Weeds are where baitfish often congregate to find security, and usually weeds will offer slightly cooler, more oxygen-rich water.
If you locate a school of fish in the weeds, learn everything you can about the cover.
- What kind of weeds are they?
- How dense are the weeds?
- Where are the fish located in the weeds?
- Is the water dingy or clear?
- What’s the water temperature?
- Is it shaded or sunny?
If the fishing slows down in those weeds, go look for other weeds with the same ingredients and chances are you’ll find fish there, too.
