- In natural lakes these bass hide in the weed lines, humps, and rocky points that gradually slope into deeper water.
- In man-made lakes these bass tend to be found in the intersections in the river channels or around humps surrounded by standing timber.
- In rivers the bass can be found in deep backwaters and the side channels into the backwaters.
- In all of these locations the best reel that an angler could use it the baitcasting reel. Remember this type of reel allows the angler to make a more precise cast.
