Fish the Weeds
On lakes that don’t have a lot of rocks, you will usually see the smallmouth bass relate to the weeds more than on lakes with a bunch of rocks and some weeds too. On these lakes, if you don’t know how to fish the weeds, you aren’t going to catch many smallmouth bass. This is where a well-placed weedless jig will help you catch a lot more fish. Pair it with your favorite soft plastic bait or lively minnows, leeches and nightcrawlers and you will catch more smallmouth bass.
Fish the Wood
Weedless jigs are great for presenting a variety of soft plastics and live baits while fishing the wood for smallmouth bass.
