Stable weather gives you the best chance of finding and catching smallmouth bass with some consistency. During 4 or 5 days of nice weather, smallmouth bass will typically get on a routine and they will feed in the same places around the same times each day. This isn’t always the case, but smallmouth bass do become much more predictable during stable weather patterns. As soon as the weather becomes erratic, the smallmouth bass move and their feeding patterns change. If you get some stable weather, you should be able to find a pattern and catch some nice smallmouth bass consistently.
