw on the ship, the closer from the lure placement to the reef, the better, which is the same as the millipede bass.

2. Near the Wharf and Pier

As a large number of small mullet t often gather near the wharf and pier, these small mullet will become bass’ prey, so the bass will come here, when the tide comes, you can also often see the lovely scene the bass preys out of the water, however, when you throw the tape near the wharf and pier, it’s always hooked every time, the tide and time matter the most, especially after the tide ebbs by half and begins to rise, the small mullet will be swimming in groups, at this time there’ll be the highest rate of bass hook, and the fishing method at the spots is like this: you can walk around the wharf, draw the hook, or draw the pod right to left, the lure selection is the same as above, while the bass in the wharf mostly prey on small fish, so sometimes there’ll be unexpected effects by using the medium and small soft baits on the hook, in recent days, fishermen on Zhoushan Daju Island often use this method for fishing, they often catch bass, there’ll be the news of fish harvest every day, some of the local hooks with soft bait are also sell out of stock. The effect is particularly good.

3. The Top of the Dam Outside the Inner Bay and the Prominent Protrusion of the Terrain

In such terrain, the bass often prey to the inner bay with the rising tide, and travel out of the inner bay with the ebb tide, the top of the dam outside the inner bay and the prominent protrusion of the reef are the places the bass must pass through, so there’ll be sure high hooked rate by choosing such a fishing site. Generally speaking, when the tide rises, the flow is also from outside to inside, the time of rising tide to the half is when the bass travels inward, while when the slack tide flows back, bass will bite the hook at the top of these two terrains above, but the time is very short, when the tide ebbs by half, there’ll be the highest rate of bass hook, and it can last till tide ebbs when there is fish. Bass fishing at such place, when the water is muddy in the period of high flow, you can choose to go fishing when it ebbs, as it’s muddy when tide rises in high flow season, and the water is relatively clear in the inner bay after tide ebbs, so after the ebbing, the clear water will flow to the sea through the above fishing sites, and this is the best condition, sometimes you often see the bass jumping. Be sure to hold the fishing site when you fish bass at this fishing sites, as the time for the bass to move in and out is very short, and it’ll be hard to fish the bass when you miss the best time of hooking, the lure selection is the same as above, you can use the method of dragging near the dam, do not throw the bait towards the sea, but to stay close from the dam, drag parallel to the reef, and this is important. Be patient when you find the fish is not hooked, repeated try with other fishing lures, and the harvest will be quite abundant at such fishing sites sometimes as long as the method is correct.

4. The Top of the Dam without the Inner Bay and the Protrusion of the Reefs

As there is no inner bay at such a terrain, the judgment of tides is particularly important, in general, the head-on tide at the bulged position of the top is the best fishing time, when the dam goes to the south, that is, the top of the dam faces to the south, the flow is from south to north, so it’s the bass fishing time, when top of the dam faces to the west, the best bass fishing time is when there’s northwest tides, which flows from west to south, this is also one of the most important factors of bass throwing, must be understood.

Summer is the season of the richest food chain, and the distribution of the food chain is that the richer food to the east and less to the west, and you can tell at the first glance whether the fished bass is fat or not, generally speaking, the bass fishing near the west mainland coast is relatively thin, the tide water is often muddy in the reefs and islands of the west bank, so you’d better fish when the water is shallow and clear, and the throwing fish effect tend to be better at these fishing spots when the water is clear. In summer, as the east sea has food rich and clear water, you’d better fish when the water color is in slight beige color after the wind. However, the fishing rate will be slightly lower than the west islands & reefs with clear water.
