The summer time big bass pattern has started early. Today was the first day of the big fish open water bass that we caught all summer last year. When these big fish lock on to the open water shad they gorge themselves day after day with sometimes even showing themselves schooling on the surface. Shiners trolled over the flats is the best method but artificial will yield quite a few fish from time to time.

David Lin and wife took their first guided trip with today and I am sure it will not be their last. What do you think?

Till next time tight lines and good fishing….
