Fish will work
their way into this grass during the day. When the sun
is shining, there can be more fish seeking cover in
and along this type of grass.
The bank drops off very
sharply at the edge of the grass in this photo.
This type of
over can be hard to fish. You need a lure that will
penetrate the base of the grass and not get stuck when
you make an errant cast. Heavy gear and heavy line is
a must! Cast into the base of the grass and get the
lure in there as far as you can. Make a little commotion
on the surface and if the fish are using the grass as
cover, they'll hit it. Weedless Frogs, Rats, or plastics
will work here. Every once in a while you can catch
a fish in front of the grass on a spinner or crank bait,
but the best fish will be tucked away inside the grass
during the day. Make sure you cast into any pockets
or openings in the grass.
