Medium Depths

The medium depth range for smallmouth bass falls into that 8 to 12 foot range, not quite very shallow, not quite deep water.  This is the area that a lot of smallmouth bass are found.  As bass get ready to spawn, you will see a lot of fish move into these depths before they go real shallow.  When the smallmouth bass eventually move back into deeper water, you can often find smallmouth bass that will move into the 8 to 12 foot range to try to find an easy meal before heading back down to 16 feet, 20 feet or even deeper.
