PA Bass Fishing is about to start up!
"I like to use crankbaits and mix and match my rate of retrieve to explore different depths until I find fish," VanDam said. "When fishing a lipless shad, I want it to dive deep and skim along the top of submerged weeds.
"By using an aggressive, fast retrieve, I'm looking to attract big fish and trigger aggressive strikes. That's why I want to be down at least 10 feet or more."
For VanDam, big fish equate to big paydays on the BASS tournament circuit, and for recreational anglers they can represent that fish of a lifetime everyone hopes to catch. Technique alone, however, will not represent success without taking into consideration conditions and bait color.
