Pattern Bass Quickly by Fishing Faster with Jacob Wheeler

Jacob Wheeler walks us through his pre-fishing program for developing a tournament-winning strategy.

Slow and methodical or fast and moving? It boils down to personal angler style, and both types can excel. Elite Series pro Jacob Wheeler tends to be the latter, favoring moving fast and hitting isolated pieces of cover to put together his best 5 bass. But moving fast and covering water is also his preferred way to contact fish and establish an initial pattern. He explains how bass often relate to specific cover or composition changes, and that often translates to a broader pattern that can be ran on any given system. Fast moving horizontal baits like paddle tail swimbaits are top picks for triggering bites and establishing a locational pattern.
