VLOG #7 | Fishing Depth Changes for Pond Bass

Managing Editor Walker Smith explains how to target and fish depth changes, or break lines, when pond fishing from shore.

When a significant weather front rolls through an area, you can bet the bass fishing will be affected. With the somewhat limited mobility that comes with bank fishing, it can be tough to adjust when fishing smaller bodies of water. 

Wired2Fish Managing Editor Walker Smith has found break lines to be an excellent remedy to lethargic and post-frontal pond bass. There aren’t always many options when fishing from shore, but these small depth transitions can hold lots of bass whether they’re suspended and inactive or actively feeding in lowlight conditions. 

With Hurricane Matthew’s wind, rain and cooler temperatures affecting his hometown in Georgia, he takes to his favorite pond for a quick fishing trip to illustrate how he targets this overlooked pond structure.
