Fluctuating water can wreak havoc on shallow bass fishing patterns, but it can also concentrate the bass in very specific depth zones throughout the fishery. As a general rule, bass tend to move with the water; if the water is rising, the bass usually position a bit shallower. Conversely, if the water is dropping, you can expect to find more activity further from the shoreline. Wired2Fish Editor Walker Smith shares an in-depth explanation that will help you become more successful when faced with fluctuating water. He discusses a systematic method for dissecting particular pieces of cover, proper presentations and the importance of stationary and secondary cover.
